Alastair Cook became the first England captain to score consecutive one-day centuries as he set his side up for a 20-run victory over Pakistan in the second one-day international in Abu Dhabi.

Cook won the toss for the second time in the four-match series, then cashed in with 102, his fourth one-day century, from 118 deliveries in an England total of 250 for four.

Fast bowler Steven Finn then turned in another match-winning performance with four for 34 from 10 overs as Pakistan were dismissed for 230 in 49 overs.

England lead the series 2-nil.
