England end WC with win over Pakistan

ICC Men's Cricket World Cup, Kolkata:
England 337-9 (50 overs): Stokes 84 (76), Root 60 (72)
Pakistan 244 (43.3 overs): Salman 51 (45); Willey 3-56
England won by 93 runs

Current champions England ended their dismal World Cup campaign with a 93-run victory over Pakistan on Saturday, denying the 1992 champions the miracle they needed to make it to the last four of the showpiece 50-overs tournament.

England ended their World Cup campaign with a commanding consolation victory over Pakistan in Kolkata on Saturday (Nov 11).

With their hopes of reaching the semi-finals long gone, the defending champions put in their best performance with the bat throughout their time in India by scoring 337-9.

Ben Stokes top-scored again with 84, sharing a stand of 132 in 131 balls with Joe Root, who made 60.

Openers Jonny Bairstow and Dawid Malan scored 59 and 31 respectively, while Jos Buttler's 27 and Harry Brook's 30 also boosted the score.

David Willey struck with the second ball of Pakistan's chase and two further wickets took him to 100 one-day international wickets in his last game before international retirement.

Pakistan began the day with the most unlikely hope of a semi-final spot but England's impressive total meant they had to complete their chase in 6.4 overs to overhaul New Zealand's net run-rate.

They were bowled out for 244 without seriously threatening to pull off a tournament-ending win as England completed a 93-run win.

England finish the group stage in seventh to qualify for the Champions Trophy in 2025, with Pakistan, who host that tournament, finishing fifth.

England had been expected to contest next week's semi-finals but will instead next be in action in December for a white-ball tour of West Indies. After their disappointing World Cup it is unclear how many of this squad will be moved on.

The Test side returns to India for a five-match series in January.
