England vs Pakistan: Seniors return as England announce squad for T20I series
England captain Eoin Morgan along with several major players, including the likes of Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler, Jason Roy, Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali, who missed the ODI series, have returned to the England squad for the three-match T20I series against Pakistan. England were forced to announce a relatively inexperienced squad for the ODI series after COVID-19 breached the England camp and infected three players and four management staff, forcing the rest of the contingent into isolation. However, with players returning negative results, England Cricket Board (ECB) have recalled their senior players to face the ‘Men in Green’.
