England piled up a world record one-day international total of 444 for three against Pakistan beating Sri Lanka’s 443 for nine against the Netherlands in 2006.
Alex Hales, hits England’s highest ever score in ODI cricket, a majestic 171 surpassing Robin Smith’s unbeaten 167 at Edgbaston in 1993 against Australia, which was not enough to win the game.
Jos Buttler hit the quickest half-century by an Englishman in 22 balls, having managed just one run in his first seven deliveries.
Alex Hales’ fourth one-day century was brought up from 83 deliveries but still Hales accelerated as he launched Hasan over midwicket to break Smith’s 23-year record.
Pakistan were forced to bat aggressively but their batsmen struggled to build partnerships as they were bowled out for 279.
Sharjeel posted 58 in 30 balls but no one else caused any bother until the last pair of Yasir Shah and Mohammad Amir made merry, courtesy of a dropped catch by Buttler.
They smashed 76 for the last wicket. Amir, at No11, cracked a 22-ball half-century of his own, badly damaging Adil Rashid’s figures in the process.
