Importance of James Anderson in England test team
James Anderson is the England’s best-ever fast bowler in the test cricket format. England will start their summer with the test match against Ireland on June 1st. It is most likely that the fast bowler will not be part of the squad in Ireland’s match. There is no better love story than injuries and fast bowlers, that is same with the England’s pacers. Jofra Archer returned back home without playing all the matches of the Indian Premier League. He is suffering elbow injuring for a very long time now. Even though, he made a comeback in the England’s white-ball team in this March. Archer won’t take part in the Ashes or the Ireland as they need him for the World Cup later this year.
England and Stokes had a plan of bringing in Stone into the fast bowling unit. However, he is also suffering from hamstring issues.
