Southampton, Aug 12: With an aim to take an unassailable 2-0 lead, England will take on Pakistan on Thursday (August 13) at Rose Bowl in Southampton. England defeated Pakistan by three wickets in a thrilling way in the first Test at Old Trafford, Manchester.
The hosts would be looking to hit the ground aggressively in the second test match but Pakistan is more than capable of taking the match in its favour for they possess the players in their ranks.
Pakistan have quality batsmen and aggressive bowlers who showed great skills in the first innings of the opening game. England would like to retain the same playing eleven except for their star player Ben Stokes, who has been ruled out for the remainder of the tournament.
Pakistan, on the other hand, would look to make their changes to their side and include experienced Wahab Riaz in place of rookie pacer Naseem Shah. They would be hoping for a better performance from their star batsman Babar Azam. Azar Ali, Abid Ali and Asad Shafiq will have to do perform well in the second Test.
