With Roy and Buttler at the top, England have one of the most dangerous opening pairs in world cricket. Moeen Ali showed a glimpse of his return to form with an all-round display. Liam Livingstone has been in brilliant hitting form and will be a big threat to Pakistan’s bowlers. Two legspinners in the side gives England options to choose ahead of the World T20 which is likely to be held in spin-friendly conditions. Saqib Mahmood will look to continue his good wicket-taking form.
