The veteran English pacer, James Anderson, much like other sports personalities from across the globe, is enjoying a break from cricket to stay safe from the global outbreak of the coronavirus. The English fast bowler recently posted a light-hearted video on Instagram where he can be seen lifting his daughters as weights as he trains at home.
In the caption, Anderson says, “The girls are more than happy to help me train at home”. England was scheduled to play a Test series against Sri Lanka later this month which has now been postponed due to the coronavirus situation.
Here is the video of the same:
James Anderson is one of England’s premier fast bowler in the longest format of the game. The right-arm fast bowler has played 151 Test matches for his country and has scalped 584 wickets with an economy rate of 2.86 and a strike rate of 56.1. In ODI’s, Anderson has 269 wickets in 194 games.
He is one of the few bowlers who have managed to give some tough time to the Indian skipper, Virat Kohli in the past. Anderson has dismissed him five times in Test cricket which not many others have achieved. Other than Anderson, Nathan Lyon and Stuart Broad have also made Kohli as their bunny in Test cricket.
Anderson was not included as a part of the Test squad against Sri Lanka as he is still recovering from his rib injury which he suffered in Cape Town during the Test series against South Africa. The English Cricket Board has suspended all forms of cricket as a safety measure against coronavirus, and that may affect their participation in the IPL which is scheduled to begin from April 15.
