The 32-year-old mother congratuled the one-time World Cup winners, Pakistan, for maintaining their status of being "unpredictable and inconsistent".

But Buttler and Root both hit towering sixes off Hafeez as England accelerated on a pitch where they had twice set the world record for the highest ODI total.

Their numbers mimic those of Shinwari and Shaheen Afridi, both of whom have been genuine wicket takers for Pakistan during their wins but were unavailable for the game against England. The World Cup is a different game, you have a lot of pressure.
The win against England not only opened the tournament, but, it also helped Pakistan to leapfrog to sixth in the league rankings.
The Men in Green on Monday displayed their best performance by setting up a huge target of 348 runs in the first innings against England in yesterday's match.
