    England have named an unchanged 14-man squad for the first of their three Tests against Pakistan.

    That match begins on Wednesday August 5th at Old Trafford.

    It comprises the side who beat West Indies in the final Test on Monday – plus Zak Crawley, Sam Curran and Mark Wood.

    The series will again be played in a secure ‘bio-bubble’ without spectators.

    Having been kept inside the ‘bubble’ forthe West Indies series, the England players were permitted a few days at home with their families but must return on Sunday, and will continue to have regular COVID-19 testing.
