Anderson to miss second Test

Anderson to miss second Test

Lancashire bowler ruled out of the Lord's Test due to calf injury

England seam bowler Jimmy Anderson, who left the field during the first Specsavers Ashes Test against Australia on day one due to tightness in his right calf, underwent an MRI scan this week.

The MRI confirmed that Anderson has suffered a calf injury. As a result of the injury, he will commence a rehabilitation programme working with the England and Lancashire medical teams.

Anderson will miss the second Test match, which starts at Lord's on Wednesday 14 August.

He will be reassessed on an ongoing basis regarding his availability for the rest of the Specsavers Ashes series.
