England suffered their first defeat of the 2019 Cricket World Cup on Monday, as the hosts were beaten by 14 runs by Pakistan in a thrilling match at Trent Bridge.

Pakistan were sent in to bat and set the tournament favourites a daunting target, reaching 348-8 from their 50 overs.

That left England facing the highest run chase in World Cup history to win. 

However, the hosts lost early wickets and could not deny a rejuvenated Pakistan side who secured a surprise victory.

Monday Recap

Pakistan set England a tough target of 349 for victory, as the tournament hosts were made to pay for some sloppy work in the field.

Jason Roy dropped Mohammad Hafeez when he was on just 14, and the 38-year-old went on to make 84 before being caught by Chris Woakes.

Sports journalist Azeem Siddiqui noted it was a bad day for Roy:

Azeem Siddiqui @aze3msiddiqui

Pakistan's best player today, and that too by a margin, is Jason Roy. Dropped Hafeez when he was on 16 ✅ Remained sloppy in the field ✅ Used up England's only review ✅ #CWC19 #ENGvPAK

Woakes did go on to equal a World Cup record with his four catches:

Chris Woakes' four catches today means that he's equalled the record for the most catches taken by an outfielder in a #CWC match. https://t.co/7uhJlLTfI7

Yet he was one of several disappointing bowlers for England who struggled to take wickets. Neither Adil Rashid nor Jofra Archer managed a single wicket in 15 overs between them.

England were left needing to produce something special with the bat but saw Roy depart in just the third over for LBW to Shadab Khan. Roy then compounded matters by wasting England's only review querying the decision.

The hosts then had a let-off when Joe Root was dropped by Babar Azam. Root made the most of his reprieve and went on to record the first century of the tournament: 

Lord's Cricket Ground 🏏 @HomeOfCricket

💯 The first century of this year's @cricketworldcup goes to Joe Root. A superb innings, @root66 👏 #CWC19 https://t.co/aUaRbvQ0cB

The 28-year-old ultimately managed 107 before being caught by Mohammad Hafeez at short third man off Shadab Khan.

England's hopes were further boosted by Jos Buttler hitting the second century of the World Cup. He managed 100 off 75 balls before succumbing to the pace of Mohammad Amir:

Test Match Special @bbctms

WICKET! Oh no! The ball after going to his 100 Buttler is out. He hits Mohammad Amir straight to Wahab Riaz who takes the catch. Gone for 103, England 288-6. Live: https://t.co/aqFv7maM6d #CWC19 #bbccricket https://t.co/HZSzkUhd64

Buttler's departure was a big boost for Pakistan, and they went on to complete a deserved win with some fine late bowling. 

Wahab Riaz accounted for Woakes and Moeen Ali in successive deliveries and then capped a brilliant display by catching Archer off Mohammad Amir to end England's hopes of a second win at the World Cup.
