Abdul Majid November 13, 2015

Pakistan were beaten by England in the second ODI of the four-match series after the visitors gave them a 284-run target to chase in Abu Dhabi.

Pakistan's batting displayed a dismal performance except Sarfraz Ahmed who was able to muster 64 off 76 balls.

Chris Woakes bagged four wickets for England, while David Willey accounted for three batsmen.

Earlier, England won the toss and chose to bat first.

Alex Hales (109) scored a century to lead England's batting while opener Jason Roy (54) and one-down Joe Root (63) scored fifties to make useful contribution in the total.

Wahab Riaz was the pick of the bowlers for Pakistan. He picked three wickets for 43 runs in 10 overs.
