With Eoin Morgan back in the side, England will aim to whitewash Pakistan when the two sides face each other for the fifth and the final ODI.
England won the toss and elected to bat
Abid Ali is in place of Imam-ul-Haq, and Shaheen replaces Junaid.
Pakistan squad: 1 Abid Ali, 2 Fakhar Zaman, 3 Babar Azam, 4 Shoaib Malik, 5 Sarfaraz Ahmed, 6 Mohammad Hafeez, 7 Asif Ali, 8 Imad Wasim, 9 Hasan Ali, 10 Mohammad Hasnain, 11 and Shaheen Afridi.
Stay tuned for the toss:
Pakistan became the only team to register 340+ scores in 3 consecutive ODIs, but still ended on the losing side. 😯
Will they be able to score enough runs to beat England this time around?

The match will be played at the Headingley in Leeds on Sunday, May 19, 2019. England has already won the series 3-0 and their sole goal will be to win this match as well. Pakistan would look for a win before entering the World Cup just to boost the side’s confidence a bit.

Imam’s arm bruised, not fractured
Imam-ul-Haq suffered a bruised arm during the previous match. Luckily for him and the Pakistan team, he is likely to be fit for the World Cup. He might miss the first few matches of the tournament but should come back into the team after a few matches. Abid Ali has been kept in the side as his replacement, but it is not sure who will open the innings with Fakhar Zaman. Mohammad Amir is also expected to be in the sidelines due to the illness which made him miss the last two matches.
Bairstow and Moeen back, Stokes and Roy likely to be rested
Liam Plunkett is among the England bowlers battling for a place in the final World Cup 15. Who would make your squad? 🤔

England will have their regular skipper Eoin Morgan back in the side along with Jonny Bairstow. Jason Roy and Ben Stokes are likely to sit out of the fifth and the final ODI, considering the bulk of matches which are scheduled later this summer. Mark Wood is also likely to be rested. Moeen Ali will come back into the team.
The series has seen many batters getting runs for fun on the English tracks. At Headingley on Sunday, we could see another run fest. The two teams are equally capable of scoring big scores and they have shown that already in this series. There are chances of rain and overcast conditions could bring the bowlers into the match.
