Imad says Pakistan have gained a lot of positives from England ODIs

All-rounder Imad Wasim believes Pakistan have gained a lot of positives from their ODI series against England despite having yet to win a match.

England head into fourth ODI at the Trent Bridge 2-0 up with two games remaining after the first ODI at The Oval was washed out followed by 12-run and six-wicket wins at Southampton and Bristol respectively.

Pakistan, despite having problems with their batting, have managed to get to high-scoring totals in the second and third ODIs.

"If you take some positives, we have played really well in both games," Imad said on Thursday.

"Credit to England. They have batted really well, it's fine margins," added Imad, who insisted the tourists' morale was still intact despite their recent losses.

"I think the team is confident. We're going to put up a good fight again. Yes, they (England) are (tough to bowl at), that's why they are the number one (ODI) team in the world.

"But we take pride in our bowling as well and we have some plans, hopefully we can execute them next time."

Trent Bridge is considered a batting paradise, with England posting the highest two ODI totals in history at this venue – 481 for six against Australia last year and 444 for three against Pakistan in 2016.

"White-ball cricket is not a bowler's game but credit to the groundsmen and the ECB (England and Wales Cricket Board), the wickets they are preparing are unbelievable... It's like a batting paradise," said left-arm spinner Imad.

"It's going to be a belter for both teams. You have to find a way to contain and try to take wickets."
