James Anderson produced figures of 3-26 from ten overs as Pakistan were bowled out for 241 in the first innings of the third one-day international at the Oval on Friday.

Anderson conceded just one boundary in his stint and dismissed Mohammad Hafeez in his first over before adding the wickets of Mohammad Yousuf and Saeed Ajmal.

Tim Bresnan also took three wickets wrapping up the innings when he bowled Umar Gul in the last over.

Fawad Alam top-scored with 64 and Asad Shafiq made 40 but Pakistan could not accelerate significantly towards the end of their innings apart from a brief flurry from Abdul Razzaq (31).

Alam faced 86 balls as he set about rebuilding the innings after Pakistan lost two wickets in the first three overs and were 31-3 by the tenth.

England are 2-0 ahead in the five-match series.
