The England Cricket Board has on Wednesday announced a 9-member squad for the upcoming T20I series against Pakistan as Eoin Morgan is returning to the team.

Eoin Morgan will return to lead England in three-match T20I series against Pakistan following his self-isolation with eight others included in the squad.

“Morgan is one of nine players who have been included in the squad after completing the required period of self-isolation following the Royal London Series against Sri Lanka,” read a post on the ECB’s website.

As per the ECB, the 16-player squad and support staff have returned negative Covid-19 tests.

Paul Collingwood will oversee the team as head coach. The three-match series begins at Trent Bridge on Friday 16 July.
