Amir’s World Cup in doubt after suspected chickenpox

Mohammad Amir ruled out of third ODI against England; doubtful for World Cup

Asif Ali (51) kept Pakistan in the hunt with stands of 41 and 49 with Haris Sohail and Sarfaraz Ahmed, but his departure in the 46th over to David Willey - who had dropped him earlier - sparked an excellent spell of death bowling from England.

This was the 35th time since their miserable first-round exit at the 2015 World Cup that England had posted a total in excess of 300 - a feat they had achieved only 34 times in total prior to that tournament - an encouraging sign just weeks away from this year's edition. They probably don't get the praise that they should or that other guys get.

Obviously, a degree of pre-determination comes into some of the shots he plays but what is truly remarkable is his ability to improvise at the last split second, if the ball is not where he expects it, and to still produce a boundary option. Traditionally, they've been high scoring, especially the ones here and at Trent Bridge.

'You ask them to do more and they respond really well.

Despite his fine form for Hampshire, James Vince has struggled to force his way into the one-day side in recent seasons.

Buttler's blitzkrieg and half-centuries by Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow and skipper Eoin Morgan helped England to a huge total of 373 for three wickets in 50 overs. His first four hundreds spanned 85 innings.

Rafael Benitez future depends on crunch talks with Newcastle owner Mike Ashley
Newcastle United manager Rafa Benitez declined to confirm his future at St. I'm always really proud and pleased when I hear the fans singing my name.

"In the last few years, I've had some brilliant experiences". When you manage to do that a couple of times, that breeds the confidence that you can do it for an elongated period of time, ' Buttler added. "I was in prime position to see the whole innings and his freakish knocks seem to be getting closer and closer together". I wanted to build on that - and ride the back of that wave for all of last summer.

'It didn't actually swing much but I thought all the bowlers who were put under the pump reacted really well'.

"He's as good as it gets to be honest", Roy told Sky Sports.

Fakhar, the century-making hero of Pakistan's 2017 Champions Trophy final win over India at The Oval, was soon driving the recalled Woakes for six and later twice struck the fast-medium bowler for cheeky scooped fours. Pakistan were probably favourites for quite a bit of that (chase) with a guy 130-odd not out and looking pretty imperious.

Bairstow's 128 in a score of 359 for four - England's second highest winning total batting second in an ODI - vindicated Morgan's decision and left his side 2-0 up with two to play in a five-match series.
