Pakistan Thursday replaced opener Saim Ayub with Usman Khan while Imad Wasim was rested due to medical reasons paving the way for Naseem Shah’s return in the last T20 against England at The Oval in London.

England captain Jos Butler won the toss and elected to field first. Buttler said there is "a little bit of green grass, a little bit of weather around" and his side are looking to chase.

Mark Wood replaced Recce Topley in England’s playing XI.

Babar Azam said he would have bowled, too.

Pakistan "batted well in patches" in the second game, but they are looking to improve. Two changes for the tourists, Usman Khan and Naseem Shah in for Saim Ayub and Imad Wasim

Imad has been advised to take rest and will not participate in the fourth T20I against England.

While batting in the nets during Wednesday's training session, he experienced discomfort in his right rib cage. He was sent for a preventative scan as advised by the PCB medical panel.

Keeping the ICC T20 World Cup 2024 in mind Imad will take ample rest and is expected to be fit before the start of Pakistan's campaign.

The panel is actively monitoring Imad's progress and will provide further updates if deemed necessary.

Squads:

England: 1 Phil Salt, 2 Jos Buttler (capt/wk), 3 Will Jacks, 4 Jonny Bairstow, 5 Harry Brook, 6 Moeen Ali, 7 Liam Livingstone, 8 Chris Jordan, 9 Jofra Archer, 10 Adil Rashid, 11 Mark Wood

Pakistan: 1 Mohammad Rizwan, 2 Babar Azam (capt), 3 Usman Khan, 4 Fakhar Zaman, 5 Shadab Khan, 6 Azam Khan (wk), 7 Iftikhar Ahmed, 8 Shaheen Afridi, 9 Haris Rauf, 10 Mohammad Amir, 11 Naseem Shah
