Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes could be selected to face Pakistan in England’s test series against the visitors on the 14th July.
If selected, Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes would take up the role of leading batmen in the team chosen to face Pakistan.
Head Coach Trevor Bayliss has said that the pair could be what’s needed if England are to succeed in the test series.
Jos Buttler has made an impression on his coach following a Stirling performance in England’s T20 against Sri Lanka this week.
Stokes, who is referred to as an all-rounder for England, can’t be pitched to bowl for the squad due to the condition of his knee following surgery. His health hasn’t had the same impact on his batting however, as he has still been able to perform well with a bat for his county team Durham.
Bayliss has stated that the pair needs to be considered because of their recent performances. They certainly won’t be overlooked at this time. He has also said the selection meeting for this test series will be an interesting one as officials also consider the likes of Joe Root and James Vince for top order batsmen.
England is set to play four tests against Pakistan followed by five one day internationals and a T20 match. The first test starts next week at Lords Cricket ground.
Given their recent performances against Sri Lanka, England is expected to do well against Pakistan. VIP will follow the squad as they embark on this next chapter in a very exciting season. You could enjoy top class cricket action with us by choosing to indulge in one of our hospitality packages.
