Jason Roy, James Vince, Joe Root, Jos Buttler (capt, wk), Ben Stokes, Joe Denly, Adil Rashid, Moeen Ali, Tom Curran, Jofra Archer and Mark Wood. Down 2-0 and in a situation where the best outcome for them would be to save the series, the Pakistanis need to give their best to stop a rampaging England from winning the contest.

At that point, the hosts looked set for another routine win on a ground where they had twice scored more than 400 in the last three years.

"I knew we had a big total on the board and I got out and I knew the job wasn't done so I was very frustrated".

This was a modest score on a Trent Bridge ground where England have twice set the record for the highest one-day global total, with last year's 481 for six against Australia following their 444 for three against Pakistan in 2016.

And skipper Buttler saluted his side's determination to get the job done on Friday.

Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed, who did not appeal for the Curran run-out was left regretting that decision but the wicket-keeper was arguably more frustrated by his team's succession of costly fielding errors.

We will bowl first in the fourth @RL_Cricket ODI! However, they lost four wickets in the space of 17 deliveries and slumped to 216/5 by 31st over.

Despite Roy's distraction, the absences of suspended captain Eoin Morgan and rested batsman Jonny Bairstow, England maintained their impressive form in the 50-over format of the game.

But when he was yorked by Hasan Ali, England still needed 22 off 16 balls. Stokes got the target down to 10 off 10 when he carved a six off Junaid that just cleared deep cover and he finished the job with a single. His entire day's work amounted to six balls, three of them full tosses.

Having hunted down a 359-run target easily in Bristol in the third ODI, England steadily chipped away at Pakistan's total with Roy leading the charge, bringing up his eighth ODI century in 75 balls.

Pakistan batsman Imam-ul-Haq suffered a nasty-looking injury just weeks away from the start of the World Cup when he was struck a painful blow on the arm by England fast bowler Mark Wood on Friday.

Azam and Mohammad Hafeez kept the runs flowing with a 104-run stand, during which Hafeez brought up his fifty, before he was dismissed by Wood for 59, which came off 55 balls and included two boundaries and three sixes.

Whether he would be able to play in the fifth and final ODI of the ongoing series against England would be decided after the second checkup, the sources added.
