With the series already in the pocket, Pakistan and England will be squaring off for the fifth and final ODI which will be played at Headingley in Leeds. This series has witnessed both teams piling up runs at will and with this being the last match, same can be expected.
After the 1st ODI got abandoned due to heavy rain showers, England displayed an emphatic show with the bat throughout the three one-dayers. Whether it was setting a target or chasing, England was up to the mark with the bat. Pakistan also went toe to toe especially in the batting facet but were unlucky to end up losing every time.
England must be eyeing a complete whitewash here, whereas Pakistan before heading into the World Cup will look to gain a consolation win which can give them some sort of confidence going into the mega event.
Pakistan won: 01
England won: 03

With short boundaries either side of the wicket, once again a heavy scoring thriller can be expected in Leeds. Bowlers are expected to go to the cleaners once again.
