England Team News
England after winning the first test in a dramatic and glorious way would be eyeing to win the series in this match itself although they have faced a massive setback in the absence of Ben Stokes. The premium all-rounder has flown back to his home in New Zealand for some family reasons. He would be replaced by Zak Crawley who will bat at 3.
Fast bowling department may see one change after captain Root confirmed that Anderson won’t be rested for this game despite his poor returns in the first Test. Anderson had picked only one wicket at Manchester. Mark Wood, who hasn’t played any match since the first test against West Indies which ended a month ago, is in line to replace Jofra Archer while the rest of the team is likely to be same.
Players to pick from England
Stuart Broad, James Anderson, Jos Buttler, Joe Root, Rory Burns, Dominic Sibley, Ollie Pope, Chris Woakes, Sam Curran
Pakistan Team News
Pakistan’s loss in the first Test was unexpected given the fact that they had a solid 107 runs lead in the first inning and they had restricted England to 5 for 117 defending 277. No one saw this coming but this is the beauty of Test cricket. They’d take confidence from their display in the game for the major part of the Test and it took a brilliant partnership between Woakes and Buttler and some of their own mistakes for them to finish number two in the first Test.
As far as the team combination is concerned, leg spinning all rounder Shadab Khan was under used by Azhar Ali and they may want to bring a batsman in the form of Fawad Alam who would be able to contribute more and add more strength to the team. The pace bowling department is likely to be same.
Players to pick from Pakistan
Babar Azam, Shan Masood, Shaheen Afridi, Yasir Shah, Naseem Shah, Azhar Ali

ENG vs PAK Pitch Report
Given that the pitch has been under the sun since the first Test against West Indies this summer, it is likely to be on the drier side and that would mean it could assist some reverse swing and spin but the forecast is not very good on Day 2 and day 3 and light rain is expected. In case of rain, the pitch will get dampen and chances of reverse swing will get nullified. However, you are expected to fill your side with some fast bowlers for this Test.
