ENG vs PAK T20: After Covid scare, Eoin Morgan returns to lead England against Pakistan in T20 series: England’s limited-overs captain Eoin Morgan will return to captain England Men for the T20I series against Pakistan, starting July 16. However, Ben Stokes, who was appointed the captain for the ODI series after the entire first-team was forced into quarantine, did not find a place in the team.

Eoin Morgan is one of nine players who have been included in the squad after completing the required period of self-isolation following the Royal London Series against Sri Lanka. All of the 16-player squad and support staff have returned negative Covid-19 tests to clear them for the series.

ENG vs PAK T20: Paul Collingwood will oversee the team as head coach with Chris Silverwood to take a break. The three-match series begins at Trent Bridge on Friday 16 July.
