Alastair Cook has revealed England will name an unchanged team for the third and final Test against Sri Lanka which starts at Lord’s on Thursday. Authentic Jack Ham Jersey . England have claimed emphatic victories in the opening two Tests of the three-match series at Headingley and Chester-le-Street and have opted to stick with the line-up that prevailed by nine wickets at the Emirates Riverside last time.All-rounder Chris Woakes replaced the injured Ben Stokes for the second Test and he retains his place in an unchanged bowling attack with Nottinghamshires Jake Ball once again missing out and having to settle for 12th man duties as the selectors resist the temptation to experiment. Sky Sports commentator Sir Ian Botham had suggested England could give Ball his debut in place of Woakes or Steven Finn, but Cook has stressed the need for consistency. It will be the same team as at Durham, said Cook. We won the game, had some good performances and consistency in selection is a big part of our thinking.It gives people chances to show what they can do in England shirts and you want people to feel as comfortable as they can. Its never going to be perfectly comfortable when you are on the periphery of trying to cement your place but thats international cricket. Alastair Cook thinks bowler Steven Finn will impress for England in the third Test against Sri Lanka But you dont want people always to be looking over their shoulder - when they get a chance they get a good run.Middlesex fast bowler Finn took just one wicket in the second Test but Cook is happy to stick with him on his home ground. Lacklustre at Lords? Can England improve their mixed recent record at Lords? Cook said: When Steven is on song, I believe he is up there with our three best seamers in the country. We saw last summer against Australia when he bowled, he bowled fantastically well. This winter when he played he was absolutely outstanding.Its not always perfect, you can take James Anderson as an example. He struggled a little bit, even by his own admissions, in South Africa for rhythm. Then for whatever reason he comes back and he is bowling as well as he has done probably in his career. Steven Finn bowls during an England net session at Lords It is never perfect. You dont get 11 guys at the top of their game the whole time.But what we do know is that Steven has the ability to take wickets. He has always done that and when he clicks he is a very hard bowler to face.He hasnt quite nailed it in these two Test matches but Ive seen glimpses in the nets. Just facing him now I have a great bruise on my leg and he should be very comfortable here at Lords. England team: Cook (capt), Hales, Compton, Root, Vince, Bairstow, Moeen Ali, Woakes, Broad, Finn, Anderson.

According to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger, it doesnt appear the offer was warmly received by the team. Blue Jackets director of hockey operations John Davidson and general manager Jarmo Kekalainen said on Wednesday the team has made offers of $6 million for two years, $32 million for six and $46 million over eight years but each one was refused by the restricted free agent centre and agent Kurt Overhardt.Last season was a breakthrough campaign for Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez. The 21-year-old Spain international became a first-team regular at the Vicente Calderon and quickly marked himself out as a key asset to Diego Simeone.Atleti were runners-up in the Champions League last term - narrowly losing out on penalties to bitter rivals Real Madrid - and Saul was vital in guiding Los Colchoneros to their second final in three seasons having scored a sublime solo goal against Pep Guardiolas Bayern Munich in the semi-final. The versatile, all-round midfielder is now being linked with Arsenal, with the Gunners reportedly eyeing further reinforcements after their £80m summer spending spree.The Football Whispers Index currently gives Sauls potential move to the Emirates a score of 1.1 out of five, which suggests any such deal is far from certain. But the fact that this one has crept up from a zero rating a couple of days ago means momentum could be building.Saul was a prospect of note within the Atletico Madrid academy for several years before his first-team debut in a Europa League fixture against Besiktas as a 17-year-old in 2012. Saul ignited Atletis Champions League semi-final against Bayern Munich with a sensational solo strike at the Calderon The Elche-born midfielder moved to Madrid to initially join Real Madrids academy in 2006, before moving across the capital to sign for Atleti in 2008. The youngster, who has represented his country at all youth levels, became a regular for Atletis B team B team in 2010.A 2013/14 loan spell with Rayo Vallecano saw Saul hone his skills by playing predominantly as a centre-back, developing the kind of appreciation for the defensive side of the game that has served him so well in Simeones ultra-disciplined system.Sauls accelerated progression to first-team regular was largely due to the misfortune of a team-mate. Portuguese midfielder Tiago Mendes was ruled out with a broken leg for most of last season, freeing up a berth which was soon claimed by the Spaniard. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just ?£6.99. No contract. Also key to Sauls ever presence in the side was his versatility. Although he has played mostly right of Atleticos midfield four, he is equally adept at playing on the other flank, or centrally as either a deep-lying pivot or a more advanced attacking midfielder.With such versatility and a remarkably broad skill set for one so young, its easy to see why Arsenal would be interested.Gunners boss Arsene Wenger bolstered his midfield options this summer with the £30m capture of combative midfielder Granit Xhaka, who arrived from Borussia Monchengladbach in May. Is Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez the missing piece to Arsenals midfield puzzle? The north Londoners were also linked to moves for wide men, with French newspaper LEquipe claiming a bid had been lodged for Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez, as well as the yearly links to Julian Draxler in the German media.Despite this, such moves did not materialised. Could Wenger have been keeping his cash aside with a swoop for Saul in mind? If so, the Atleti man would likely find himself competing for places with a couple of English players whose development seems to have stalled of late.Former Southampton pair Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are the players who would be most threatened by the potential arrival of Saul, as Alexis Sanchez has taken up a more central role this season while record signing Mesut Ozil is among the first names on the team sheet at the Emirates. Will Wenger spend again? Arsenals January transfer targets: Riyad Mahrez and Julian Draxler linked Lets see how Walcott and Oxlade-Chamberlain stack up when compared to the one-cap Spain international.Theo WalcottWhen isolating tthe players statistical performance over the last three seasons, some interesting trends appear. Authentic Roosevelt Nix Jersey. Walcotts directness is shown by the fact that he has netted 13 goals - five more than Saul - despite having only played 2449 minutes of football to the Spaniards 3897.The England attacker also boasts better shot accuracy, with 64 per cent of his efforts finding the target to Sauls 55 per cent, as well as a higher rate of take-on success.But Sauls skills begin to show their merit when analysing his creativity. He has created 32 chances for team-mates compared with Walcotts 29, and has laid on five assists -- one more than the Englishman. Walcott has scored five more goals than Saul over the past three seasons And the fact Sauls attacking stats are even comparable to Walcotts is made all the more impressive when considering his time spent playing in defence, where his offensive influence would have been greatly diminished.Oxlade-ChamberlainLike Walcott, Oxlade-Chamberlain has also featured in fewer first-team minutes than Saul over the last three seasons, with 2686. Even so, the Oxs attacking productivity has left a lot to be desired, with just three goals - five fewer than Saul - and only a single assist.His shot accuracy is also below the standard of the man he may find himself competing for places with, as only 36 per cent of Oxlade-Chamberlains strikes have worked the opposition goalkeeper.Where the 23-year-old shines, though, is through his dribbling ability. An impressive 64 per cent of Oxlade-Chamberlains take-ons have seen him getting the better of his opponent - a figure which puts him ahead of both Saul and Walcott. Oxlade-Chamberlains 79 per cent pass-completion rate surpasses Sauls Surprisingly, the 24-cap England international also has a higher pass-completion rate than Saul, with 79 per cent - while Walcott betters both men with an 82 per cent pass accuracy.Saul plays the wide midfield role in a vastly different way to either Walcott or Oxlade-Chamberlain. The Atleti star is not blessed with the kind of pace that the England pair can call upon.But what he lacks in raw speed he makes up for with tactical responsibility, creativity, and the intangible attribute of big-game temperament, having consistently performed to a high standard in Madrid derbies, clashes with Barcelona and in the latter rounds of the Champions League. Arsenal forward Theo Walcott says he will be more selfish on the football pitch His ability to play anywhere across the midfield will also be an asset that has caught Wengers eye, as well as his physicality, standing a hair over six foot.If Arsenal do decide to make a move for Saul, he will not come cheap. In May, he penned a new contract at the Vicente Calderon, committing his future to Atletico until 2021 and bumping his buyout clause up to €80m (£70.3m).You can watch Englands tour of Bangladesh, plus Premier League football and the Japan Grand Prix on Sky Sports.
