England Playing XI: ENG vs PAK 1st ODI: The first of three ODIs between England and Pakistan will be played at Sophia Gardens in Cardiff on Thursday, July 08. Having being forced to name a completely new squad after the first-choice squad had to go into self-isolation due to three players and four backroom staff testing positive for Covid-19 just two days before the first fixture in Cardiff, England have called up nine uncapped players including Zak Crawley, Will Jacks, and Brydon Carse. The majority of the squad have been on England tours or on standby as reserves over the last year but lack the international exposure which makes it tough for the skipper Ben Stokes to take a call on the final XI.

England Playing XI: ENG vs PAK 1st ODI: The 18-man newly named England squad features six players who are uncapped for England in any format – Brydon Carse, Tom Helm, Will Jacks, David Payne, Phil Salt, and John Simpson. Aside from skipper Ben Stokes, who has featured in 98 ODIs for England, the next most-experienced player in the squad is the right-arm pacer Jake Ball, however, he last played for England in 2018.
