ODI series preview: Pakistan v England

ODI series preview: Pakistan v England

For Pakistan, they will look to spinner Yasir Shah again, after his efforts in the Tests. He was the leading wicket taker in the series, despite playing only two of the matches, and England struggled against him. They will not be eager to face him with the need to score runs adding to the pressure.

England will look to batsman Joe Root, both for the runs and for a wicket or two. Root is one of the few players that spans across the formats, and his experience and good form will be relied upon here.
