England vs Pakistan

Fielding wins the match for England

So Pakistan finished their forgettable ODI series against England losing all of the matches except for the 1st ODI which was washed out by rain. 

In the last and 5th ODI against England, Pakistan batting collapsed in the start as Fakhar, Abid and Hafeez were gone inside space of 5 overs and under 10 runs. 

Babar Azam & Sarfraz Ahmed formed a significant partnership for Pakistan but once again, when things were not going England's way with the bowl, they produced some extraordinary fielding displays which turned the match in their favor. 

First, it was Babar Azam who was run out by an amazing back-flip by Adil Rashid onto the stumps. Then, it was Buttler's artistry with the legs & also with the hands to find Sarfraz just short of the crease. 

Both well-settled batsmen were run out when the men in green were looking to get back into the match. Later, Adil Rashid produced another one-handed stunner off his own bowling to send Shoaib Malik back to the pavilion. 

It was indeed England's fielding which turned the match yesterday and a lesson was left for Pakistan to understand the importance of fielding in modern day cricket.
