NOTTINGHAM: Tom Curran played an important knock towards the end of the England innings which secured the team’s win against Pakistan in the fourth ODI.
Curran batting at No 8 scored 31 from 30 balls which was part of a 61-run partnership with Ben Stokes at a time when it seemed the match had slipped away from England.
Tom Curran, however, might have been run out for six had either Pakistan or the umpires spotted that a second direct hit in the same passage of play had dislodged the one remaining bail as he scrambled to complete a run.
Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed, who did not appeal for the Curran run-out was left regretting that decision but the wicket-keeper was arguably more frustrated by his team’s succession of costly fielding errors.
“We had enough runs on the board and if we field well we win this game,” said Sarfaraz.
England defeated Pakistan by three wickets in the fourth one-day international at Trent Bridge on Friday, winning the five-match series 3-0.
