James Anderson, Ben Stokes and Adil Rashid have been named in an expanded 14-man England squad for the second Test against Pakistan at Old Trafford. Cheap Air Max White Store .Anderson and Stokes are included after recovering from injury, having played against each other in the County Championship match at Southport, but it is the inclusion of Rashid, the legspinner, that is the most intriguing name.Rashid offers England both the possibility of playing two spinners or the option of dropping Moeen Ali, who endured a poor game at Lords and has a bowling average of 92 in seven Tests this year. In seven County Championship matches this season, Rashid has taken 20 wickets at 35.30 and scored 337 runs at 37.44.Rashid played in all three of the Tests between England and Pakistan in the UAE before Christmas. While he bounced back from first-innings figures of 0 for 163 to claim 5 for 64 in his second innings on debut, to take England within sight of victory, he was less successful in the other two games and finished with a bowling average of 69.50 from the series. Fielding two spinners against a side especially proficient at playing spin bowling might prove a risk. Speaking before the squad was confirmed, England coach Trevor Bayliss said: Pakistan have just the one left-hander in their top-order with the ball spinning into the right-handers. Getting the ball spinning the ball away from the bat might make it a little more difficult so Im sure that will be discussedWe want to pick the best spinners we have. Weve had a couple of guys playing over the last 12 months or so who are deemed the best spinners in England. Weve got to make do with what weve got.James Vince, who is averaging 18.66 with the bat after four Tests, is also retained, but there is no place for the Middlesex seamer Toby Roland-Jones, who was called into the Lords squad in the absence of Anderson and Stokes.Anderson bowled 22 overs against Durham, taking 3 for 58, having been ruled out of the first Test after suffering a stress fracture of his right shoulder blade although he had come very close to playing but the majority of the selectors went with the advice of the medical team.Stokes, meanwhile, had bowled more than 25 overs in the match by tea on the third day, his first outing with the ball since undergoing knee surgery after the opening Test against Sri Lanka in May.Steven Finn and Jake Ball have both retained their places although Ball, who made his debut at Lords, reported tightness in his left thigh and will be assessed by the England medical staff. Cheap Air Max Red .

The IOC said he would be in Germany instead for the official state mourning ceremony for former West German President Walter Scheel, who died last month at the age of 97.Whether its anything else, I dont know of anything else, Philip Craven, the head of the International Paralympic Committee, said Wednesday in Rio de Janeiro. You can always weave a trail of intrigue around any situation.The Brazilian newspaper Globo said Bach would be subpoenaed as a witness if he came to Brazil.The IOC cannot comment on a newspaper story nor on the ongoing legal procedure against Mr. Hickey for whom the presumption of innocence prevails, the IOC said in a statement to The Associated Press. For the IOC it goes without saying that it will cooperate on this matter.Its unclear if Bach will go to Brazil for any of the Paralympics, which last until Sept. 18.Hickey went to police headquarters in Rio on Tuesday, but declined to answer additional questions.We ffound enough evidence linking Hickey to this plot to sell tickets by a company that was not authorized, prosecutor Marcos Kac told The Associated Press. Cheap Air Max Womens.

His passport was confiscated, and he must remain in Brazil until the case is concluded.Hickey has temporality stepped aside from all his Olympic roles -- IOC member, IOC executive board representative, Olympic Council of Ireland president, head of the European Olympic Committees and vice president of the Association of National Olympic Committees.Police have said that Hickey plotted with businessmen to transfer tickets illegally from a sports company called Pro 10 to hospitality provider THG Sports, which was a non-authorized vendor and allegedly sold them for very high fees. Police investigators said the scheme was planned to bring in $3 million.The head of THG Sports, Kevin James Mallon, was arrested on Aug. 5 in the case, but was set free, like Hickey. He faces the same charges and must remain in Brazil.The eight other suspects are businessmen with Pro10 and THG Sports who are not in Brazil, including Marcus Evans, who owns THG Sports parent company, as well as English soccer club Ipswich.Investigators have also found evidence linking 35 other National Olympic Committees to the Marcus Evans group.
