Host England will be looking to maintain their winning form when they take on Pakistan in the three-match Test series.

Dominic Sibley, Ben Stokes and Rory Burns put in splendid batting performances for England in the recently concluded series against West Indies.

Let’s take a look at the three premier batsmen that can deliver notable scores for England in the Test series against Pakistan.

Dominic Sibley

The 24-year old has proven to be a consistent performer for the side in red-ball cricket. Dominic Sibley once again proved that he can score runs in different conditions. In nine matches played for England, Sibley has accumulated 588 runs at an average of 42.00 with two centuries and two half-centuries to his name.

In the recently concluded series against West Indies, Sibley played exceedingly well and scored 226 runs at an average of 45.20. He will be looking to continue his decent form at the top of the innings for England in the upcoming Test series against Pakistan.

Ben Stokes

Talismanic all-rounder has really turned to world-class performer in the past couple of years. From helping England lift their maiden World Cup title on home soil to his belligerent heroics at Headingly against Australia in the Ashes series, Stokes has delivered incredible batting performances for the side in Test cricket.

Since Jan 2019, Ben Stokes is currently leading run-scorer for the side in Test cricket. In 17 Test matches, Stokes has accumulated 1453 runs at an average of 53.81 with four centuries and six half-centuries to his name.

In the three-match series against West Indies, Stokes delivered superlative performances with the bat. He finished the series as leading run-scorer for England with 363 runs at an average of 90.75 with one century and one half-century to his name.

Given his incredible run-scoring ability, there is no doubt that Stokes will be key for England in the three-match series against Pakistan.

Joe Root

England Captain Joe Root looked good with the bat in the final game of the series against West Indies at Manchester. In the last two matches played against West Indies, Root has accumulated 130 runs in 4 innings at an average of 43.33 with one half-century to his name.

The team management will be hoping that Root can get back to his best with the bat in the upcoming three-match series against England.
