Southampton Test, Day 1 : England Bat Against Pakistan

England Captain Joe Root won the toss and elected to bat in the third and final test against Pakistan at Southampton.

England, 1-0 up in the series after a three-wicket win in the first test at Old Trafford was followed by a weather-affected draw at Southampton, recalled fast bowler Jofra Archer in place of left-arm Seamer Sam Curran.

Pakistan, looking to avoid their first series defeat against England in 10 years, were unchanged.
