Pakistan would look for a consolation win in the fifth and final ODI against England at Headingley on Sunday.
Jason Roy is having a phenomenal 2019. This year, Joy is averaging 97.25 in ODIs. The only player with a better batting average since the start of 2019 is Jos Buttler (107).
Plus, Jason Roy has notched fourth consecutive fifty against Pakistan. In 12 ODI outings against PAK, Roy has went past 50-run mark on seven occasions.
Joe Root has been in the shadows of Bairstow and Roy of late. However, his record at the venue is exemplary, with scores of 88*, 107, 11 and 92 (recent first) in the last four ODI outings.
Head-to-head (last five ODIs)

Pitch conditions and venue stats – The average first-innings ODI score at the venue is 295. Expect another belter and pack your fantasy team with batsmen.
