England’s veteran pacer, James Anderson has recently sustained a right groin injury that has given ECB quite the scare.

However, it is a very minor injury and Anderson believes he can make a full recovery.

Meanwhile, England and Australia will face each other for the upcoming Ashes from June 16.

Additionally, Anderson sustained the injury when he was bowling on the opening day of the County Championship game for Lancashire against Somerset.

On the other hand, Anderson has given a major update on his injury.

He is certain that he will be available for the Ashes series for England and will make a good recovery.

Says, Anderson,

I’m not worried about it, it’s obviously not great getting injured, but it’s probably the best outcome for what it is, because it’s a low-grade thing, and I think in a couple of weeks I’ll be back to full fitness.

Anderson always wants to be the best version of himself

Before the start of the Ashes, England will face off against Ireland for a one-off Test that starts on the 1st of June.

Therefore, ECB would be hoping that Anderson will be available for this Test and also for the Ashes.

Moreover, the veteran pacer is now part of the English Test side for quite some years now. He has played 179 Tests and has grabbed 685 wickets so far in them.

Furthermore, the 40-year-old has also commented that he is quite frustrated with his minor injury.

It’s frustrating because you always want to feel good and get enough bowling in before a series, and you want to be fresh, so it’s now about trying to plan the best route through this summer. I felt like I needed to play this game, so it’s not ideal, but I’m not stressed about it.
