    Stuart Broad says England need to forget about Pakistan bowler Mohammad Amirs past and concentrate on his cricketing abilities. [b]Albert Pujols Jersey[/b] . Englands series against Pakistan begins on Thursday at Lords, live on Sky Sports 2, and Amir is set to make a high-profile return to the Test scene, at the ground where he became embroiled in a spot-fixing scandal in 2010.The 24-year-old was one of the hottest properties in world cricket at the time and is now playing again after serving his suspension. And his performance in the tour opener against Somerset last week suggested he could be a real threat to England this summer.Broad said: It is a huge story, back for his first Test at Lords since the controversy six years ago, a massive story. But, as a team, it is a dangerous place to get waylaid by that, because we could find ourselves in a lot of trouble.Having seen the way Amir has bowled at Taunton, we need to get in the right frame of mind, because he can do us some damage.Lets start looking at him as a cricketer and a bowler, and how we can negate that. England without Anderson How have England fared without their senior strike bowler I think what will help the team move on is that there is only me, Alastair Cook and Steve Finn who played in that Test. It is a very new team.England will be without Broads regular new-ball partner James Anderson for Lords, meaning Jake Ball or Toby Roland-Jones will be given a debut. Stuart Broad will lead the England bowling attack against Pakistan at Lords this week Broad memorably bowled England to an Ashes win at Trent Bridge when Anderson was absent last year, and again impressed when England were without the Lancashire man in Durban last Christmas but still managed to secure a victory over South Africa.And Broad said: I have played 90-odd Test matches, and I can only think of maybe five or six without Jimmy. Kaushal Silva and Sri Lanka drew with England at Lords last month You are stepping into the unknown, but that can give you a bit extra. Trent Bridge went well, Durban went well. I hope it will go the same here.Broads chief concern is the Lords pitch, which has not tended to offer much help to pace bowlers of late.I think our biggest challenge is going to be this wicket, because you look at all the Middlesex scores and they are all bore draws - 500 plays 500, said the 30-year-old. Mohammad Amir says it is a miracle he will soon be back playing Test cricket at Lords and he wants to make the fans proud I dont think wickets should seam around, I just think they have got to bounce. If you cant get a bloke caught-behind or caught in the slips, it takes out 60 per cent of dismissals.The biggest test as a bowling unit will be trying to do what no other team has done this year, and thats win a game taking 20 wickets at Lords.It proved to be a big challenge when we had Jimmy in the side four weeks ago [for a rain-ruined draw with Sri Lanka], so it will be an even bigger challenge this week.See how England cope without Anderson - and Mohammad Amirs likely return to Test cricket with Pakistan - by watching the first Test at Lords, from 10am, Thursday, Sky Sports 2.

[b]Yunel Escobar Jersey[/b] . CHAUNCEY BILLUPS (Pistons): Yes they got Josh Smith and Brandon Jennings in the off-season and Andre Drummond is a beast (teams are kicking themselves for passing on him - he rebounds and block shots every game - thats two more discernable and significant skills than most guys in his draft class), but dont for a second discount the impact of having a savvy veteran like Billups on your team.ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Braves have activated catcher Gerald Laird from the 15-day disabled list and optioned outfielder Todd Cunningham to Triple-A Gwinnett. Laird was placed on the disabled list on Aug. 3, retroactive to July 26, after having kidney stones removed. He is with the Braves for Sundays game against Miami. Cunningham was recalled from Gwinnett on July 30 when outfielder Reed Johnson was placed on the disabled list with left Achilles tendinitis. [b]Ricky Nolasco Jersey[/b]. Cunningham had two hits in six at-bats with Atlanta. Laird is hitting .293 with one homer and 11 RBIs. The emergence of rookie catcher Evan Gattis has cut into Lairds playing time.
