Mark Wood hopes he and fellow paceman Jofra Archer can "ruffle a few feathers" together as England prepare to field one of the quickest new-ball pairings in their one-day history.

Wood will make his first competitive appearance in over two months in Friday's fourth one-day international against Pakistan, finally deemed ready for action after familiar concerns over his left ankle.

The 29-year-old has been kept on the shelf ever since a transformational tour of the West Indies, during which he hit fierce speeds touching 95mph.

Newcomer Archer has consistently topped the 90mph barrier since his arrival in England colours earlier this month and the duo are set to take the field together at Trent Bridge.

"It'll be good to have two pace lads in at the same time and see if we can really ruffle a few feathers," said the Durham quick.

"He's just so natural the way he runs in, just lets it fly. I couldn't believe how far Jos (Buttler, wicketkeeper) was stood back to him at the Oval.

"I have to put every ounce of effort I've got to bowl fast and he seems to do it easily, which is a bit frustrating. It's going to be exciting when I get a go at the other end, they'll probably think I'm bowling 70mph or something."
