England unchanged for Pakistan finale

London—England will field an unchanged team for the fourth Test against Pakistan at The Oval, captain Alastair Cook said Wednesday.
The selectors thought about handing a home debut to leg-spinner Adil Rashid but have now stuck with the same XI that won the third Test by 141 runs at Edgbaston on Sunday.
As a result, England’s five-man attack will again feature four seamers and off-break bowler Moeen Ali as the specialist spinner.
England lead the four-match series 2-1 heading into Thursday’s match in south London.
