Toss England chose to bat Pakistan
England have won the toss and, in a deviation from the rest of the series, decided to bat first at Headingley. Eoin Morgan, back from his one-match suspension for slow over rate, said it was an excellent wicket to bat on, and a good opportunity for the batsmen to set a target.
With the series sealed, England have rung the changes, with Jason Roy, Joe Denly, Jofra Archer and Mark Wood all rested, while David Willey and Chris Woakes return to the side.
Pakistan, looking to avoid their 11th defeat in completed ODIs on the trot, were dealt a blow after it emerged Imam-ul-Haq would not be fit to take his place in the XI, giving Abid Ali his first game of the series. Junaid Khan also misses out after a difficult outing in Nottingham, where he went for 85 and found boundary fielding a particular challenge. Shaheen Afridi takes his place.
This ODI is the final match for both teams ahead of the World Cup.
