LEEDS, United Kingdom (AFP) — Chris Woakes took five wickets as England beat Pakistan by 54 runs to win the fifth One-Day International at Headingley yesterday.

Victory — in their final match before the World Cup hosts and favourites name their tournament squad tomorrow — saw England to a 4-0 series win after the first match was washed out.

Woakes took three wickets for no run in nine balls as Pakistan slumped to six for three in pursuit of a target of 352.

Babar Azam (80) and captain Sarfraz Ahmed (97) then kept England at bay, but both batsmen were run out and any lingering hope Pakistan had went with them.

England will have to reduce their 17-man squad to 15 for the World Cup, and captain Eoin Morgan told BBC Radio's Test Match Special: “I could pick 17 at the moment. It is going to be an extremely tough selection.”

Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed said: “Result-wise it is not ideal for the World Cup, but the way the batsman are batting we are ready for the World Cup.”
