James Anderson took another step in the Ashes comeback plan with a solid day at Lancashire 2nd XI.
Anderson suffered a calf injury on the first test opening day in Edgbaston, which resulted in him being excluded from the rest of the game and the next two retests due to a calf injury. However, he was behind the scenes of England's historic victory at Headingley, continuing his rehabilitation with the national team medics.
Anderson sent 20 overballs from Lancashire 2nd XI on the first day of the four-day friendly match against Durham 2nd XI at Chester Boughton Hall CC on Tuesday.
He reported that in a game against Leicestershire last week, he scored 23 points in two in nine overruns against Rankershire Seconds, did not recur, and bothered him for the first time in early July.
If Anderson goes through this latest match, it is expected that it will be a good opportunity to raise the recall to England on the fourth test held in Old Trafford from September 4.
