England Names Squad for Upcoming Pakistan Test

The English team has named an unchanged 14-man squad and four reserve players for their upcoming Test series against Pakistan. 

After winning their Test matches against the West Indies, England is now preparing to face off against Pakistan on another Test series which starts on August 5. With their impressive performance on their former game, the team has decided to retain their members who had led them to victory. 

As per ECB national selector Ed Smith, ‘After three Tests in quick succession against the West Indies, we now turn to an equally condensed Test series against Pakistan, with 15 days of Test cricket scheduled in a three-week period. Our 14-man squad is unchanged’. 

‘County cricket now restarts on Saturday 1 August. We want to have sufficient reserves inside the bio-secure Test match "bubble", but we may also want to give opportunities, where possible, for the reserves to play county cricket. As we seek the best balance here, England may make changes to the reserves during the three-match series against Pakistan’, he added. 

For the meantime, the 14-man squad, as well as their four reserve players, are now spending their time with their families after the conclusion of the West Indies series. Then, on August 2, the team will assemble at the Emirates Old Trafford to prepare against Pakistan. 

The Pakistan tour of England will be held on August 5 at the Emirates Old Trafford. So far, the odds of the game are -625 for England and +380 for Pakistan. To see other upcoming match odds, visit Betwala.
