James Anderson, a fast bowler for England, has said that he has fully recovered from a groyne injury and will ‘absolutely’ be ready for the first Ashes Test that will be played against Australia the following month. The match will take place at Edgbaston.

Last week, Anderson suffered an injury while playing for Lancashire, despite the fact that he is England’s all-time leader in Test bowling with 685 wickets. Since Josh Tongue is a new addition to the squad and has no prior playing experience, it is quite improbable that he will take part in the final test match before the Ashes, which will be contested against Ireland.

When asked if he would be fit for the opening match against Australia at Edgbaston on June 16, Anderson, who is 40 years old, responded “Yes, definitely” in an interview with the Telegraph newspaper on Wednesday.

“I have no issues running and bowling again, and I’m just keeping my fingers crossed that I can carry on going as I have been and will be ready for the Ashes,” the experienced pacer added.

“The plan is to try to step it up here at Lancashire over the next couple of days, and then meet up with England on Sunday and see where I get to from there,” he said. “The idea is to try to step it up here at Lancashire.” “We have to make a decision on whether or not I play in the test against Ireland closer to the game,” Anderson said. “I am in the squad for the match.”

The availability of Anderson is absolutely necessary for England, who are already playing without their fast bowler Jofra Archer due to injury. The most recent Ashes series was played in Australia, where England was defeated by a score of 4-0.

After Jofra Archer was informed that he would not be able to participate in The Ashes or the remainder of the summer due to an injury, Anderson expressed his “absolute guttedness” in a previous interview with Sky Sports.
