England have been forced to select a new team for the Pakistan ODI series after seven persons – including three cricketers – have tested COVID-19 positive, pushing the entire squad into isolation. Three England players and four backroom staff have tested positive for COVID-19, with the rest of the squad deemed close contacts.

Ben Stokes will return to the England side as captain.
