England Beats Pakistan by 24 Runs in First One-Day Cricket Match

Sept. 10 (Bloomberg) -- England defeated Pakistan by 24 runs in their rain-shortened one-day cricket match in Chester-le-Street, England, to take a 1-0 lead in the five-game series.

Pakistan could only reach 250-9 in response to England’s 274-6 in a match that was cut to 41 overs by a rain delay. Kamran Akmal reached 53 before being caught by Stuart Broad off the bowling of Graeme Swann, who took two wickets as did James Anderson, Tim Bresnan and Michael Yardy.

England’s opening pair of Steve Davies and Andrew Strauss combined for 78 runs. Davies was out for 87 runs, and Jonathan Trott reached 69. Saeed Ajmal took four wickets for the visitors. The meeting in Durham is the first in the five-match series.
