ENG VS AUS: The thought of an “explosive” Ashes summer has the ageless James Anderson licking his lips. With 177 Test appearances, Anderson ranks second all-time after India’s Sachin Tendulkar, but at age 40, he is still considering the difficulties ahead rather than dwelling on the good times. Both newcomers and seasoned players have been energized by England’s new aggressive strategy, and Anderson believes that when Australia visits later this year, the series will be explosive.

Ben Stokes and Brendon McCullum completely changed England’s strategy, which also affected their performance. In December, Anderson celebrated his 20th year playing for his country. Anderson praised Stokes’ courage and leadership, pointing to the captain’s insistence that a worn-out bowling group is excused from a meeting with Pakistani Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif following a last-minute invitation in Rawalpindi last month.

ENG VS AUS: “Going To Be Fun”: James Anderson

ENG VS AUS: James Anderson Fired Up For ‘Incredible’ Ashes

“It’s exciting to be on this team. Whoever we play it’s going to be fun, we’re going to give it a good crack, and Australia in the summer could just be incredible. I can’t see them (the Australians) doing anything but going toe-to-toe. They’re going to fight fire with fire and that’s going to make it so explosive and exciting. There is something wrong with you as a player if you didn’t enjoy the way we’re playing.”

Anderson said

Anderson, meanwhile, had been unexpectedly dropped along with Stuart Broad for the last tour of the West Indies, and he might have easily left before Stokes’ revolution even got started.

ENG VS AUS: James Anderson About His Teammates

“There was definitely a moment when I thought that could be it. There was a bit of anger and disappointment. I was just trying to make sense of it and not make any rash decisions. I was speaking to Broady quite a bit then too. There was a bit of anger and disappointment. That not knowing – Is that it? Do they want to move on and get younger blood in? – but thankfully we both thought we’d start the season with our counties and see if we still had the hunger for it, which we both did.”

Said James Anderson

Anderson was pleasantly impressed by the manner Ben Stokes led the English team’s resurgence last year while speaking about the leadership abilities of his red-ball captain. After a string of disappointing performances in the longest format of the game, Joe Root opted to step aside from his position as captain, and the erratic all-rounder assumed the responsibility.
