DUBAI: England win the toss and opt to bat in second Twenty20 International match of the three-match series against Pakistan in Dubai on Friday.
Pakistan have preferred experienced players over young blood as ill Ahmed Shehzad and injured Shoaib Malik have replaced Muhammed Rizwan and Imran Khan.
On the other hand, Jos Buttler of England would for the first time lead England in the T20 match.
England have made four changes to the team that won the first match in the series by 14 runs. As well as Buttler, Joe Root, David Willey and Chris Woakes have also been recalled to the England side, while Eoin Morgan, Reece Topley, Moeen Ali and Chris Jordan have been omitted.
