“I hate missing games. After that game at Headingley the feeling around the group is so good you want to be around it as much as possible. It was disappointing to miss the last game. While seeing the guys out on the field having a good time and playing well. I’ll keep my fingers crossed that I can get back in this week.”

ENG VS IND: “We’ve Started Brilliantly”: James Anderson

ENG VS IND: ‘I’ll Keep my Fingers Crossed’: England Veteran James Anderson

India was leading 2-1 when the fifth Test at Old Trafford was called off last September because of worries over a COVID-19 outbreak in their camp. While England started a new era of aggressive cricket under Brendon McCullum as head coach and Ben Stokes as captain. After recording just one victory in 17 Test matches. Anderson claimed that the upbeat atmosphere in the camp has inspired him to take up arms again.

In 2002, Anderson made his debut in international cricket. While he set records for England with 651 wickets and 171 Tests. Even the veteran swing specialist was surprised by how England managed to maintain a remarkable run rate of 4.54 per over throughout the New Zealand series.

Former captain Joe Root, who was in fine form, and the revitalized Jonny Bairstow each got close to 400 runs. With both Yorkshiremen recording two hundred.

“We’ve started brilliantly, and I think we’ve shown what style of cricket we want to play under Ben (Stokes) and Brendan (McCullum). Having got to know those two and see them work together over the past few weeks. They’ll want to build on that and not just settle for those performances. I certainly feel like I’ve got a smile on my face on the field a bit more than I normally have! It’s just been so much fun playing with this group and the style of cricket that we have been playing.”

Anderson said

ENG VS IND: Ben Foakes And Stuart Broad’s Absence

Ben Foakes, England’s wicketkeeper-batter, will not play against India. Sam Billings has been added to the 15-man team as his replacement. Stuart Broad, who played in all three Tests against New Zealand, might be out of the bowling lineup.

Positive cases are treated with more latitude these days, with Rohit Sharma’s absence this week being considered an occupational hazard. The fifth Test is being played at Edgbaston. Ben Stokes, the team’s captain, and Brendon McCullum, the team’s coach and the former captain of New Zealand, are England’s new red-ball leadership duo.
