James Anderson seems to enjoy every battle against Indian cricket team, especially the skipper. Yet again, he beat Virat Kohli, ran through the Indian top-order, and reduced India to a total of 78. While speaking about his performances, Anderson said, he saves it for the match.

Anderson on Old Age and Work

England fast bowler James Anderson dismissed Virat Kohli for the 7th time in his career as Kohli was dismissed for mere 7 runs on Day 1 of the Leeds Test. The veteran spoke about the valued wicket of Kohli and said, “I think so (it was special). We have had some great battles over the years. He is someone you want to keep quiet. Especially, in a five-match series, if he gets going he can be very disruptive.”

But that was not all. Anderson also dismissed KL Rahul, India’s hero from the previous Test, and then sent Cheteshwar Pujara back in similar fashion. The 39-year-old opined, “As I get older, I feel like I have to work that little bit harder in the gym. I feel like I bowl less in the nets, and try to save it for when it matters in the middle.”

Anderson spoke in detail about keeping oneself switch for the very moment at the match. He explained how it is the mental strength works behind the long spells in big games. “The biggest test in Test cricket is mentally getting yourself up for bowling big spells and playing in big games. It’s about keeping yourself switch on through games and switch off when you are not bowling — that’s something I’ve always had,” he added.

England’s performance in the Lord’s Test gave birth to a lot of criticisms. The hosts attracted a bunch of negative comments and hence it was important for them to perform in Headingley with absolute “We have made a conscious effort of trying to just focus on us, on what we do well and try and ignore everything else, the outside noise or wherever there might be going on, and make sure there’s a real focus on what we do well,” the fast bowler revealed.
