Zafar Ansari has joined Stuart Broad as an injury doubt ahead of the third Test after both players missed training in Mohali on Thursday.While the England management have yet to confirm anything, it seems Broad has almost no chance of playing. He sustained a foot injury on the opening day of the Visakhapatnam Test and has been hobbling around in a moon boot in recent days.Ansaris situation is less clear. He has recovered from the illness that troubled him in Vizag, but is still struggling with a sore back. He will have to prove his fitness in training on Friday if he is to have any chance of playing in the Test that starts on Saturday. Fellow spinner Gareth Batty is therefore likely to come back into the side if Ansari is ruled out.Any thoughts that England may have had of playing an extra seamer were surely scotched by a first look at the Test pitch in Mohali. Dry, cracked and shaved, there is nothing in it to suggest a fourth seamer would be a lot of use.That is not ideal, though. Batty, like Moeen Ali, is an offspinner and, against an India line-up packed with right-handers, the left-arm option that Ansari provided could be missed.There is another option. England could pick an extra batsman, allowing them to retain Ben Duckett - they are keen not to dent his confidence - and find a place for Jos Buttler. Moeen Ali would probably be moved back down to No. 8, with Chris Woakes at nine and Adil Rashid at ten, but it is Englands batting that has let them down and, in the cooler climate of Mohali - think of a pleasant day in England in May - there is less need for a sixth bowler to share the workload.It is unlikely they will adopt such an approach. Alastair Cook likes the balance of an attack that contains three seamers and three spinners and, with a couple of those spinners a little more inconsistent than he would like, the insurance policy of the extra bowler is understandable. It is more likely that Moeen - ultimate utility player that he is - will be asked to fill yet another hole and bat at No. 4.You wonder if Moeens low maintenance demeanour and innate modesty sometimes count against him; it is hard to think of a player who has been shunted up and down the order as often. If he bats at No. 4 in Mohali, No. 3 will be the only position in the top nine he has not filled.One man who looks certain to play in Mohali is Woakes. England missed him in Vizag, most notably with the bat, but also with the ball. As well as developing great accuracy - he hardly bowled a poor delivery in Rajkot - he has also developed into Englands quickest bowler with a bouncer than can trouble the best of them; just ask Cheteshwar Pujara. In his absence, it was mainly left to Ben Stokes to test the India batsmen with the short ball.Woakes is about as far from the archetypal image of a raging, snorting fast bowler as you could meet. He modestly admits that his late development of pace has rendered him the fastest bowler in the team for the first time since I was 12 and said the first thing he thinks when he hits a batsman is wanting to make sure hes okay. While he claims he was disappointed to be rotated out of the team for the second Test, it is hard to imagine him unleashing much more than a quiet tut of disapproval at the decision. Besides, he says he feels fresher for the break.He was asked - inevitably - about Englands method of shining the ball. And, equally inevitably, he steered a diplomatic course between expressing some sympathy for Faf du Plessis and some understanding of the margins that exist between sucking on a sweet to generate saliva and directly applying the sweet to the ball. A future in diplomacy awaits.If youre placing a sweet on the ball that is obviously against the rules, Woakes said. But everything else seems to be a little bit of a grey area. We wont be changing anything we do when we go out there this week. Theres always cameras on you, there always have been, so theres nothing we need to change.Hashim Amla said he had chewing gum in his mouth pretty much all day. Is that deemed as wrong and as cheating? I think it needs to be clarified exactly what the problem is.At drinks breaks, guys have sweets or mints just to freshen up and keep the energy going, but nothing from a sweet is allowed to go on a ball so therefore we dont do that. Its just a sugar boost really. Gatorade has sugar in it as well. We take those drinks on board and then lick our [finger] and put that on the ball. Is that classed as a sugary substance going on the ball? I dont know.Of more concern to England is how to bowl to Virat Kohli. While Pujara has scored heavily in the first two Tests as well, it is Kohli who is keeping England awake at night. He looks magnificent and, in the second innings at Rajkot and Vizag, a class above anyone else from either side. In the past, England have been able to deal with him with lateral movement and good control. But there is little movement here and Kohli looks an improved player. These are still three Tests to play, but he could well prove to be the difference between the sides in this series.His first 30 balls will be crucial, Woakes said. Because once he gets in, its hard to get him out. But I feel like the teams are fairly evenly matched. I know they are in their own conditions and they are good in their own conditions but I dont think theyre out of reach.

Western was last ranked first in the country in October 2011.KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Ervin Santana could be traded before the end of the month, and his superb effort Friday might make some contenders interested. Santana allowed two singles in 7 1-3 innings and the Kansas City Royals beat the Detroit Tigers 1-0 on Friday night to snap a five-game losing streak. The third-place Royals are seven games behind the first-place Tigers. Santana, who can be a free agent after the season and has been widely speculated to be traded before the July 31 deadline without a player clearing waivers, did not allow a runner to reach second base. He walked one and struck out six. "Everything was working, especially my location," Santana said. "Everything was down." Santana (6-6), who was coming off his worst outing of the season, when he allowed eight runs on 10 hits in a July 11 loss at Cleveland, retired the first 10 Tigers before Torii Hunters one-out single in the fourth. "That club over there has the best 2-3-4-5-6 hitters in baseball, I feel," Royals manager Ned Yost said. "That shows how you how good Santana was." Kelvin Herrera, who was just recalled from Triple-A Omaha, replaced Santana in the eighth after he walked Jhonny Peralta with one out. Herrera retired Andy Dirks on a grounder and struck out Alex Avila looking. "A very good outing," Yost said of Herrera. Greg Holland worked a flawless ninth for his 23rd save in 25 opportunities, striking out one. He has been perfect in his past 16 save chances. "Santana was unbelievable," Holland said. "I watched the first three innings in here (clubhouse) on TV and I thought he had a chance to throw a no-hitter." Alex Gordon led off the Royals first with a single to right, stole second with one out and scored on Billy Butlers ground-ball single to centre. That was the only run Tigers right-hander Anibal Sanchez (7-7) would allow in six innings, but that was one too many. "I did not know that was goiing to be enough," Butler said.dddddddddddd "It was a pitchers duel, old-fashioned." Sanchez, who was making his third start since coming off the disabled list with a shoulder strain, left after 101 pitches, allowing four singles, walking five and striking out three. "My command today wasnt the best," Sanchez said. "A lot of times I was behind. I just tried to throw my best pitch. I felt good, I felt healthy. I was strong all day long. I finished my game strong. "I kept the score right there (after the first-inning run). You have to give them credit sometimes. Santana threw a good ballgame." The Royals loaded the bases with two outs in the sixth on Butlers single and walks to Mike Moustakas and David Lough, but failed to score as Alcides Escobar struck out to end the inning. The Royals are 4-2 against the American League Central Division-leading Tigers, with five of the games decided by two or less runs. "Both teams hit the ball better than the results showed," Tigers manager Jim Leyland said. "It was a very good game. Santana pitched good and we swung the bats good, but didnt get much result. We couldnt get some balls to fall. But they earned it." The Tigers were shut out for the seventh time this season. Notes: 2B Chris Getz, who was recalled after hitting .313 in 14 games with Triple-A Omaha, started Friday. He went 0 for 2 with a walk and a strikeout. ... Tigers IF Omar Infante, who went on the disabled list July 4, will link up with the club Saturday for an evaluation of his sprained left ankle. He has been rehabbing at the Tigers facility in Lakeland, Fla. . ... RHP Justin Verlander, who starts Saturday, has a 0.64 ERA in two games this season against the Royals, but no decisions.
