England dropped Jon Lewis from their final XI for the second Test against Pakistan starting at Old Trafford here Thursday.


Instead the third seamer's spot went to Sajid Mahmood, returning to Test cricket on his Lancashire home ground.


England had already omitted uncapped off-spinner Jamie Dalrymple from their squad, with Mahmood the only change to their side that drew the first Test at Lord's after Durham quick Liam Plunkett was forced out with a side strain.


Andrew Strauss continued to captain the team in the absence of injured all-rounder Andrew Flintoff.


This match was the second of a four-Test series.


England team


Marcus Trescothick, Andrew Strauss (capt), Alastair Cook, Kevin Pietersen, Paul Collingwood, Ian Bell, Geraint Jones (wkt), Matthew Hoggard, Sajid Mahmood, Stephen Harmison, Monty Panesar.
