England hope to continue their dominance of Pakistan in One Day International cricket when they face off in the Third ODI on Tuesday, a match that will stream live from Nottingham, England, as the hosts with a win would clinch the series and record their 10th ODI victory over Pakistan in the last 11 head-to-head matches.
The streak goes back to September 22 of 2010 when England won the final match of what was a deadlocked 2-2 ODI series to clinch the victory at Southampton. After that, Pakistan failed to top England in ODI competition until last November in Abu Dhabi. England under one-day Captain Eoin Morgan has won five matches in a row since then.

England cruised to a four-wicket win on Sunday at Lord’s, after a 44-run win to open the ODI set earlier in the week, overcoming a solid 105 by Pakistan wicket keeper Sarfraz Ahmed holding the visitors to a solidly chaseable 251 all out.
Mark Wood and Chis Woakes took three wickets each, while Liam Plunkett claimed a pair and Adil Rashid added one more before the Pakistan innings ended with Mohammad Amir run out by Woakes.

Pakistan suffered another setback in addition to the defeat when they learned before the Second ODI that top order batsman Mohammad Hafeez would sit out the remainder of the tour — the ODI series plus a single T20 International — with a calf injury.
Pakistan summoned seven-foot-tall left arm pacer Mohammad Irfan to take the spot vacated by Hafeez.

While Pakistan lost a key player to injury, England expects to see its own star, Ben Stokes, resume his full all-rounder duties, taking the ball as a bowler for the first time in the series as he heals his own calf injury — and Stokes can’t wait.
“It’s so boring,” Stokes said of his games spent as a batsman only.
“Honestly, it makes the fielding innings seem a lot longer because if you bowl 10 overs it kind of takes 20 overs out of the game for you. But I pride myself on my fielding as well and one thing that keeps me switched on the whole time is that I don’t want to give away any runs.”
