Eoin Morgan praises 'outstanding' England win over Pakistan

England one-day captain Eoin Morgan says his side were "outstanding" as they beat Pakistan by six wickets in Sharjah to take a 2-1 lead in their four-match series.

Chasing 209, England looked in trouble at 93-4 as they struggled against Pakistan's spinners, but a superb unbroken 117-run stand between Taylor (67 not out) and the under-pressure Jos Buttler (49 not out) led the tourists to a second straight victory. Earlier, Chris Woakes took 4-40 as Pakistan collapsed from 132-2.

England will clinch their first ODI series win in Asia since beating Bangladesh in 2010 if they can avoid defeat in the fourth and final ODI in Dubai on Friday.
