Last Monday, England players have tested positive after series against Sri Lanka and the whole squad was sent into self isolation and due to this critical situation England hired the new squad against Pakistan.
After giving a great performance in the ODI series, Saqib Mahmood have earned his place in T20 squad against Pakistan.
Due to family’s appointment, Coach Chris Silverwood will skip the series and now Paul Collingwood will handled all his duties.
“We have selected a T20 squad that sees the return of many of our most expected players after their period of isolation. Additionally, we have rewarded some of the players involved in the 50 over series win with selection which allows us to manage multi-formats players as we prepare for the much anticipated Test series against India,”Silverwood said.
“It’s been a bit of special time for me. A week ago, no one was talking about me and I wasn’t part of the squad, but obviously everything has happened very quickly,”Mahmood said.
T20 series starts at Trent Bridge on July 16 from 6pm.
