As far as England are involved, they proceed to wait on the fitness of star all-rounder Ben Stokes, who has been scuffling with a quad damage for the last couple of weeks.

Expect England to go forward with a four-pronged tempo assault comprising James Anderson, Stuart Broad, Jofra Archer and Chris Woakes, with Dom Bess being the lone spinner. That clearly can change relying on Stokes’ fitness. Here’s the XI we really feel England will area.

England Probable XI: Dominic Sibley, Rory Burns, Zak Crawley, Joe Root (C), Ben Stokes, Ollie Pope, Jos Buttler (WK), Chris Woakes, Jofra Archer, Stuart Broad, James Anderson
