Injured James Anderson hopes to be fit in time for opening Ashes Test

England fast bowler James Anderson, who is currently struggling with a torn muscle, is hopeful that he will be fit in time for the opening Test of the five-match Ashes series, beginning August 1 at Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham. 

The 36-year-old all-time leading wicket-taker is currently doubtful for the first Ashes Test after sustaining a low-grade calf during a game for Lancashire in the County Championship earlier this month.

Anderson has been named in England’s 16-man pre-Ashes training camp squad as well as for the side’s lone four-day Test match against Ireland at iconic Lord’s Cricket Ground starting Wednesday. 

Though the England pacer is not sure if he would be able to feature in clash against Ireland, he expressed confidence of being fit in time for Ashes series opener.
