August 30, 2016 became a day to forget for the Pakistani cricketers as they were beaten down and out by England at Nottingham in the third of the five-match ODI series.

England, after opting to bat first, scored a record 444-3 in 50 overs and Pakistan's reply of 275 all out was not at all satisfactory.

Apart from Sharjeel 30-ball 58 and Mohammad Amir's (58 off 28) late flurry with the bat, there were not many moments for Pakistan to cherish in the match.

England have now bagged an unassailable 3-0 lead in the series and here is what the Pakistani cricketing fraternity had to say about Azhar Ali and his men's defeat.
