ENG vs PAK Dream11 Match Information
Match Venue : Old Trafford, Manchester
Match Time : 03:30 PM IST
England Team News
England after starting their cricket season with a loss, came back strongly to beat West Indies in the next two games but the job gets tougher now with the next assignment being Pakistan whom they haven’t beaten in last 10 years which is quite unusual. The last 2 series have ended up in draws and England would love to do much better this time.
England have named an unchanged squad from the last Test against West Indies. As far as the playing 11 is concerned, they will likely bring Zak Crawley at 3 given that Ben Stokes will be fit to bowl again. In that process, they’d have to drop Chris Woakes as Anderson, Broad and Archer seem to be the most likely trio in pace bowling with Dom Bess retaining his place.
Players to pick from England
Jos Buttler, James Anderson, Joe Root, Stuart Broad, Rory Burns, Ben Stokes, Dom Sibley, Jofra Archer
Pakistan Team News
Pakistan have eventually got their England tour on board after many of their players being tested positive for COVID-19. Results suggest that they have been the most successful Asian side in England in the previous decade even though Sri Lanka has managed to win a series in 2014. Pakistan have not lost in their last 4 series against England and that’s surely impressive.
Coach Misbah has confirmed that they will go with 2 leg spinners seeing England’s weakness against spin along with the pitch which was assisting spinners in the last Test. That means Shadab Khan will be batting at 7 and Haris Sohail does not find a place in 11. Pakistan will miss Mohammad Amir who has picked up most wickets in his career in England than any other country.
Players to pick from Pakistan
Azhar Ali, Babar Azam, Asad Shafiq, Mohammad Rizwan, Naseem Shah, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Shadab Khan

ENG vs PAK Pitch Report
The Old trafford pitch did not do too much for fast bowlers at least in the first inning. The average first inning score at this venue is above 420 but as the game progresses, the ball starts turning a bit more which is why Pakistan has decided to play 2 spinners. The forecast is lot clearer for this test although little bit of showers is expected on Day 1. Make sure you maintain a good balance between batsmen and bowlers.
