Twitter Reactions: Jonny Bairstow’s quick-fire century powers England to record chase against Pakistan

Posted On / /

Jonny Bairstow smashed a sensational century as England cantered to a record chase of 359 to beat Pakistan by six wickets in the third ODI at the County Ground in Bristol on Tuesday.

Bairstow clubbed 128 runs off 93 deliveries, supported by 76 from Jason Roy, Joe Root’s 43 and an unbeaten 46 by Moeen Ali.

It meant England completed their second-highest run-chase in ODIs, and best at home, with 31 balls to spare.

After England’s thrilling win in the second game at the Rose Bowl in Southampton on Saturday, Pakistan again played their part in a run-filled contest, with both sides taking advantage of the batting friendly pitch, short boundaries and lightning outfield.

Asked to bat first, Pakistan piled on 358-9, led by Imam-ul-Haq’s composed 151.

But the visitors had no answer to the Bairstow assault, England taking a 2-0 lead without rested trio Jos Buttler, Adil Rashid and Jofra Archer.
