Bangla Hunt Desk: England’s senior fast bowler James Anderson played a key role in England’s victory in the first Test against India. He broke the waist of the Indian batting by dismissing two Indian batsmen Shubhaman Gill and Ajinkya Rahane in the same over when the Indian batsmen were trying to build an innings by chasing the target of a big run given by England. Despite bowling so well, there is no guarantee that Anderson will play in the second match of the series.
The pace bowlers in the England squad are played back and forth to rest as there is a drawn sports schedule. Stuart Broad and James Anderson have not played together in a long time. As these two senior bowlers have come of age, both of them have been given adequate rest.
In this context, James Anderson said, “There are consecutive Test matches, so we need to rest.”
The 38-year-old English pacer will overtake Anil Kumble, who has taken 619 wickets in Test cricket, to top the list with just nine wickets.
England coach Chris Silverwood also said: “It’s difficult to keep Anderson out of the team, but we have to think about rest. It is yet to be decided who will play. ”
