Most ODI matches for England

Morgan, 32, is already England’s all-time leading run-getter in ODIs with 6140 at 39.87. His 11 ODI hundreds place him at third behind team-mate Joe Root (14) and Marcus Trescothick (12) and under his captaincy post the 2015 ICC World Cup, England have soared to No 1 in the ODI rankings.

Collingwood played the last of his 197 ODIs in 2011, and when he retired from the format he was England’s leading run-getter with 5092 at an average of 35.36.

He is the only England captain to win an ICC limited-overs trophy.

England lead the series 2-0 over Pakistan.
