ENG vs PAK T20I series: No Test players included as England names 14-member squad

England’s T20I side which will be led by Eoin Morgan features a fresh look as the selectors have opted against picking those who are currently engaged in the Test series as part of workload management.

No players who are currently in the bubble at the Ageas Bowl for the Test squad has been included, with the three matches to be played at Emirates Old Trafford under this season’s usual bio-secure, behind closed doors conditions.

In addition to Morgan, the other experienced members include Jonny Bairstow, Moeen Ali, Adil Rashid, Jason Roy, David Willey and Chris Jordan among others. The Lions have also named Pat Brown, Liam Livingstone and Reece Topley as reserves.

While there aren’t any uncapped players in the squad, the likes of Tom Banton, Joe Denly, Saqib Mahmood and Lewis Gregory, who have played only a handful of T20I matches, will get an opportunity to make a mark.

The first match begins on 28 August, three days after the fifth day of the final Test. All three T20Is will be played at Old Trafford between 28 August and 1 September.
