Shehzad fell seven runs short of his century when he was run out in the 35th over, but contributions from Sohaib Maqsood (45) and Misbah-ul-Haq (65) pushed Pakistan towards a commanding total.

Shahid Afridi (21*) finished off the innings with 21 from seven balls as Pakistan reached 339-6 from their 50 overs.
