England’s premier Test bowler James Anderson left the fans in awe with his wizardry as he hit the nets after a long hiatus due to coronavirus pandemic. The English cricketers have returned to training sessions as the side prepares for the three-match Test series scheduled in July against West Indies, subject to government clearance.
On Friday, Lancashire posted the video of Anderson bowling in the nets on their official Twitter profile:
Anderson is widely regarded as one of the best swing bowlers in the world. In 151 Tests for the side, Anderson has taken 584 wickets.

The fans were impressed with Anderson’s display of skills, using the seam of the ball to create movement, as well as bowling some deadly outswingers:
I can say quite categorically that every single one of those would have got me out.

Just look at those wrists at the time of delivery! One goes out and other comes in, without an iota of change in action!
