Misbah-ul-Haq has admitted his batsmen did not have any clue how to handle the reverse swing generated by the England bowlers on the final day at Edgbaston.Pakistan lost four wickets for one run in mid-afternoon as Englands seamers transformed conditions that Misbah described as easy before lunch to those which they could not handle.It lead Misbah to suggest, with tongue in cheek, that Pakistan might have to think about sending their young bowlers to England to learn how to master the art of reverse swinging the ball; an irony considering it was Pakistan bowlers who perfected the art and England, for many years, were tortured by it.Until lunch it was easy, Misbah said. But after lunch they got it reversing and we were not having any clue. We were trying to cope with it, but we could not handle it.Anderson and Broad are used to these conditions. They are really experienced. Full credit to England for the way they fought back after we had a lead of more than 100.I think well just have to send someone to learn from England now how theyre reversing this ball. We could not do it even on the fourth day. I think they are really doing it well.While Alastair Cook rated the victory as one of his most pleasing as England captain, he dismissed the possibility that England could reach No. 1 in the Test rankings over the next few weeks as an irrelevance.It is possible that, if England win the final Test and India do not win against West Indies, that England could reach the top spot. But Cook feels his side are still a couple of years from their peak and seems to regard the landmark as something of a distraction at present.If we become number one there, thats fantastic, Cook said. But it will be a bit of an irrelevance, because this side has still got much further to go.If we do win at The Oval, I wouldnt say we are anywhere near our potential. I thought that might come in a couple of years time.Cook was especially pleased by the nature of the win bearing in mind that nobody in his side scored a century or claimed a five-wicket haul. Instead it was an impressive team performance with all five of his frontline bowlers claiming two wickets in the second innings - including Steven Finn, who bowled with hostility and claimed his first wickets of the series - while all seven batsmen contributed decent scores. England were not reliant on one or two outstanding individuals.Everyone will be in the dressing-room feeling proud to be part of the team and feeling like they contributed, Cook said. That doesnt always happen.In an absolutely ideal world, I thought there were hundreds left out there. But everyone responded, and I think this side might have just toughened up a little bit. It was hard in the second innings. We werent scoring any runs, but everyone dug in.But Cook refuted Misbahs suggestion that the reverse swing was lavish and instead suggested it was his bowlers skill that magnified the small amount of assistance they gained.We bowled brilliantly, he said. It reverse-swung a little bit. I dont think it did it massively. It just did enough and if it does a bit either way, Jimmy and Stuart are very good.Misbah could at least take some consolation in the emergence of Sami Aslam. The 20-year-old responded to his surprise call-up - this was his first first-class game of the year - by scoring 152 runs in the match and looking a player with the technique and temperament to enjoy a long career at this level.But he admitted the balance of the Pakistan side - with just four bowlers carrying a heavy burden - was putting them at a disadvantage and highlighted Englands all-rounders as a key difference between the sidesSami looks a compact player and has shown great temperament, Misbah said. I am happy that he did well against such type of bowling: experienced bowlers in their own conditions. The way he handled the pressure was good to see. Its good to find this sort of opener for Pakistan.But having just four bowlers is a problem. We used to have Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik who could bowl, but here we dont have that option now.England have Ben Stokes, Moeen Ali and Chris Woakes. Here Yasir Shah carries a tremendous load and this is a problem for us.Adidas Zx Flux Dame Danmark .

The 29-year-old Baines has established himself as one of the top attacking full backs in the country and was the subject of two bids from United during the last off-season. Everton manager Roberto Martinez says that keeping Baines at the club is a "massive boost and exciting for the future" because he brings "maturity and football knowledge in a very specialized position on the pitch" and an "infectious and positive influence to the rest of the squad.KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- An unusual pregame pep talk helped Tennessee finally earn a quality nonconference win.Diamond DeShields scored 15 points as the Lady Volunteers erased an early 11-point deficit to beat No. 10 Stanford 59-51 on Sunday and snap the Cardinals six-game winning streak.Tennessee (6-4) had dropped its first four games against major-conference teams. Tennessee assistant coach Dean Lockwood reminded the Lady Vols how much this game meant by referring to this time of year as hunting season.He said this Stanford team is a big buck and we need to eat for the winter, (that) if we dont kill this buck, we might starve, our family might starve and its going to be a long winter, DeShields said. He said, `Lets get us a big buck. That was kind of our mentality going into the game.Tennessee guard Jordan Reynolds said Sundays game absolutely was a must win for the Lady Vols. In their four previous games against major-conference foes, the Lady Vols had fallen to Penn State, Virginia Tech, No. 3 Baylor and No. 16 Texas.This game didnt start out much better for Tennessee.Stanford (8-2) took an early 15-4 lead by effectively driving to the basket and capitalizing on Tennessees turnover problems. Tennessee got back into the game with its defense, as Stanford struggled to score after that fast start.We got them down, and we didnt keep them down, Stanford coach Tara VanDerveer said. I thought the No. 1 thing for me looking at the game was we didnt pass the ball. We held the ball. We didnt move the ball. We only had six assists. ... We just need to play better team basketball.Tennessee went on an 11-0 run in the second quarter to pull ahead 29-25 before Stanford rallied to make it 29-all at halftime.The Lady Vols pulled ahead for good by going on a 10-0 spurt that started late in the third quarter and carried over to the fourth period. Tennessee led by as many as 12 early in the final quarter, and Stanford never cut the margin below six the rest of the way.Reynolds scored 14 points, Merceddes Russell had 11 points and 13 rebounds, and Jaime Nared had 10 points for Tennessee.ddddddddddddErica McCall and Karlie Samuelson each scored 13 points for Stanford. Brittany McPhee added 11.THE TAKEAWAYStanford: The Cardinal cooled off considerably after a hot start. After making seven of its first eight field-goal attempts, Stanford (8-2) shot just 27.8 percent (15 of 54) the rest of the way. Stanford shot 4 of 20 from 3-point range.Tennessee: If Reynolds can build upon this performance, it could provide some needed balance to Tennessees offense. Reynolds had scored just two points in each of the three games leading up to this one, but she had 11 points by halftime Sunday. Heading into Sundays game, the trio of Russell, DeShields and Nared had combined for 61 percent of Tennessees scoring.My coaches have been on me a lot lately, saying that I havent been playing like myself, Reynolds said. They said a couple of words that I cant say right now, but they really got into me, telling me to be more aggressive, trying to get back to do what I do best, which is attacking.WARLICKS MILESTONEThis marked the 1,000th win that Tennessees Holly Warlick was a part of in her 36 seasons as a head coach and assistant, with the vast majority coming during her 27 seasons as a Lady Vols assistant on Pat Summitts staff. Warlick is in her fifth season as a head coach and owns a 114-38 record.I like the one, Im not worried about the 1,000, Warlick quipped. I just needed this one today.KEY STATSTennessee had nine steals Sunday and is now 5-0 when it gets at least seven steals. The Lady Vols are just 1-4 when they dont make at least seven steals. ... This marked Tennessees biggest come-from-behind victory since rallying from a 17-point deficit to beat Gonzaga in a 2015 regional semifinal.UP NEXTStanford is at George Washington on Wednesday.Tennessee hosts Troy on Wednesday.
