However, before the T20 World Cup, the same squad will travel to Pakistan for a 7-match T20 series, starting September 20.
The biggest disappointment for England will be Jofra Archer’s absence. The fast bowler has missed over one year of action due to an elbow injury and later a back injury. While he was tipped to return for T20 World Cup, his recovery isn’t promising. Hence, he has been ruled out.
