England’s Jason Roy hit a superb century and Ben Stokes carried them home as they beat Pakistan by three wickets at Trent Bridge on Friday, surviving a middle-order wobble to take an unassailable 3-0 lead in the series.
Batting first, Pakistan scored 340 runs for the loss of seven wickets. Babar Azam’s century helped Pakistan reach a respectable target , yet once again a decent total proved inadequate for the tourists as England wrapped up victory after a tense finale with three balls to spare.
