Pakistan served up one of the worst bowling performances in ODI history earlier this week as England blasted a world record total of 444-3 to earn an unassailable 3-0 series victory.

Wahab Riaz ended with the second worst bowling figures in ODI history of 0-110, and Pakistan were comfortably defeated by 169 runs.

However, nothing Riaz or any of the disheartened Pakistani attack did during that game could compare to this shocker from Mohammad Irfan.

Playing in his first match of the series, the giant fast bowler enjoyed a great start to the innings, removing both of England's openers Jason Roy and Alex Hales, who have both been in the runs this series.

Irfan would only complete five of his possible ten overs as he was injured in the middle of his bowling spell, which could help explain this horrific wide, which didn't even hit the wicket.

The left-arm seamer pulled up short of the crease just one delivery after serving up this awful wide, which drew an irate reaction from Pakistan coach Mickey Arthur, that contained many an expletive. 

Even the standing umpire Tim Robinson sported a bemused look on his face as he turned to signal the wide, that had wicketkeeper Sarfaraz Ahmed struggling to take the ball. 

You can see the horrifically wide bowl in the video below.

Irfan not being available to his captain Azhar Ali certainly saw Pakistan struggle towards the back end of the innings as they regretted not having a better sixth bowler.

The skipper himself was forced to come into the attack, and although he was able to run out the eventual man of the match Jonny Bairstow, he went for 27 runs in just three overs.

Eventually, Pakistan fell to a four wicket defeat and are now facing a whitewash at the hands of England as they currently trail 4-0 after four matches.

The fifth and final match of the series takes place this Sunday at Sophia Gardens in Cardiff.
