Anderson heads to hospital for X-ray on thumb

England fast bowler James Anderson is in hospital having an X-ray on his thumb after sustaining an injury whilst playing for Lancashire today in the County Championship.

The injury occurred when Anderson parried a catch whilst fielding in the slips against Nottinghamshire at Old Trafford on what is a cold day for cricket in North-West England.

The 29 year-old was playing his first match since England’s winter tour of Sri Lanka. Anderson had earlier in the day opened the bowling and bowled 10 overs without taking a wicket, costing him just 8 runs.

England will be keeping their fingers crossed that the injury is not too serious ahead of the first Test match of the summer which starts at Lord’s on 17th May.

    I take it this could mean that he may be out of action for the series! This means Finn may have his place sorted for it!
