All-rounder Moeen Ali, whose family originates from Pakistan, takes on the role of captain for the tourists in place of Jos Buttler, who is set to miss the early stages of the tour with a calf injury.
The absence of key batsman Jonny Bairstow, who is also set to miss the T20 World Cup after breaking his leg in a freak golfing accident, presents an opportunity for the previously exiled Alex Hales who is recalled to the England setup after superb white ball showings for Notts Outlaws and Trent Rockets.
Pakistan will meanwhile be without the long-term injured batsman Fakhar Zaman and fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi. Follow our guide for all the details you need to find a reliable Pakistan vs England live stream now and watch the 2nd T20 international online from wherever you are.
