Eoin Morgan's unbeaten century for England ensured Pakistan ended its controversial tour on a low as the hosts won by 121 runs Wednesday at The Rose Bowl in the fifth and deciding one-day international.

Pakistan, seeking consolation from a trip that will be best remembered for corruption allegations, was bowled out under the lights for 135 in 37 overs, chasing 257 for victory, to lose the series 3-2. Pakistan also lost the test series 3-1 and the T20 series 2-0.

Pakistan crashed from 63 without loss to 104-6 and failed to recover thereafter Morgan earlier scored an unbeaten 107. This was his second ton on the ground Shoaib Akhtar impressed with 3-40. The result brings to an end a troubled tour for Pakistan. England won the first two games before Pakistan drew level through wins at The Oval and Lord’s.
