Cricket: Pakistan beat England in first ODI


Pakistan eased to a six-wicket victory over England in the opening one-day international in Abu Dhabi. England had two batting collapses, falling to 14-3, then losing five wickets for 33 runs after Eoin Morgan and James Taylor had shared a 133-run stand. Having been set a target of 217 to win, Pakistan were looking shaky on 41-3, Reece Topley claiming the three, but Mohammad Hafeez's unbeaten century led the hosts to the win with 38 balls remaining. The second ODI takes place in Abu Dhabi tomorrow, with the third in Sharjah on Tuesday, and the fourth and final one in Dubai three days later.
