English Fast Bowler James Anderson, who could not play the third test match because of a calf injury, bowled 20 overs for Lancashire’s second XI and is likely to join England in Fourth Ashes. Anderson, he took another step to prove his aptitude for the fourth Ashes test against Australia. The England leading bowler James Anderson, who is recovering from a right calf injury, claimed 1-38 against Durham’s second XI in Chester on Tuesday.
The 37-year-old, Anderson aggravated his calf injury in the first game of the ashes at Edgbaston and missed the next two tests.
As part of his rehabilitation programme, Anderson participated in Lancashire’s second XI against the second Leicestershire chain last week, picking up two wickets. If Anderson manages the four-day match in Chester Duncan, he is expected to regain his place in the England side for the fourth test at Old Trafford from 4 September 2019.
England achieved a dramatic wicket victory at Headingley to level the series at 1-1. Australian holders will retain the ashes if they win either the final test.
