LONDON: Pakistan will take on England once again in the fourth ODI of the series at Headingley Stadium, Leeds, on August 31, Thursday. TheNewsTribe.com will bring Live Score of the match for its users.
The team in Green might be in lesser pressure respectively as they have nothing to lose in the series. However, it would be notable if this factor brings in some positive energy required to win against high-flying England.
After a debacle in third ODI, skipper Azhar Ali might be feeling a bit of pressure and insecurity as his job is on stake.
As per Pakistan media reports, PCB is considering to axe Azhar Ali from captaincy after this ODI series against England.

TOSS: Pakistan won the toss and chose to bat
Favourite contender for the post is Sarfraz Ahmed, who has already gain much of limelight after his fifty in the first ODI and then a blistering hundred at Lord’s, before a 38-run innings in the third one-day.
He has shown colours and fighting spirit the way no other player in the eleven has shown so far.
Being announced as T20 captain, Sarfraz is already in the good books of PCB. However, his team’s performance in the only T20 against Man in Blue will clarify the situation even further.
After this series, Pakistan has three uphill tasks in the form of West Indies, New Zealand and Australia. It would be interesting to see how a new captain (if chosen) would adjust himself especially when there is no time available for preparation.
