England injury setback claims

England (9/4 to win 2010-11 Ashes series) have major concerns over main strike bowler James Anderson heading into the Ashes against Australia this winter, according to reports.

It’s claimed the Lancashire paceman has suffered broken ribs during England’s training camp in Germany, ahead of the tour Down Under

According to the Daily Mirror, Anderson is said to have picked up the injury whilst boxing and is understood to be a doubt for the opening two Tests against Australia (10/11 to win 1st Test).

The injury will reportedly take two months to heal and if that is the case, he will miss the first two matches in Brisbane and Adelaide.

To lose Anderson will be a massive blow to England, not only as being a key bowler but also due to his vast experience in the Test Arena.

If the reports are correct, then Surrey’s Chris Tremlett (12/1 to be Top England Series Bowler) and Yorkshire’s Tim Bresnan will be the two bowlers pushing to replace Anderson.

It is also likely to see a call-up to the 16-man squad for Yorkshire’s Ajmal Shahzad, who is likely to provide bowling cover.
