England named their squad for the upcoming T20I game against Pakistan, to be played at Old Trafford on the 7th of September. Notable inclusions in the squad included all-rounder Ben Stokes and pacer Mark Wood, who makes a return to the shortest format. Stokes didn’t feature in the T20I against Sri Lanka at home and the World T20 final against West Indies remains his last appearance for England in this format.

Flamboyant pacer Tymal Mills, who struck the headlines earlier this year for bowling in excess of 93 miles per hour, was retained after he impressed in his international debut against Sri Lanka. Spinner Liam Dawson was replaced by the ever reliable Moeen Ali, who also marks his return to T20Is.

“It is excellent to see the progress we are making in white ball cricket across both formats. The T20 international against Pakistan will give the squad another opportunity to measure their development,” James Whitaker, the National Selector of the team was quoted saying.

Batting remains the stronger point of England as the opening combination of Alex Hales and Jason Roy continues to be a nightmare for bowlers. The presence of experienced campaigners like Joe Root, Eoin Morgan and Jos Buttler further cements England’s dominance.

“The squad has an exciting feel with exceptional talent throughout. We are delighted to welcome back Ben Stokes and Mark Wood into the squad. Both are world-class players and are an important part of our long-term plans to become the best side in the world,” Whitaker said about Wood and Stokes.

England squad for one-off T20I against Pakistan:

Eoin Morgan (c), Moeen Ali, Sam Billings, Jos Buttler, Alex Hales, Chris Jordan, Tymal Mills, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, David Willey, Mark Wood
