It was a dream series for Eoin Morgan and boys as they have defeated Pakistan in the four matches of the five-ODI series in the most convincing way. The European side will be aiming a clean sweep as throughout the series, Pakistani side has offered only brief patches of resistance against the much dominant English attack.

In the last game at Leeds, England faced a small setback when they lost four wickets in quick succession while chasing a total of 248. But the team fought back in style, as Jonny Bairstow and Ben Stokes scored beautiful fifties to steady the ship.

Mickey Arthur, the Pakistan coach also lauded the English team for such power packed performance throughout the campaign. As per Arthur, England's team is completely filled with power hitters, and this is what Pakistan lacks.

He also added that it is quite unbelievable to see so many strikers on their lineup.

Mickey even hinted about shuffling the team after this series.

For Pakistan, skipper Azhar Ali is showing glimpses of form, but he is not being given any support by his fellow teammates.

The young captain will aim to play this match as a unit so that impeccable teamwork can be showcased to put the hosts under pressure. Imad Wasim is another center point of attraction in this game.
