England are chasing the series after losing to Pakistan at Lords, so what changes will they make for the second Test? Ahead of the action - which gets underway from 10am on Sky Sports 2 on Friday - we checked in with our pundits and asked them to pick their XIs.England could make at least two changes, with James Anderson and Ben Stokes both proving their fitness in the County Championship. Lancashire director of cricket Ashley Giles says James Anderson is raring to go for Englands second Test It follows reports that Englands head coach Trevor Bayliss was unhappy with the decision to leave Anderson out of the squad for the first Test. Bearing in mind that no-one as yet has looked at the pitch - and assuming Anderson and Stokes are fit - here are the Sky Sports pundits selections...Nasser Hussains XI: Cook, Hales, Root, Vince, Ballance, Bairstow, Stokes, Moeen Ali, Woakes, Broad, Anderson.Nas says: Steven Finn and Jake Ball go out, with James Anderson and Ben Stokes back. Id have Adil Rashid in the squad just in case its a raging bunsen, which it can be at Old Trafford. Moeen Ali is bowled for a second-ball duck by Yasir Shah Moeen Alis place is under the greatest threat but it would be a little harsh to leave him out after getting 150 two Tests ago. You have to decide who is your best spinner in the conditions, factoring in the rough created outside off-stump by Pakistans left-armers.David Lloyds XI: Cook, Hales, Root, Vince, Ballance, Bairstow, Stokes, Woakes, Rashid, Broad, Anderson.Bumble says: Anderson is a very, very experienced player and if he says hes fit, Id go with him - I think hes sensible enough to say I dont think I can get through or Ill be fine, so hes in along with Stokes. Theyre a given, and Ball and Finn have to give way. Jake Ball could be out after just one Test England need a spinner to take the ball away from right-handers, so Id go with Rashid over Moeen. I say that having not seen the pitch, though, so England could decide to play two spinners.Bob Willis XI: Cook, Hales, Root, Bell, Ballance, Bairstow, Stokes, Rashid, Woakes, Broad, Anderson.Bob says: Weve got too many players - Hales, Vince, Stokes, Ali, Broad - who bat like they are millionaires and Roots joined the club recently, so we need a level head in there and someone who can play spin, because Yasir Shah is probably the best leg-spinner since Shane Warne and hes going to be the key to this series. Ian Bell hits out against Yorkshire in Dubai England have got to find a way to play against him and I dont believe - out of the other batsmen that Ive seen - that anybody is as well-equipped as Bell to do that job. I would have picked him but the selectors havent gone down that road - its safety first, and Anderson and Stokes will come in for Finn and Ball.Rob Keys XI: Cook, Hales, Root, Vince, Ballance, Stokes, Bairstow, Moeen Ali, Woakes, Broad, Anderson.Rob says: Anderson comes back in if he says hes fit, youve got to go with him. Woakes has been outstanding for the last few Tests, and took 11 wickets at Lords, so he has to keep his place - that means its a pretty easy conversation to have with both Finn and Ball, although its unfortunate for them. Should Ben Stokes go back up to six in the batting order? They could have brought Stokes in for a batsman and played an extra bowler, but now theyve gone with Vince and Ballance, theyve got to give them a good run of games. I would put Stokes back in at six though, despite Bairstow playing well there - the more responsibility Stokes has had in the past, the more return England have got.Nick Knights XI: Cook, Hales, Root, Vince, Ballance, Stokes, Bairstow, Moeen Ali, Woakes, Broad, Anderson.Ive got Stokes and Anderson coming back in for Ball and Finn. Now theyve got some game time behind them with their counties, they naturally demand a place in the team. Will Moeen Ali keep his spot as Englands spinner? Id stick with Moeen as the spinner over Rashid. With Pakistans left-armers creating rough, I would want that off-spin option.Watch day one of the second Test between England and Pakistan live on Sky Sports 2 from 10am on Friday.

. Parnell will be out much longer if it turns out he needs surgery. But first, he will try resting for two weeks before beginning a throwing program that could last up to a month, general manager Sandy Alderson said.ANAHEIM, Calif. - While the Los Angeles Angels spend this weekend preparing for October, the Rangers are already thinking ahead to 2015. Late in a lost season, Texas interim manager Tim Bogar is thrilled to see his players getting good work done for the future. Ryan Rua had four hits, Jake Smolinski homered and the Rangers beat the playoff-bound Angels 12-3 Friday night for their seventh straight victory. Adrian Beltre had a two-run single and Lisalverto Bonilla pitched five solid innings for the Rangers, who still have the majors worst record at 61-92 after their longest winning streak of the year. Texas pounded out 15 hits and mostly shut down the big leagues most productive offence. "Everything we do now builds toward next year," said Bogar, whos making a strong case for the full-time job. "We dont know whos going to be on this team. We hope all our injured guys are going to be back, and some of these guys are going to have to fight for spots. ... (But) theyre excited about being out here. Theyre having fun." Texas took a 10-0 lead in the fifth inning on the major league-leading Angels, who have lost two straight since clinching the AL West title on Wednesday with their 12th win in 14 games. "Theres still a preview for next year to be shown," said Daniel Robertson, who drove in two runs. "Weve got to give fans a reason to be excited about next year." Los Angeles lead over Baltimore for home-field advantage throughout the playoffs stayed at 2 1/2 games with the Orioles 5-3 loss to Boston. Brennan Boesch hit a two-run homer for the Angels, who went back to a normal lineup for the first six innings against Texas after resting their regular position players Thursday. But Hector Santiago couldnt record an out in the second inning of a disastrous sttart, and the Angels didnt manage a hit until David Freeses double leading off the fifth.dddddddddddd Bonilla (2-0) yielded two hits and four walks in his second major league start for the Rangers, who beat Los Angeles for just the second time in 14 games. Santiago (5-9) has seriously hurt his case for a spot in the Angels playoff rotation with consecutive horrible starts during this homestand. After he failed to get an out in the third inning of a loss to Houston last Sunday, the left-hander couldnt get an out in the second inning against the lowly Rangers. "Hector has definitely showed what he can do when hes on," Scioscia said. "I think he has to get back and just exhale. Hes had a couple of rough ones, obviously, but his arm is good. His stuff is good." After Smolinskis second homer highlighted a three-run first inning, four straight Rangers singled in the second to chase Santiago. Leonys Martin outran Mike Trouts throw to the plate on Elvis Andrus sacrifice fly to put Texas up 7-0. "Ill be fresh for the next one, thats for sure," Santiago said. Trout went 0 for 3 with two strikeouts, taking sole possession of the AL lead with 175 strikeouts in whats likely to be his first MVP season. FRESH START? Santiago responded to another poor outing by shaving his head and most of his beard. "Just clean it off, get all the bad effects out," he said. TRAINERS ROOM Angels: Josh Hamilton sat out for the 14th time in 15 games with pain in his upper body, but manager Mike Scioscia is optimistic his $125 million cleanup hitter can return for the playoffs. UP NEXT After two extra days of rest, Angels ace Jered Weaver (17-8, 3.50) is lined up to start the AL division series opener on Oct. 2. Hell take on Colby Lewis (10-13, 5.12).
