David Malan and Saqib Mahmood starred as England registered a dominating nine-wicket victory over Pakistan in the first ODI.

Chasing a modest 142-run target, the Ben Stokes-led unit easily crossed the line in 21.5 over of the innings, courtesy of brilliant batting by Malan and Zak Crawley.

They ended up scoring unbeaten 68 and 58 respectively.

Shaheen Shah Afridi took the only wicket in the innings for Pakistan.

Earlier, after opting to bowl first, the hosts bowled superbly to bowl out the Men-in-Green for 141 in 35.2 overs.

The visitors were unable to recover from Saqib Mahmood’s early burst, who removed both opener Imam-ul-Haq (0) and skipper Babar Azam (0) in the first over.

Fakhar Zaman showed some resistance against England’s bowling attack. He ended up coming 47 off 67 deliveries.

Star of the show was the pacer Saqib Mahmood, who registered career best figures of four for 42 in his 10-over spell.

Craig Overton and Matt Parkinson also bagged two wickets each for England.

With this victory England go 1-0 up in the three match series.
