Dubai, second unoffical ODI: Pakistan A 289-7, England 290-4 - England win by six wickets

Half-centuries from Alex Davies and Sam Hain helped England Lions to a comfortable six-wicket victory over Pakistan A in their second unofficial ODI.

Pakistan A won the first match by 187 runs, much down to a destructive 276-run partnership for the second wicket, but it was England's No.2 and No.3 who came through on this occasion.

A tight performance from an England bowling attack featuring Lancashire's Saqib Mahmood and Sussex's Danny Briggs restricted Pakistan to a gettable total of 289.

Mahmood finished with figures of 3-59, including the all-important wicket of Mohammad Saad who was sitting comfortably on 117, while Briggs took 1-24 off seven overs, going at a miserly rate of 3.42.

The bowling performance was backed up by a consummate run chase from England's batsmen, with contributions coming throughout the order.

All but one of England's wickets were worth at least 50 runs, with Davies and Hain's partnership of 76 for the second wicket being the largest.

Davies, who was awarded the player of the match, top-scored with 76, while Hain was eventually dismissed for 69. Elsewhere, Joe Clarke scored a useful 41, and captain Lewis Gregory saw England home with an aggressive 32 off 22.

The third match of their five-match series will take place on 29 November.
