The England and Wales Cricket Board [ECB] has announced a 16-man squad for the upcoming three-match One-day International series against Pakistan.

The squad boasts of the same names that are currently locking horns with Sri Lanka in the ODI series.

Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow will spearhead the opening pair followed by the in-form Joe Root at No.3 and skipper Eoin Morgan at No.4.

Sam Billings features as the first-choice wicketkeeper-batsman while the likes of Liam Livingstone, Sam Curran, and Moeen will bolster the lower middle-order.

Tom Curran retains his place in the squad as does Sussex’s George Carten while Adil Rashid and Liam Dawson make up for the spin-bowling department.

As far as the fast-bowling unit is concerned, David Willey, Mark Wood and Chris Woakes have retained their respective places.

Somerset’s Tom Banton will remain in the squad after joining the English contingent for the third and final ODI against Sri Lanka in Bristol.

The ODI series between England and Pakistan will kickstart on July 08 at Sophia Gardens in Cardiff. The second and third ODI will take place at Lord’s and Edgbaston on July 10 and 13 respectively.

The ODI rubber will be followed by a three-match T20Is series which will start at Trent Bridge, Nottingham from July 16 onwards.

England will name their T20I squad later this month.
