Nottingham - England captain Eoin Morgan won the toss and elected to bat against Pakistan in the third one-day international at Trent Bridge on Tuesday.

England were unchanged from the side that won the second ODI at Lord's by four wickets as they sought a win in this day/night fixture that would put them an unbeatable 3-0 up in the five-match series.

Pakistan made one change, with Mohammad Nawaz replacing fellow left-arm spin-bowling all-rounder Imad Wasim, who suffered a knee injury while making an unbeaten 63 at Lord's.
