Mohammad Amir and Shoaib Akhtar may have all the talent in the world with the ball in hand but they struggle to hold their own with the bat, sporting ODI batting averages of 18.15 and 8.95 respectively and who would have predicted on bookmakers.tv that Mohammad Amir would score 58 (28)?
England 444/3 (50 overs) - Alex Hales 171 (122), Jos Buttler* 90 (51); Hasan Ali 2/74 (10), Mohammad Nawaz 1/62 (10)
Pakistan 275(42.4 overs) - Mohammad Amir 58 (28), Sharjeel Khan 58 (30); Chris Woakes 4/41 (5.4), Adil Rashid 2/73 (10)
Result - England won by 169 runs
It is not the wisest thing to mention a bowler when talking about the game in focus. This was the 3rd ODI on the Pakistan tour of England in 2016 when the home team piled on 444/3 on the board - the highest ODI total at that point.
England broke their own record with 481 for 6 against Australia two years later.
The Pakistan bowling line-up failed to stand up to the carnage from Alex Hales (171 off 122 balls), Joe Root (85 of 86 balls), Jos Butler (90 off 51 balls) and Eoin Morgan (57 off 27 balls). Amir gave away 72 runs from his 10 overs but his figures seem golden when compared against Wahab Riaz's figures of 10-0-110-0.
Fall of wickets: 1-33 (Jason Roy, 5.2 ov), 2-281 (Alex Hales, 36.6 ov), 3-283 (Joe Root, 37.6 ov)
Chasing 445, it was not a surprise that Pakistan found themselves at 199/9 in the 36th over. This is when the fun began. Amir brought up his half-century off just 22 balls with three consecutive sixes off Adil Rashid. He added 76 runs in seven overs with Yasir Shah to bring down the margin of defeat to 169.
Amir was dismissed off a top edge off the bowling of Chris Woakes. His 58 off 28 deliveries became the highest score by a number 11 batsman in ODIs, breaking Shoaib Akhtar's standing record of 43 off 16 deliveries which he made against the same opposition in Cape Town at the 2003 World Cup.
Fall of wickets: 1-21 (Sami Aslam, 3.4 ov), 2-50 (Azhar Ali, 7.3 ov), 3-83 (Sharjeel Khan, 9.6 ov), 4-106 (Babar Azam, 15.1 ov), 5-108 (Shoaib Malik, 16.2 ov), 6-155 (Sarfaraz Ahmed, 24.2 ov), 7-164 (Hasan Ali, 27.2 ov), 8-180 (Mohammad Nawaz, 30.5 ov), 9-199 (Wahab Riaz, 35.2 ov), 10-275 (Mohammad Amir, 42.4 ov)
