England and Wales cricket board (ECB) have confirmed that Anderson has not suffered any injury and he is fit to compete. However, they are planning to manage the workload of a senior pacer and the board wants to get him ready for the pink-ball Test in Adelaide.

“Jimmy is fit to play, and is not carrying an injury. With five Tests in six weeks the plan was to get him ready for the second Test in Adelaide,” ECB statement said.

“With the limited build-up we have had so far on the tour, both him and the management didn’t want to take the risk of him playing after what had happened in 2019 at Edgbaston when he broke down on the first morning,” the statement added.
