Sam Curran is missing this time. Topley might be a good change for the team. He is a different type of bowler and his recent form is exceptional.

Reece Topley might replace Chirs Woakes because he looked out of shape in the first match against New Zealand. Or Topley can replace England’s quick, Mark Wood as he was very expensive in the initial match. Harry Brook might be retained as he is a good middle-order batter.
