After the significant fight back by the Pakistani batsmen, English bowlers hold their nerves in last overs and beat Pakistan in the second ODI at Southampton played on Saturday.
Pakistan bundled out at 361 with short of 12 runs that put England up by 0-1 in five-match series.
It must be noted that Steve Smith, David Warner, and Cameron Bancroft were banned for 12-months and 9 months respectively for their involvement in altering the condition of the ball using sandpaper during the Australia-South Africa Cape Town Test in 2018.
