England are missing some of their flamboyant T20 players. They have rested key players, including Ben Stokes, Jonny Bairstow and others who were involved in the fifth Test. But that does not mean, they are a weak side.

With these players missing, Dawid Malan will also feature in the playing XI. Moeen Ali and Liam Livingstone will take control of the game in the middle order. Both the players are known to score quickly. Livingstone is one of the big game changers in world cricket. His batting order could depend on the start England provide as well.

However, they also have depth in the batting order. Sam Curran and Chris Jordan are quality T20 bowlers, who can contribute with the bat too. It will be interesting to see who will England pick as their specialist spinner in the playing XI. They have the option of Phil Salt and Mathew Parkinson, and the former, who was also involved in the West Indies series earlier in the year, looks a safer bet.

Probable Playing XI: Jos Buttler (C and WK), Jason Roy, Dawid Malan, Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, Chris Jordan, Phil Salt, David Willey, Reece Topley, Tymal Mills
