England are expected to welcome back Jofra Archer for their third ODI against Pakistan on Tuesday in Bristol.

Archer was left out of the side who overcame the tourists at Southampton on Saturday but is likely to be back in for the third match of the series after the 12-run win at the weekend.

Liam Plunkett and David Willey led the line for England on Saturday in a pitch that offered next to nothing for bowlers and both picked up a couple of wickets each.

Archer is set to return on Tuesday and skipper Eoin Morgan says the players are pushing each other for a place in the final World Cup squad.

“I think they are all pushing each other,” said Morgan.

“It’s a bit like our batting unit the last two or three years. Guys have come in and done well.

“And guys will miss out.”
