England needed 62 runs off 61 balls at the end of the 40th over before Jason Holder decided to step in. A decent effort from Joe Root, Eoin Morgan, Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler had almost make a win for England a cake walk but Holder struck twice in two balls sending Jos Buttler and Tom Curran back to pavilion in two successive deliveries. Following that, Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid added 27 runs to the board but Sheldon Cottrell claimed his first five-for in ODIs to snatch the victory from the visitors.
