Pakistan 265-7 (Mohammad Hafeez 64, Swann 4-37) v England
Fourth One-Day International, Lord's

Pakistan made 265 for seven against England in the fourth One-Day International at Lord's after Mohammad Hafeez stroked a half-century and Graeme Swann took four wickets for the home side.

Having won the toss and chosen to bat, Pakistan got off to a good start with Hafeez combining well with opening partner Kamran Akmal (28), who was first to fall when he was caught by Andrew Strauss off Stuart Broad.

Swann then struck to have Asad Shafiq bowled for 11 and Mohammad Yousuf caught behind by Steve Davies for three. Hafeez and Fawad Alam (29) were next to be dismissed, caught by Strauss, and then bowled by the off-spinner who returned four for 37.

Hafeez hit five fours and a six in his innings, facing 100 balls and after Umar Akmal, who made 21, and Shahid Afridi a belligerent 37 in 22 balls, it was left to Abdul Razzaq to finish off the innings with some big hitting and he blasted an unbeaten 44 in 20 deliveries with eight fours and a six.

Broad returned two for 44 with Tim Bresnan the other player to pick up a wicket.
