Eoin Mor­gan cap­tained his Eng­land team to a thrilling win in their T20 game against Pak­istan, scor­ing 66 runs off 33 balls him­self. He re­mains cap­tain for the three-day se­ries against Aus­tralia be­gin­ning on 4 Septem­ber. Joe Root, cap­tain of the Test team who beat the West Indies, has been left out along with Ben Stokes, whose fa­ther is se­ri­ously ill, and the in­jured Ja­son Roy. The short­ened game is fast-paced, big-hit­ting and of­ten high-scor­ing. The se­ries against Aus­tralia will be shown on the BBC.
