England fast-bowler, Stuart Broad has revealed that teammate James Anderson was distraught after leaving the field on the first day of Ashes Test owing to tightness in his right calf. The 37-year-old is now awaiting the results of a scan and could miss the remaining part of the Edgbaston Test.
Anderson first tore his right calf muscle while playing for Lancashire against Durham at Sedburgh on July 2 and missed the Ireland Test but he felt further discomfort to his calf when he was only four overs in his first spell on the opening day of the Ashes Test and left the field to undergo treatment.
"He's a bit distraught. He came and said sorry to the bowlers. He feels like he's let the bowling group down, which of course he hasn't. He's down and he's frustrated," Broad said.
