Pakistan's cause was not helped, when Imam-ul-Haq, fresh from his career-best 151 during England's six-wicket win in Tuesday's third ODI in Bristol, had to retire hurt on three after missing an intended pull of an 89 miles per hour ball from fast bowler Mark Wood that hit him on the elbow. Buttler, who played a sensational unbeaten knock of 110 runs in the second match of the series, was rested for the previous encounter and is expected to take over the reins from Eoin Morgan.

Probable XI: 1. Jason Roy, 2.

It was a loopy full toss from Adil Rashid which was met by Hafeez coming down the track.

Although Pakistan side has performed decently in terms of batting in this series, England is still a batsman heavy side with class players like Jason Roy and Joe Root.

He was well supported by Tom Curran, who followed his four wickets to be the pick of the England bowlers with an important cameo of 31 off 30. Shoaib Malik, who joined the squad in Bristol after leaving for home due to a personal reason, could make his return. Asif Ali, 5. Sarfaraz Ahmed (captain and wk), 6.

However, when he was out edging behind a pull at Mohammad Hasnain, England's chase looked like being derailed.

Trent Bridge has a deserved reputation as a batsman-friendly ground, with England posting the highest two ODI totals in history in Nottingham - 481 for six and 444 for three.

There have been eight 400-plus scores at Trent Bridge since the start of 2016, more than at any other venue in the world.

Imad Wasim is a good choice as an all-rounder from Pakistan. "We had to reprint the whole thing because we think this is the tournament where the 500 run barrier will be breached for the first time in 50-over cricket".

Going by the sunny weather and flat pitches in England, combined with white balls that do not swing, expect new batting records this summer on world cricket's biggest stage. "You have to find a way to contain and try to take wickets".
