That's all from this high-scoring but one-sided game. 717 runs came in total as their was no respite for the bowlers on this minuscule ground in Bristol. The action for the fourth ODI moves to Nottingham. Do join us on 17th May at 1300 local (1200 GMT) for all the action. Cheers!
Jonny Bairstow is chosen for the Man of the Match award. He led the charge of England's batting superbly with his 93-ball 128.
Earlier in the day, powered by Imam-ul-Haq's impressive century and some handy contributions from Haris Sohail and Asif Ali, Pakistan posted their best ODI total batting first in England. At the halfway stage, they would have really fancied their chances but the way their bowling faltered was really disappointing.
Abysmal bowling and fielding performance from Pakistan. Jason Roy was dropped when he was on 21 and after that, their bowlers received a real pounding. There wasn't a single bowler who left any impact or created any pressure. To add to that, their ground fielding was also very substandard. With the World Cup knocking on the door, Pakistan have a really big issue to address.
It was a usual story for England. Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow went berserk at the start and put together a 159-run stand in no time. That pegged Pakistan back and in spite of losing Jason Roy, the English team always remained in front. Bairstow and Root then combined for yet another handy partnership to keep the visiting team on the back foot. All the batsmen to follow after that contributed to the cause and eventually it was a very easy and comprehensive victory for the numero uno ODI team.
A cakewalk! England have chased down a target of 359 with ridiculous ease. Didn't even break a sweat. Insane batting. The bowlers suffered yet again. Really feel bad for them. This is the joint fifth highest run chase in ODI history and it has been done with 31 balls to spare. Dominance of the bat at its very best.
44.5AAli to EMorgan
Surely not! Morgan pushes this ball through the point region and picks up the winning run. ENGLAND WIN BY 6 WICKETS and WITH 31 BALLS TO SPARE. They take an unassailable lead of 2-0 in the series!
44.4AAli to MAli
Short on middle, Ali misses out on the chance to get a big one and score a fifty. He hits this to long on aerially for a single. Only 1 needed now! Morgan not going to defend 2 balls surely. Is he?
44.3AAli to EMorgan
The batsman has driven it through mid on. One run added to the total.
44.2AAli to EMorgan
FOUR! This is powered away! A short ball wide outside off, slashed so hard that deep cover has no chance this time. All the way to the fence.
44.1AAli to EMorgan
Shorter one outside off, punched away to the left of deep cover for a couple by Morgan.
Asif Ali comes on.
43.6SAfridi to MAli
Low full toss on off, driven back to mid off. Shaheen ends a really bad day with figures of 10-0-83-0!
43.5SAfridi to MAli
SIX! Deep into the crowd again! A short length ball on middle, Moeen swings this over deep square leg. Huge! The 350 comes up for the hosts. 9 needed now.
43.4SAfridi to EMorgan
Full toss on the pads, Morgan did not expect that and manages to just push it towards deep square leg for a run.
43.3SAfridi to MAli
Yorker outside off, jammed away to deep backward point for a single by Ali. 9 runs off the first 3 balls of this over.
43.2SAfridi to MAli
FOUR! Two in two! A length ball outside off, Moeen just stands and tonks this one over mid off with ease. The ball ends up crossing the rope on a bounce.
43.1SAfridi to MAli
FOUR! Outside off, Moeen slashes at it. The ball flies through backward point for a boundary. No chance for deep point to come around.
42.6FAshraf to EMorgan
Driven towards mid off by the skipper.
42.5FAshraf to EMorgan
SIX! There is number 14 of this England innings. A short length ball on middle and leg, Morgan lets this one fly. He pulls it with power over deep square leg and into the stands. This is merry-making by the English batsmen. Every single one who has batted has hit a six today.
42.4FAshraf to EMorgan
Back of a length on top of leg, Morgan defends this back towards the bowler.
42.3FAshraf to EMorgan
Nicely driven wide of deep cover for a couple of runs.
42.2FAshraf to EMorgan
Skids on! A length ball on the pads, Morgan tries to work it on the leg side but misses. The ball goes onto the thigh pad and back on the surface.
42.1FAshraf to MAli
Back of a length on middle, dabbed towards mid-wicket by Ali for a single.
41.6SAfridi to EMorgan
Low full toss on off, driven back to mid off by Morgan. That pinged off the bat but unfortunately for the batsman, goes straight to the fielder.
41.5SAfridi to EMorgan
Outside off on a length, left alone by Eoin Morgan.
41.4SAfridi to MAli
Slashed away to deep backward point by Moeen to bring his skipper on strike for the first time.
41.3SAfridi to MAli
Play and a miss! Outside off on a length, Ali looks to cut but misses the ball. It goes to the keeper.
Eoin Morgan walks in next.
41.2SAfridi to MAli
OUT! An unfortunate run out for Ben Stokes. Fuller length ball on off, Moeen absolutely drills it back towards the bowler. It deflects off Afridi's left leg to the stumps and Stokes is found strolling out of his crease. Ben knows that and starts to walk to the pavilion. He has a wry smile on his face and also gives thumbs up to his partner. Mere formality left in this match.
41.1SAfridi to BenStokes
NOT OUT! Yes, the impact is outside off! Stokes survives and Pakistan lose their review. A full toss outside off, Stokes looks to paddle this over fine leg by shuffling across the stumps but misses the ball. He gets hit on the pads. There is an appeal which is turned down by the umpire. Sarfaraz takes a review, maybe in desperation. The replays show that the impact of the ball is outside off and hence the umpire can remain with his original decision!
Review time! An LBW appeal against Stokes has been turned down. Ben looked to ramp this full toss but missed it and got hit on the pads. Looked like it was outside off, the impact though!
Shaheen Afridi comes back on.
40.7FAshraf to MAli
Excellent running! A length ball on middle, Moeen taps the ball towards mid-wicket and the batsmen come back for an easy couple. The fielders seem really tired!
40.6FAshraf to MAli
Short of a length on middle, Ali looks to pull this and gets hit on his body again, on the thighs now.
40.5FAshraf to MAli
Ouch! That would have hurt. A short ball on the body of the batsman, Ali looks to pull this away but misses and gets hit on the rib area. Dot ball.
40.4FAshraf to BenStokes
Back of a length again as Stokes makes room. The ball is patted with soft hands towards the off side and a quick single is picked up.
40.3FAshraf to BenStokes
Back of a length outside off, punched towards mid off by Stokes.
40.2FAshraf to BenStokes
SIX! The Free Hit has been hit for six. A length ball on middle and leg, Stokes brings out the pick up shot and smashes it over deep mid-wicket. That went high so it just goes a little over the rope. 39 needed now in 59.
Free Hit coming up...
40.1FAshraf to MAli
No ball! A front foot no ball. Short of a length on middle, pulled away by Ali to deep mid-wicket for a single. Stokes to face the Free Hit ball.
The last ten overs will be Powerplay 3. Five fielders can be outside the circle. England need just 47 off 60 balls. Faheem Ashraf comes back on, meanwhile!
39.6JKhan to BenStokes
Good length ball outside off, Stokes tries to push it through the line but it takes the outside half of his blade and runs through the gap between short third man and backward point. The fielder from the former position puts in a slide to stop the ball but fumbles while picking it up, thereby making the second run easy.
39.5JKhan to BenStokes
Too full and on off, driven to mid off.
39.4JKhan to MAli
Searches for a yorker on off, Moeen digs it out to covers and crosses.
