England head coach Chris Silverwood believes that James Anderson lacks fitness and, even after crossing 40, the 38-year-old fast bowler leads England’s fast attack. Anderson bowled brilliantly on the last day of the first Test against India. England won the match by 227 runs.
The England coach said, “He is fully fit and looks good too.” He has worked hard on it. Along with being fit, he is also bowling well. He said, ‘As long as he is fit, strong and healthy and wants to play, he can play. Is it or not.’
Anderson can be rested in the second Test under a rotation policy despite a tremendous form. The coach said, ‘It’s tough to keep him out. I do not want to change the winning team. Let’s see what happens. He said that rotation is the right option to keep the bowlers fresh between summer and humidity.
