England loses their last World Cup warm-up match against Pakistan

Pakistan's Misbah scored 91 to clinch the match from England

The warm up matches for the forthcoming ICC World Cup have drawn a great deal of interest both by teams and the fans to make predictions for the actual tournament.

But England seems to be disappointed by their performance as they lost their last warm up match against Pakistan by four wickets today at Sydney, Australia.

England batting first were 250-8 at the end of the 50-overs with Alex Hales (31) and Gary Ballance (57). Pakistan's Leg-spinner Yasir Shah was the pick of Pakistan's bowlers with 3-45 from 10 overs. 

When it came to Pakistan, their captain Misbah played a wonderful innings of 91 runs (not out). He was supported by Akmal (65) and they made up the total 252 for 6 in 48.5 overs.

It may be added that Pakistan has won both of its warm up matches and feel confident to go into the World Cup they won once in 1992 under Imran Khan.
