Pakistan fielding coach Steve Rixon has warned England that conditions in Manchester should suit the Pakistan bowling attack more than those at Lords. Pakistan won the first Investec Test to take a 1-0 lead in the four-match series, with Yasir Shah claiming ten wickets in the match.But Rixon said the extra bounce anticipated in the Old Trafford wicket will assist both Yasir and Pakistans seamers and feels that Mohammad Amir, with his much-anticipated return behind him, will be able to relax and produce improved performances in the rest of the series.This pitch will suit both forms of our attack, Rixon said. I think our seamers will do very well here with the extra bounce. They had a role to play in the last game, but probably didnt start as well as they would have liked.Amir can move on now. And I do congratulate the Lords crowd again because they absolutely embraced him. They could have made life very hard for him, but they were very good. Fair play to them.Comparing Yasirs exceptional control to that of Shane Warne, Rixon suggested that all Test teams would struggle to play him. Yasir went to the top of the Test bowling rankings as a result of his haul at Lords and requires 14 wickets from the next two games to break George Lohmanns long-held record for being quickest to 100 Test victims.Generally speaking, Yasir will have a major effect in any game of cricket, Rixon said. It doesnt have to turn a lot for him to have an impact.When you have magnificent control you are in the game and there are very few who have had that. Shane Warne is one and Yasir is rightfully sitting at the top of the tree for that reason.Most countries around the world play wristies (wristspinners) quite poorly to be honest, so to see someone master it and play them well is a treat to see but I havent seen a lot that do that yet.Rixon also praised the spirit within the Pakistan camp. Impressed by the fitness and preparation of the team after their boot camp in Pakistan and prolonged training camp in Hampshire at the start of the tour, Rixon talked of building a culture within the squad.What weve got is a group of youngsters who we are getting up to speed and building a culture, he said. I wasnt there for the boot camp but it obviously did make a big difference. It was part of an overall culture change. Now we have to rebuild that culture and make sure everyone is on the same page.But Rixon has warned Pakistan they should expect a strong reaction from England and expects both James Anderson and Ben Stokes to play in Manchester.Jimmy Anderson is a great bowler and hell be a treat in any side, Rixon said. He and Stokes are very fine cricketers. They will add to the England attack and overall composition of the side. We are expecting as hard a game as well get in the series right here.Having won at Lords, the pressure is probably on us. So we need to get our game in order. If we do that and win here, then happy days. But if we lose here and the momentum swings the other way then we have two games in Birmingham and The Oval which create a lot of pressure for our youngsters. So its very important we get it right here. Custom Predators T-shirts . Terms of the deal were not immediately available.

LUBBOCK, Texas -- Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield returns to Lubbock to play for the first time since he transferred from Texas Tech three years ago.The redshirt junior from Austin will lead the No. 16 Sooners when they meet the Red Raiders on Saturday night. Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops believes Mayfield, whos averaging about 300 yards passing and has 16 TD passes, will manage the situation well.Hes not a freshman, he said. Just stick to whats been positive for him and good for him. The way hes executing, why would you change any of that?Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury, who played Mayfield in eight games in 2013 as a freshman walk-on, doesnt see a lingering issue with the OU quarterback.I mean, any time a player was out of school and comes back, there will be some of that volatility, Im sure, he said. But for me, the way its worked out, its been three years. Its just trying to get prepared to beat a very good OU team.Mayfield says talk of revenge against at his former school is outdated, though he knows hell still have to deal with Texas Tech fans.Thatll be the different part, he said. But for me, its no different than playing any other Big 12 team.Oklahoma (4-2, 3-0 Big 12) is looking for a fourth-straight win and to stay in the hunt for the Big 12 title, while the Red Raiders (3-3, 1-2) aim to rebound after dropping two in a row.A few more things to look for when Texas Tech hosts Oklahoma:OUS RUNNING BACK -- TEXAS TECHS RELIEFTexas Tech must be sighing with relief now that it wont have to defend against Sooners RB Samaje Perine, who is out for at least two weeks with a pulled leg muscle. As a freshman two years ago, Perine rushed for 213 yards on 25 carries against the Red Raiders, and last year he gained 201 yards on 23 carries against Texas Tech. This season he who has rushed for 475 yards and six touchdowns. RB Joe Mixon, who has 476 yards and two touchdowns rushing this season, will carry a bigger load for the Sooners, along with freshman Abdul Adams, whos played in only two games and is averaging 4.dddddddddddd3 yards. Hes going to do whatever it takes to win, Mayfield said about Mixon.QB MATCHUPTexas Tech QB Patrick Mahomes, still working to overcome a throwing arm shoulder injury, leads the nation in passing yards per game (429.8), passing yards (2,579) and total offense (455.2 ypg). Last week he had his second-lowest passing yard total this season (305). Mahomes is an exceptional quarterback, Stoops said. Mayfields also got some good national stats: third in pass efficiency (180.4), fifth in completion percentage (70.6) and 12th in passing yards per completion (14.42).DEFENDING THE PASSBoth teams rank near the bottom of Big 12 on defending the pass. The Sooners are ranked ninth, giving up 277.3 passing ypg, while the Red Raiders are one slot ahead, allowing 274.3 passing ypg. Each team has a top-notch receiver. Texas Techs Jonathan Giles is the leagues leading receiver (7.2 catches and 125 yards per game). Oklahomas Dede Westbrook is averaging as many catches as Giles but a few yards fewer (121.3). Defenses are definitely going to start keying on him, said Westbrooks WR colleague Mark Andrews. I think its something that they have to do. Its going to open up the run game and other guys in the receiving corps.PENALTY PROBLEMSTexas Tech is last in the nation for number of penalties per game (9.67), having been penalized 58 times in six games for 504 yards. The Red Raiders had 10 penalties for 103 yards in the loss to West Virginia, including a personal foul against offensive tackle Justin Murphy, who was ejected and wont play the first half against the Sooners. Kingsbury said hell hold players accountable. Theyll come out of the ballgame and wont play much, if that occurs moving forward. Then theyll have punishment during that week as well.---AP college football website: http://collegefootball.ap.org ' ' '
