A wicket-maiden from from David Willey made Pakistan's cause even more difficult. That happened in the 43rd over.

A direct hit from wicket-keeper Jonny Bairstow to send back Mohammad Nawaz.

WICKET: Mohammad Nawaz run out 2 (3b)

And suddenly the target look difficult for Pakistan, even after that massive fourth-wicket stand between Sarfraz Ahmed and Shoaib Malik.

In the last five over Pakistan added another 23 runs, losing 1 wicket.

They still need another 24 runs from the last 30 balls of the innings.

For England, rookie spinner Liam Dawson's been expensive but his two wickets will have a major bearing on the fate of the match.

Over 40 || Score 256/5 (Mohammad Rizwan 4; Mohammad Nawaz 0)

Brilliant bowling change from England skipper Eoin Morgan. Brought in Liam Dawson, and the slow left arm spinner provided the all-important breakthrough, removing  Sarfraz Ahmed.

The Pakistan batsman tried to cart over the mid-on, but ended up offering a catch to Alex Hales, who completed it despite covering some grounds.

WICKET: Sarfraz Ahmed c Alex Hales b Liam Dawson 90 (73b)

That happened off the fourth ball of the 38th over. With that a massive 163-run stand was broken.

Mohammad Rizwan joined Shoaib Malik in the centre.

By continuing to take risk against spinners, Pakistan allowed England to claw back in the match. Just after hitting a massive six over bowler's head, Malik tried another, but this time, ended up losing his wicket. Caught at mid-off by Jason Roy.

WICKET: Shoaib Malik c Jason Roy b Liam Dawson 77 (80b)

And in the last five overs, Pakistan have scored 28 runs losing two wickets, including 12 from the 40th over, bowled by Dawson.

Brilliant display of ODI batting from both Sarfraz Ahmed and Shoaib Malik as Pakistan took a decisive hold into the match.

Both the batsmen have reached their respective fifties. They have put up 109 runs for the fourth-wicket stand, in 16.1 overs.

In the last five overs, they have score 37 runs. Pakistan still need another 117 runs from 20 overs. Well under 6.

Over 25 || Score 149/3 (Sarfraz Ahmed 43; Shoaib Malik 26)

4, 7, 6, 11, 8: This is how Pakistan scored in the last five overs with Sarfraz Ahmed leading the charge.

In these middle overs, Pakistan have certainly wrested back the initiatives from England. The fourth-wicket partnership between Sarfraz and Shoaid has seemingly stalled England's bid for a series whitewash.

Over 20 || Score 113/3 (Sarfraz Ahmed 16; Shoaib Malik 19)

In the last five overs, Pakistan score 32 runs without losing further wicket. Sarfraz Ahmed and Shoaib Malik have steadied Pakistan's innings.

A double-wicket over from Mark Wood has put a stupor to Pakistan's chase.

In the 14th over, Wood accounted for the wickets of Babar Azam and Azhar Ali – both settled batsmen.

Babar was bowled, off the third ball, then Azhar perished, caught behind off the fifth ball.

WICKET: Babar Azam b Mark Wood 31 (29b)

WICKET: Azhar Ali c Jonny Bairstow b Mark Wood 33 (37b)

Sarfraz Ahmed and Shoaib Malik are the new men for Pakistan. They need another 224 runs from 35 overs.

Over 10 || Score 64/1 (Azhar Ali 23; Babar Azam 29)

The arrival of Babar Azam has given Pakistan a new lease of life, scoring freely and more importantly, the confidence.

In the last five overs, Pakistan have scored 42 runs, at a rate of 8.40.

In the ninth over, bowled by Chris Woakes, Pakistan scored 13 runs with three fours — two by Azhar Ali, and one by Babar.

Azhar and Babar have added 42 runs in 5.1 overs for the second wicket stand. And they still need another 239 runs from 40 overs.

Over 5 || Score 22/1 (Azhar Ali 11; Babar Azam 0)

Steady start to Pakistan's chase of 303-run target. Azhar Ali and his opening partner Sharjeel Khan have added 22 runs runs for the first wicket, without taking too many risks.

For England, Chris Woakes and David Willey operated in tandem. Willey's figures slightly better, thanks to a maiden, bowled to Sharjeel, in the second over of the innings.

But Khan perished to Woakes, off the fifth ball of fifth over. Caught at mid-on by Mark Wood. A lame shot for an opener. Simple scoop.

WICKET: Sharjeel Khan c Mark Wood b Chris Woakes 10 (16b)

Babar Azam joined his skipper in the centre.

Jason Roy and Ben Stokes both struck quickfire fifties as England made 302 for nine at Cardiff.

At 244 for five England -- who posted a world record 444 for three in the third ODI in Nottingham -- were set for another huge score.

But Pakistan pegged them back with paceman Hasan Ali taking an ODI best four for 60 and left-arm quick Mohammad Amir three for 50.

WICKET: David Willey Mohammad Nawaz b Hasan Ali 6 (15b)

Jordan hit the second ball of the last over for a six. A dot ball, then a double as England reached 300.

Ali was Pakistan's most successful bowler. His figures are  10-0-60-4. But it was Imad Wasim, who curbed the scoring rate with his 10 overs. He conceded only 33 runs, and also taking a wicket.

Over 45 || Score 275/8 (Willey 2; Jordan 1)

England lost momentum towards the end of their innings with Pakistan taking three quick wickets.

Hasan Ali returned to removed Chris Woakes in the 44th over, then Mohammad Amir took care of Liam Dawson in the next over.

Woakes, known for his hitting prowess, hit the first ball of the 44th over for a four, then lost the stumps the very next delivery. Wicket to Ali.

Then, Mohammard Amir got rid of Liam Dawson, who was bidding his time to launch. Caught at mid-wicket.

WICKET: Liam Dawson c Umar Gul b Mohammad Amir 10 (13b)

Over 40 || Score 244/5 (Stokes 65; Dawson 3)

One massive over and England moved closer to 250-run mark. Ben Stokes milked Umar Gul's eight over for 17 runs, which included a four and six, and lots of singles.

The previous over, bowled by Imad Wasim, resulted in six runs. And in these two overs, England have added 23 runs.

Over 38 || Score 221/5 (Stokes 46; Dawson 1)

The partnership between Ben Stokes and Jonny Bairstow broken with Umar Gul removing the later in the 38th over.

WICKET: Jonny Bairstow c Mohammad Rizwan b Umar Gul 33 (36b)

Bairstow picked up the short ball, and tried to ramp it down the third man. But he ended up offering an easy catch at backward point, taken by Mohammad Rizwan. That happened off the fourth ball of the over.

Liam Dawson is the new man, and he will now play second fiddle, expectedly, to Stokes.

Over 35 || Score 206/4 (Stokes 41; Bairstow 24)

A good over from Imad Wasim, only three runs off the 35th over. But Pakistan have conceded fresh grounds to England with Ben Stokes Jonny Bairstow scoring at will.

For Pakistan, Iamd Wasim continued to impress with his slow, left-arm spin. He has conceded 16 runs only in six overs.

Over 20 || Score 126/3 (Roy 68; Stokes 6)

Mohammad Amir returned for Pakistan and was pivotal in giving his team and early breakthrough. But England got their opener Jason Roy batting beautifully, and he has since steadied the ship.

England: Jason Roy, Alex Hales, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan (capt), Jonny Bairstow (wkt), Ben Stokes, Liam Dawson, Chris Woakes, David Willey, Chris Jordan, Mark Wood

Pakistan: Sharjeel Khan,Azhar Ali (capt), Shoaib Malik, Babar Azam, Sarfraz Ahmed (wkt), Mohammad Rizwan, Mohammad Nawaz, Imad Wasim, Umar Gul, Hasan Ali, Mohammad Amir

Earlier, Pakistan captain Azhar Ali won the toss and elected to field in the fifth and final one-day international against England in Cardiff.

England, 4-0 up and bidding for a first home 5-0 series whitewash, made three changes to the side that won by four wickets at Headingley on Thursday.

They gave an ODI debut to Hampshire left-arm spinner Liam Dawson, with specialist slow bowlers Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid both rested.

Pacemen Chris Woakes and Mark Wood returned, with fast bowler Liam Plunkett also rested from this match in the Welsh capital.

Pakistan made two changes, left-arm quick Mohammad Amir returning after giant quick Mohammad Irfan was ruled out of the rest of the tour after cramping up at Headingley, and all-rounder Shoaib Malik replacing top-order batsman Sami Aslam.

The Pakistan team also featured all-rounder Imad Wasim, born in the south Wales town of Swansea.


The pressure is on Pakistan to avoid a 5-0 whitewash against England, who have been the better team in all departments of the game throughout the limited-overs series.

After a brilliant show in Tests, Pakistan failed to carry the momentum in ODIs and it would be a great achievement for Eoin Morgan and his men if they win the last match of the series as well.

After being crushed by 169 runs in the third ODI, Pakistani bowlers did show some improvement in the next game where they had reduced hosts to 4/72 at one stage. But the visitors failed to capitalise from there as Ben Stokes (69), Jonny Bairstow (61) and Moeen Ali (45) chipped in with significant knocks to turn the match in England's favour.

Skipper Azhar Ali silenced critics to an extent with this brilliant 80-run knock in the previous match. Pakistan will need a similar effort from their skipper in the final ODI as well.

Mohammad Amir is likely to make a comeback for the match where he will replace Mohammad Irfan, who suffered cramps after bowling five overs in the fourth ODI.
