Shoaib Akhtar was disappointed at Pakistan cricket team’s inability to defend 340 against England in the fourth ODI ahead of the upcoming ODI World Cup which starts on May 30. England all-rounder Ben Stokes scored an unbeaten 71 off 64 to guide the three lions to a 3-0 series win.
Pakistan succumbed to a three-wicket win against England at Trent Bridge. In doing so, England registered a 3-0 lead in the series against Pakistan in the ongoing four-match ODI saga. Sarfraz Ahmed & Co. put up a total of 340/7 but failed to defend the score as England secured a win with three balls to spare.
Former Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Akhtar was left deeply disappointed by Pakistan's performance in the ongoing series. He took to social media to lament the poor bowling display that was on view for the world to see as Pakistan slumped to a three-wicket loss.
"Another failed attempt to defend a 300+ total by Pakistan and the series loss. Disappointed by the bowling again," Akhtar tweeted after the game.
Babaz Azam's 115 and half-century by Mohammad Hafeez helped Pakistan to a strong total of 340/7 which they should have successfully defended. However, their bowlers failed to defend the total even after reducing England to 216/5 at one stage as Joe Root, Jos Buttler and Moeen Ali were dismissed in quick succession.
England all-rounder Ben Stokes scored an unbeaten 71 off 64 balls to guide England home as Pakistan bowlers failed to seal the win. The final ODI takes place in Leeds on Sunday.
