With the overcast conditions on offer and the bright red cherry in the hands of James Anderson, one can expect a tough life ahead for the batsman. Reaching the expectations, James Anderson delivered the magical delivery right in his first over.
The experienced English fast bowler bowled a splendid outswinger to make Murali Vijay look like a club batsman. Meanwhile, his sublime delivery caught the eyeballs of Harbhajan which also paved a way for the discussion!
How do you play that ball? Harbhajan asks Sachin Tendulkar:
After looking at the terrific outswinger from James Anderson, the veteran off-spinner of India, Harbhajan Singh pings Sachin Tendulkar on Twitter. He asked him that how he would face that delivery from James Anderson.
Replying to Harbhajan Singh’s query, Sachin Tendulkar appreciated the quality stuff from James Anderson before giving his cheeky comment. He reverted saying that he faced the same question many times when Harbhajan bowled the doosra.
”How do u play this ball? Paaji can you explain please Sachin Tendulkar what a beauty,” Harbhajan Singh asked Sachin Tendulkar.
In reply, Sachin Tendulkar quoted ”What a fantastic delivery by James Anderson! But this is a question many have asked after getting foxed by your doosra as well.”

After a complete washout on Day 1 of the Lords’ Test, the second day has been the forgettable day at the office for Indians. The top-class stuff from England bowlers headed by James Anderson saw England keeping their noses ahead.
The perfect display of seam bowling saw Indians being folded out for a mere 107 runs on the board. The experienced campaigner James Anderson has been the wrecker-in-chief with a 5-wicket haul.
Apart from Anderson, Chris Woakes picked a couple while Broad and Sam Curran grabbed apiece. Ashwin has been the highest scorer for India with 29 while Virat Kohli scored 23.
