England National Cricket Team fast pacer Mark Wood has been included in the playing XI for the second Test as a replacement for the all-rounder Liam Livingstone.

Liam Livingstone made his Test debut in the first Test match of the series at Rawalpindi. He did not participate in the game after Day 2 when he injured his knee at the boundary line and has been ruled out of the entire series.

Meanwhile, fast pacer Mark Wood replacing Livingstone in the XI is the only change from the team that won the first Test, meaning there is no place for Ben Foakes, who missed the first game due to illness.
