Livingstone in Test side for Pakistan tour

London: Liam Livingstone, Will Jacks and Keaton Jennings have been named in the England squad for the three-Test series in Pakistan in December.

Seamer Stuart Broad will miss the tour, with the birth of his first child due in November.

There is no place for opener Alex Lees, who has played England's past 10 Tests but missed out on a central contract.

Pace bowler Mark Wood is in line to play his first Test since March after missing the home summer through injury.

England squad for Test series in Pakistan:
Ben Stokes, James Anderson, Harry Brook, Zak Crawley, Ben Duckett, Ben Foakes, Will Jacks, Keaton Jennings, Jack Leach, Liam Livingstone, Jamie Overton, Ollie Pope, Ollie Robinson, Joe Root, Mark Wood.

Surrey's Jacks, 23, and England white-ball regular Livingstone, 29, are both uncapped at Test level.

Both spin-bowling all-rounders, they will likely compete for one spot in the Test side to support Jack Leach, the only specialist spinner in the squad.

England were left short of spin options when Moeen Ali opted not to take part in the tour, while leg-spinner Matt Parkinson, who made his Test debut as a concussion sub at the beginning of the summer, has fallen out of favour.
