Eoin Morgan Is Happy With Their World Cup Preparation

England took nearly four hours to bowl 50 overs in Bristol.

Pakistan's 358 for nine - a seemingly challenging total that England overhauled easily thanks mainly to a brilliant century opening stand between Jonny Bairstow (128) and Jason Roy (76) - featured plenty of boundaries.

There will likely be other changes as Jos Buttler and potentially David Willey could be rested for this match so Jonny Bairstow will keep wicket and James Vince and Tom Curran could be handed starts as they also aim to impress.

Shadab, who missed out on the ODI series against England which was expected to serve as preparation for the upcoming ICC World Cup 2019, had to stay back due to a virus found in his blood during a routine medical check-up.

Also disciplined by the ICC was Jonny Bairstow, who was reprimanded for hitting the stumps with his bat when he was dismissed in the 29th over.

Imam-ul-Haq entered the record books as Pakistan set England a target of 359 to take a 2-0 lead in their one-day worldwide series.

The left-arm batsman took the advantage of a true pitch, small boundaries and a fast outfield to make 151 from 131 balls - the highest ODI score by a Pakistan player against England and fifth-best in the country's history. While Roy scored 76 runs off 55 balls, Bairstow won the Player of the Match award for scoring 128 runs off just 93 balls. All I have to do is get in my rhythm otherwise you are mentally prepared for the challenge.

Asif hit three sixes and two fours in his 43-ball stay before he struck Woakes to Jason Roy at mid-off.

Bairstow, dropped on 86 when Faheem could not hold a tough caught and bowled chance off a fierce drive, was severe on anything short and nwent to his seventh ODI hundred off 74 balls, including 12 fours and three sixes. Their innings helped England to manage the first innings total of 373/3 (50 overs).

England are 2-0 up against Pakistan, with games in Nottingham and Leeds to come, after rain forced the abandonment of last week's opener at The Oval. The best Pakistan can do now is level the series by winning both the remaining matches. Pakistan squad was boosted with the news of its all-rounder Shadab Khan, having recovered sufficiently from hepatitis virus, of joining them in the next two days from Islamabad.
