Anderson Ruled Out of the Remaining SA Tests Due to Injury

The MRI results revealed that his rib injury prevents him from joining the remainder of England’s tour of South Africa.

Anderson who had just returned after four months because of a calf injury has been ruled out of the remainder of England’s tour of South Africa. Last January 8 in Cape Town, Anderson underwent an MRI scan which revealed the situation of his left-rib injury sustained during the final day of the second Test at Newlands. It was also reported that he will return home to the UK in the next few days. 

As Anderson bowled a two-over spell during the final session, it was seen that he is in obvious pain. ‘Anderson felt tightness and discomfort at the end of the morning session on day five and was only able to bowl eight overs during the day’, ECB stated. 

Coach Chris Silverwood admitted that he is worried that Anderson could miss the rest of the series. ‘It's always going to be a concern for the coach and a concern for the team’, Silverwood said. ‘We want him in there - he's a great bowler. But we've got to make sure he's all right now’, he added. 

As of now, there are eleven England players who suffered from various physical injury in South Africa. To learn more about Tests, ODIs, and T20Is, check out Betwala on how to play cricket.
