England win toss and batting 1st vs Pakistan in 4th ODI

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) England won the toss and elected to bat first against Pakistan with a chance to clinch the one-day international series in the fourth and final match on Friday.

England, leading the series 2-1, can't lose it, but Pakistan can snatch a draw.

England was unchanged, still the same team which lost the first ODI by six wickets, won the second by 95 runs, and won the third by six wickets.

Pakistan changed two, bringing back Ahmed Shehzad to open for Iftikhar Ahmed, who made his debut in the second ODI, and the fit-again Yasir Shah for Zafar Gohar, who made his debut on Tuesday when Shah was unavailable. Gohar scored 15 and took 2-54.
