Pakistan faced a humiliating loss from England in the first One-Day International (ODI) of the three-match series at Sophia Gardens in Cardiff on Thursday.

Ahead of the series opener, the England Cricket Board (ECB) had to rearrange the entire squad following COVID-19 cases in their camp after the home white-ball series against Sri Lanka. This was the prime reason many expected Babar Azam-led Pakistan to dictate terms in the game.

However, Ben Stokes and Co. dominated the proceedings and defeated the full-strength Pakistan side by nine wickets.

After putting the visitors to bat first, the hosts showed a top-class bowling display and packed Pakistan’s entire innings for a paltry 141 in 35.2 overs. English pacer Saqib Mahmood wreaked havoc, picking up a four-wicket haul for 42, including the prized scalp of Pakistan skipper for a duck.

In reply, England didn’t allow Pakistan pacers to capitalise and lost only one wicket before they chased down the target in the 22nd over. Dawid Malan and Zak Crawley played unbeaten knocks of 68 and 58 to take their side over the finish line.

Following the defeat, the passionate Pakistan cricket fans showed their disappointment and mercilessly trolled Pakistan for their poor show against a second-string England team. Some fans even asked when Pakistan will be facing their next series against Zimbabwe and Kenya to show dominance in the field.
