England's batsmen showed they are in prime form ahead of the Cricket World Cup by chasing down a target of 359 with 5.1 overs to spare to beat Pakistan in the third One Day International between the teams Tuesday.
Jonny Bairstow struck a 93-ball 128 and had a 176-run partnership for the first wicket with Jason Roy (76), providing the platform for a comfortable six-wicket win in Bristol as England reached 359-4 for their second-highest run chase.
The English, who host the World Cup starting May 30, rested Jos Buttler and Adil Rashid, while paceman Jofra Archer — looking to stake a claim for a place in the World Cup squad — didn't start for the second straight game.
Pakistan, which lost the second ODI by 12 runs after the first match was rained off, made 358-9 mainly thanks to Imam-ul-Haq's 151 off 131 balls. Asif Ali (51) was the other player to make a half-century.
