England vs Pakistan 1st Test: Dream11 Team Prediction, Playing XI Updates & Fantasy Cricket Tips

Manchester, Aug 4: England will take on Pakistan in the first of three-Test series on Wednesday (August 5) at Old Trafford, Manchester. Hosts would be upbeat with their performance against West Indies as they came from behind and convincingly won the series 2-1. Following their defeat in the opening Test in Southampton, England registered back-to-back wins in the second and third Test, held at Old Trafford.

The Joe Root-led side would be aiming to continue their winning streak in Manchester and secure another 40 points in the ICC Test Championship. The hosts have retained the same squad, which was fielded against the Windies, for the series.

England must be upbeat with the performances of their strike pacers Stuart Broad, Jofra Archer, James Anderson and Chris Woakes against the Caribbean side. They would be looking to continue with the same intensity.

Pakistan, on the other hand, are going to begin their international campaign in the post-coronavirus era with this series. The Azhar Ali-led side would be aiming to start the series on a confident note and put the English under some pressure early on. The tourists would take confidence from the fact that they have performed well in English conditions in the last decade. They too have a quality bowling attack and possess better batsmen in their ranks.

Shan Masood, Azhar Ali, Babar Azam and Asad Shafiq would be key to Pakistan's batting line-up. Shadab Khan, Yasir Shah, Mohammad Abbas, Shaheen Shah Afridi and Naseem Shah could be seen leading the bowling attack for the coach Misbah-ul-Haq's side.
