Jos Buttler smashed England’s second-fastest ODI century after just 50 deliveries, as the men of Eoin Morgan defeated Pakistan in The Ageas Bowl with 12 runs in a second ODI with high scores.
Buttler’s Tonne is 2015 in Dubai only with 46 to 100 against the same opponent in arrears. His undefeated 110 out of 55 deliveries brought England to 373-3 and his average against Pakistan in ODIs to 77 from nine innings.
The 28-year-old, who moved from 50 to three in just 18 balls, finished his eighth ODI century – a feat he celebrated by banging his newborn daughter Georgia on his bat.
Buttler’s tapping, paired with the fifties of Jason Roy (87 out of 98), skipper Eoin Morgan (71 of 48) and Jonny Bairstow (51 of 45), drove England out of the 300 for more than 300 cup trophies in Australia for the 35th time since its bleak 2015 World and New Zealand.
Buttler prevailed with Morgan after just 89 balls against Morgan, as England set up 112 of the last 10 overs to score the seventh highest ODI and top ODI in Southampton.
That score really seemed to be in jeopardy when Fakhar Zaman pulled away an attack from England, minus the remaining Jofra Archer, who scored 138 from 106 balls to bring Pakistan in 33rd to 227: 1 before coming off after a wide parade of Chris Woakes and was held back on criticism.
Pakistan continued to swing, even after the release of Babar Azam, 51, who had partnered with Fakhar for a second wicket of 135. 57), in the page for Archer, Liam Plunkett (2-64) and Woakes (1-72), who are exactly bowing to death.
England led the series 1-0 ahead of their third game in Bristol on Tuesday with five games, live at Sky Sports Cricket starting at 12:30. The first game at The Oval last Wednesday was washed out due to rain.
Roy Back In Action
Roy played his first game since he suffered a setback for Surrey in the Royal London One-Day Cup last month, with rising Faheem Ashraf delivery for additional coverage for six.
Bairstow – who had two horrors at the age of 33, first when Imad Wasim botched a run-out attempt and then when Pakistan’s Lbw Review stayed with referees – went first and scored Shaheen Afridi to a juggling Fakhar in the depths 115th
Roy drove Hasan Ali just below the eighth ODI ton to the middle of 13 runs, while Joe Root made a good impression for his 40, before drumming a half-tracker from outsider Yasir Shah on Midwicket at the start of the race. Buttler to the fold.
Yasir’s wicket was the only ray of hope during the damaged seven overs that went for 60 runs, with the leg spinner sending three horrible deliveries in a row to Buttler at the start of his innings, which the Englishman summarily sent to the border.
Do You Know What To Do Jos Buttler After 43rd Over?
Buttler started to race again in the 43rd over when he started Afridi for two sixes en route to a 32-ball-fifty and continued with stunning sixes on either side of the wicket, his century-seal the year before last. in front of the sailor Hasan, fly for a long time.
Morgan played the second fiddle – he only contributed 47 points to the unbroken level – although he still posted a 44th ODI on the day he became England’s best-serving player. In addition to Paul Collingwood he played 197 games.
Morgan then saw Pakistan make a good start in the chase, only for Moeen Ali – back in the side after overcoming a rib problem – to make the first break on 92 when he caught Imam-ul-Haq (35) from his own bowling.
However, the next scalp of England did not come for another 18 overs, as Fakhar, who blended power with inventions, carded his fourth one-day international century and found good support from Babar before falling to Woakes.
Wickets then made England favorites on a regular basis, but Pakistan were right until Willey Ali in the 46th and Imad Wasim (8) in the 48th game removed.
Pakistan needed 19 out of the final, but Woakes conceded only six goals conceded to let the guest captain Sarfaraz Ahmed (41) and his team narrowly beaten.
