Injury worry for England as Jimmy Anderson limps out of Roses match

• Fast bowler pulled up alarmingly in his run-up playing for Lancashire
• Anderson next in line to play for England in first Test against South Africa

Jimmy Anderson had to leave the field with a suspected groin injury on the first morning of the Roses match between Lancashire and Yorkshire at Old Trafford.

The England seamer pulled up alarmingly in his run-up in the middle of his sixth over and, after getting to his feet, made his way gingerly out of the action.

Liam Livingstone: ‘I have always had that confidence that I could make it’

After a mighty winter with the Lions, the Lancashire all-rounder is intriguing the England selectors and an ODI cap seems a certainty this summer

Lancashire’s Liam Livingstone is a cricketer on whom observers often pin that abstract trait of having “a bit about him”. In Livingstone’s case that means a certain swagger – he spent his first full county summer not only piling up runs but also rubbing opponents up the wrong way.

He has since translated that form into a mighty winter with the Lions and the England selectors are interested to the extent that it would be a surprise if he is not the owner of an ODI cap by the end of the summer. It looks likely to come against Ireland in May, when Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler are playing in the Indian Premier League, but he may have to wait and face West Indies in September, when a raft of debutants are expected.

Jimmy Anderson hopes for injury-free England Test summer in runup to Ashes

• Lancashire swing bowler taking road to fitness ‘step by step’
• Anderson could line up for county against Alastair Cook’s Essex from 7 April

England’s all-time leading wicket-taker Jimmy Anderson remains confident his body can withstand the rigours of seven Tests in two months this summer but, as he turns 35 in July, accepts he has to take things “step by step”. As a result, the Lancashire swing bowler is unable to look as far ahead as England’s tour of Australia later in the year, which would be his fourth Ashes tour.

Alastair Cook confident injured Jimmy Anderson can still be force for England

• Fast bowler ruled out of fifth Test against India with ‘body soreness’
• Captain hopeful Stuart Broad will return to the side after foot issue

Alastair Cook is confident Jimmy Anderson will continue to be a force for England over the next two years after the fast bowler was ruled out of the fifth Test with India in Chennai on fitness grounds.

Anderson, 34, has chiefly had an injury-free international career since making his debut in 2003 but with what Cook described as “body soreness” resulting in England’s record wicket-taker missing what would be his eighth Test out of the last 23, there is a sense time may be catching up on his body.

England’s Jimmy Anderson questions India double-centurion Virat Kohli

• Anderson says Mumbai conditions have masked Kohli’s technical deficiencies
• India captain Kohli has scored record 640 runs in series

Virat Kohli has dominated England’s bowlers to the tune of 640 runs this series but Jimmy Anderson, who has gone wicketless in his last three innings, believes right-hander’s technical flaws are merely being masked by home conditions.

England will change tack after passive defiance fails to gain positive result

Jos Buttler and Chris Woakes are just two of the options open to Alastair Cook for Mohali after England’s selection process for India has been shown up as flawed

The end was swift and unflattering for England; the margin was 246 runs and there were at least 53 overs still to be bowled when Jimmy Anderson completed his record-breaking innings and the Test was over.

Anderson stands alone at the top of the list of Englishmen with the most ducks in Test cricket; moreover this was the first time in 110 years an England player had suffered the indignity of a king pair in a Test match since Ernie Hayes in 1906, but this is the least of the tourists’ worries. Anderson is here to bowl and he did that well in this match.

Jimmy Anderson may be fit but England have reason to resist change in India | Vic Marks

Verdant Visakhapatnam does not look the place to recall England’s record wicket-taker given the third Test in Mohali starts so soon afterwards, and the spinners are finding their rhythm

For the second match in succession England will play on a new Test ground and that brings many virtues. Here on the outskirts of a city that sits alongside the Bay of Bengal is a stadium that has been polished for the grand occasion.

Beyond the neat, symmetrical stands, the verdant, tree-lined hills rise up spectacularly. We might be in Pallekele just outside Kandy or somewhere leafy in the Caribbean. The practice facilities are spacious and of the highest quality, just as they were in Rajkot, while the rest of the grassland outside the ground has been chalked with the precision of the Wimbledon courts to designate the parking spaces for the VVIPs, who will be coming to the Test match on Thursday.

England draw with India: five talking points from the first Test

Jimmy Anderson may struggle to displace England’s in-form bowlers while India need to call time on struggling Gautam Gambhir

Jimmy Anderson says he is fit and appears keen to play in the second Test in Visakhapatnam – although he did not appear to mention the venue by name. This alone raises questions: even if the selectors decide it’s not worth it then leaving out England’s record wicket-taker is a decision they will have to justify. And if Anderson does come into the team, who drops out? Stuart Broad, the other senior bowler, was rested only one Test ago. Dropping either of the other two seamers, Ben Stokes and Chris Woakes, not only means leaving out an in-form player but weakens a batting order who have still to prove their strength despite producing four hundreds in the first Test. The other option is to drop a spinner and Zafar Ansari would probably be the man to miss out after Adil Rashid impressed with seven wickets in Rajkot. However the talk of the town is Visakhapatnam will be spin-friendly, so England should be wary of altering the 3-3 balance of the attack. Dan Lucas

England’s Jimmy Anderson hopes to be fit for second Test against India

• England fast bowler is closing in on return to fitness
• Anderson says lack of match practice will not be an issue

Jimmy Anderson could be fit for the second Test against India in Visakhapatnam next week. The 34-year-old, England’s record Test wicket-taker, is closing in on a return to full fitness following a shoulder injury that ruled him out of the drawn series in Bangladesh.

The problem kept Anderson out of the first Test against India in Rajkot – England made 311 for four in their first innings – and there were fears he would miss most of the tour.

• Alastair Cook: Anderson is ‘a week ahead of where we thought’

James Anderson is set to join England’s tour of India in Rajkot, captain Alastair Cook has confirmed.

Jimmy Anderson not named in initial England squad for Test series in India

• Party unchanged as pace bowler continues recovery from shoulder injury
• Alex Hales, who opted out of Bangladesh tour, is also not included

Jimmy Anderson has not been included in England’s initial 16-man squad for the five-Test series against India, having already been ruled out of the first Test in Rajkot starting on 9 November as he continues his recovery from a shoulder injury. In addition Alex Hales, who opted out of the tour to Bangladesh, is also not named.

It is still possible that Anderson, England’s record Test wicket-taker with 463 in 119 matches, could play some part against the top-ranked Test nation but his availability would depend on the assessment of the medical team.

• Fast bowler is still recovering from shoulder injury
• Anderson may not even travel to India in time for Rajkot Test

Jimmy Anderson set to miss Bangladesh tour with persistent shoulder injury

• Scan reveals England’s record wicket-taker needs longer lay-off
• Bowler faces going into five-Test India series undercooked

Jimmy Anderson is set to miss England’s tour of Bangladesh due to the shoulder injury that dogged his summer, giving the team management a headache over his fitness before the Test series against India in November.

Anderson, 34, has not played since the Test series with Pakistan in August in order to help him recover from the stress fracture to his right shoulder blade that was discovered earlier in the season and caused a selection row before the Lord’s Test with Pakistan. But it is understood that scans this week have shown that a longer break is now required in order to complete the healing process, with the two-Test series against Bangladesh that starts in Chittagong on 20 October expected to be too soon.

England showed against Pakistan that they have all the tools to win | Mike Selvey

How Jimmy Anderson put the team on the road to victory at Edgbaston brought to mind Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis

England are learning not just to win but to win in adversity, another box ticked. Last year, against New Zealand at Lord’s,they overcame a first-innings deficit and were victorious and now, at Edgbaston on Sunday, they have done it again. They might have folded on the third evening, when Alastair Cook and Alex Hales went out with England 103 runs behind, but so positively did they bat, fed by some modest bowling at a time when Pakistan ought to have been hammering home their advantage, that they shifted the game in a session. By the time the teams took the field on the fourth morning the momentum was with England and Pakistan, knowing they must bat last, would already have seen the signs.

Jimmy Anderson: ‘I can stay one step ahead despite my speed dropping’

• 34-year-old is hungrier than ever to play for England
• ‘I can do a job even if my speeds drop’

Age remains merely a number for Jimmy Anderson who, despite having turned 34 on Saturday, claims to retain a hunger to improve his skills coupled with the experience of a gnarled old defender in football.

Anderson, England’s record Test wicket-taker, missed the first Test with Pakistan at Lord’s because of a stress fracture to his right shoulder – a call that caused all manner of selection-based angst – but returned for the win at Old Trafford last week that sees the series level going into Wednesday’s third encounter at Edgbaston.
