Nottingham - England beat Pakistan by three wickets in the fourth one-day international at Trent Bridge on Friday.

Victory gave World Cup hosts and favourites England an unbeatable 3-0 lead in the five-match series.

England were cruising to a victory target of 341 at 201 for one when Jason Roy's dismissal for 114 sparked a collapse that saw three wickets lost for seven runs in 10 balls.

But Ben Stokes's 71 not out saw England home with three balls to spare after Babar Azam made 115 in Pakistan's 340 for seven.

The series concludes at Headingley on Sunday.
