Pakistan to face England in 2nd Test today

Leeds (Agencies): Pakistan will take on England in the second and last test of the two-match series at Headingley cricket ground on Friday.

The Pakistani squad, led by Sarfraz Ahmad, is leading the series with 1-0, after winning the Lord’s Test by nine wickets on last Sunday.

If Pakistan manage to sweep the series, this would be Greens Shirts’ first test series victory in England against England since 1996.

English player Keaton Jennings has replaced Mark Stoneman in England’s squad.

Sarfraz Ahmed has said his team can play even better against England at Headingley than they did in their nine-wicket win at Lord’s.

Pakistan have sprung a minor surprise in a selection, preferring Usman Salahuddin to his fellow uncapped batsman Fakhar Zaman to replace the injured Babar Azam.


Pakistan: Sarfraz Ahmed(c), Azhar Ali, Imam-ul-Haq, Sami Aslam, Haris Sohail, Fakhar Zaman, Saad Ali, Asad Shafiq, Usman Salahuddin, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Amir, Mohammad Abbas, Hasan Ali, Rahat Ali, Faheem Ashraf, Usman Salahuddin or Sami Aslam

England: Joe Root (captain), Alastair Cook, Keaton Jennings, Dawid Malan, Jonny Bairstow (wkt), Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Dom Bess, Mark Wood, Stuart Broad, James Anderson, Chris Woakes, Sam Curran.
