Ashes 2021: This clarification came hours after several media reports stated Anderson was ruled out of the first Test due to a calf strain.

“Jimmy is fit to play, and is not carrying an injury. With five Tests in six weeks the plan was to get him ready for the second Test in Adelaide. With the limited build-up we have had so far on the tour, both him and the management didn’t want to take the risk of him playing after what had happened in 2019 at Edgbaston, when he broke down on the first morning,” stated an ECB statement, as reported by ESPNcricinfo.
