Injury update on James Anderson

'Progressing nicely' – Anderson aims to get fully fit for South Africa Tests

James Anderson says he is ‘progressing nicely’ as he aims to return to action from a calf injury.

Anderson bowled only four overs in the first Ashes Test at Edgbaston, before his calf problem aggravated.

Since then, he has been out of action and will continue to miss England’s two-match Test series in New Zealand which starts from November 21.

In order to regain full fitness for England’s Test series against South Africa in December, Anderson sought out the facilities of football club Manchester City to train with ECB sports science team.

England’s all-time leading wicket-taker on Friday posted a video of himself bowling in the nets as former England batsmen Marcus Trescothick and Jonathan Trott were seen on the sidelines.

"Another day of building up my bowing. Progressing nicely. Happy the two guys on the right weren't batting!" Anderson said in a tweet.

The 37-year-old recently said he had no ambitions of retirement and wants to emulate footballer Ryan Giggs, who represented Manchester United till the age of 40.
