With a 1-0 lead in the series, England will come into the contest to maintain the streak and deny Pakistan a chance to level terms. The England selectors have named a 14-member squad in a bid to keep the ambitions going when the teams lock horns in the upcoming series decider in Southampton starting on August 21, Friday.
If England can succeed to maintain the series scoreline, the three Lions would maintain their unbeaten streak over the Men in Green stretching over a decade.

The hosts are currently 1-0 up in the three-match campaign after a three-wicket win in the first Test at Old Trafford, a match where Pakistan were on top until the closing stages. It was followed by a draw in a second Test at Southampton where neither side had a chance of victory in a match blighted by bad weather.
