England have named a 14-man squad for the second Test against Pakistan which has led to a perception of uncertainty about their plans. James Anderson and Ben Stokes have recovered from injuries while Adil Rashid has also been included. ESPNcricinfo looks at a few different combinations the selectors could go with as England attempt to level the series.Back to Plan AThis would be the balance of side that England started their Test season with, Stokes returning at No. 6 as one of five bowlers. Chris Woakes stellar season means that he is now a certain starter which forces Steven Finn and Jake Ball out of the side. This also lengthens the batting with Jonny Bairstow and Moeen Ali each slipping back down a place in the order.Alastair Cook, Alex Hales, Joe Root, James Vince, Gary Ballance, Ben Stokes, Jonny Bairstow, Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Stuart Broad, James AndersonEven more bowlingEngland are blessed with their allrounders. So why not make the most of them? There was debate before the first Test whether Stokes could play as a batsman with the consensus that he was good enough, so in this side he replaces one of the middle order - either James Vince or Gary Ballance, the former on this occasion - meaning a quartet of multi-dimensional players from No. 5 to No. 8. Six bowlers (and five quicks, Finn keeping his place ahead of Ball) may seem overloaded, but it would further allow a spread of the workload with two of them, Stokes and Anderson, returning from injury.Alastair Cook, Alex Hales, Joe Root, Gary Ballance, Ben Stokes, Jonny Bairstow, Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Stuart Broad, Steven Finn, James AndersonTwin spinThe last time England played two spinners in a home Test was against Australia, at The Oval, in 2013 when Simon Kerrigan made his debut. They returned to a pair of slow bowlers in the UAE, when Rashid partnered Moeen, and Trevor Bayliss has suggested it could be a route they will follow again at Old Trafford. The Manchester pitch is known to encourage spin - both in terms of turn, but significantly bounce as well - and the recent burst of warm weather could further help create a surface that favours spinners. However, it would be a significant risk and could even play into Pakistans hands: in the UAE they effectively blocked out the quicks and then thrashed the spin, although in this side Stokes is again used at No. 5 so there could be four fast bowlers in the XI.Alastair Cook, Alex Hales, Joe Root, Gary Ballance, Ben Stokes, Jonny Bairstow, Moeen Ali, Adil Rashid, Chris Woakes, Stuart Broad, James AndersonChange of spinnerThis is another spin-related selection, but a straight swap rather than a pairing. Moeen is not being jettisoned purely for that second-innings hoick at Yasir Shah; Pakistans batting order is dominated by right handers so the ball turning away from them, from Rashid, could be more effective than the ball spinning into them from Moeen. Since the start of the year, Moeen is averaging over 90 with the ball so while he continues to have the knack of chipping out wickets (Younis Khan and Misbah-ul-Haq at Lords was a fine pair to remove) he is clearly proving less effective than previously. In this side, the balance is back to five bowlers with Vince and Ballance both retaining places in the middle order.Alastair Cook, Alex Hales, Joe Root, James Vince, Gary Ballance, Ben Stokes, Jonny Bairstow, Adil Rashid, Chris Woakes, Stuart Broad, James Anderson Jeremiah George Jersey . The lawyers filed a 33-page amended complaint Tuesday in federal court in Manhattan, expanding on the suit originally filed Oct. 3 in New York Supreme Court. Arbitrator Fredric Horowitz last week refused to compel Selig to testify in the grievance, and Rodriguez then walked out of the hearing without testifying. Reggie Wayne Jersey .

Exeter secured their first Champions Cup win of the season as they made the most of Nans Ducuings red card to seal a 20-12 victory over Bordeaux-Begles.Ducuing was sent off for a dangerous tackle on Olly Woodburn in the 49th minute, his dismissal allowing the Chiefs to edge a tight encounter.Thomas Waldrom had crossed for the English side in the first period, but even when Ducuing saw red there was little between the teams.In the end, Luke Cowan-Dickies second-half try was the crucial moment, and Henry Slade added 10 points with his left boot.Last Sundays encounter between the two sides at Sandy Park had seen a tight first half and the rematch in France followed suit.With both sets of forwards dominating a physical battle, chances were at a minimum.Lionel Beauxis should have done better with a drop-goal attempt and Slade came close to collecting a chip through to score, but the first quarter ended scoreless.Both defences were on top, but Beauxis broke the deadlock in the 24th minute with a penalty.Then, just five minutes later, a flowing Bordeaux move ended with Exeter lock Mitch Lees seeing yellow for infringing at the ruck.Beauxis made it 6-0 from the resulting penalty but down to 14, Exeter suddenly found a second gear.Rob Baxters men promptly went up the other end, a half-break from Slade putting Exeter on the front foot.When the ball was recycled, the powerful Waldrom smashed his way over for the first try of the day. Slade convertedd to put the visitors ahead, an advantage they held on to when half-time arrived.ddddddddddddack to a full complement for the start of the second period, Exeter nonetheless slipped behind again as Beauxis nailed his third penalty soon after the interval.Then, the game changed.Ducuing went up for a high ball with Woodburn, the Exeter wing landing in worrying fashion as his neck took the brunt of the fall.Both players only had eyes for the ball but after sending the incident to the TMO, referee John Lacey deemed Ducuings tackle dangerous and showed him a red card.Faced with playing the last half-hour with 14, Bordeaux were up against it and Slades penalty quickly put Exeter back into a one-point lead.But that failed to stop the home sides aspirations, a tense match entering the final 20 minutes with little between the sides.In the 62nd minute the game became 14 against 14 as Exeters Greg Holmes was yellow-carded for a dangerous tackle in a maul.It was plain stupidity from Holmes, allowing Bordeaux to hit back. Replacement Baptiste Serin quickly kicked a penalty, but the see-saw action continued.Cowan-Dickie then responded as he crashed over from close range for what proved to be the decisive score.Slade converted and sealed the win with a late penalty, but Exeter still face a tough ask to qualify from Pool Five.
