Leeds - England spinners Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali shared five wickets and restricted Pakistan to 247-8 in the fourth one-day international as the tourists' top order continued to struggle on Thursday.

Captain Azhar Ali, who won the toss and opted to bat, hit a patient 80 off 104 balls and all-rounder Imad Wasim provided late impetus with a quick fire unbeaten 57 off 41 deliveries after Pakistan slipped to 180-7 in the 41st over.

Rashid took 3-47 that included the wickets of Azhar and dangerman Sarfraz Ahmed (12), while Moeen, 2-39, didn't concede a boundary in his 10 overs for the wickets of Mohammad Nawaz (13) and Babar Azam (12).

Chris Jordan, one of the three changes made by England after taking an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five-match series with their world record 444-3 in the third match, claimed 2-42.
