Anderson’s Golden Arm does the trick –

James Anderson initially faced a fitness issue to be part of the Edgbaston Test, but he made it to the Playing XI. Anderson then repaid the faith of team management as he turned out to be a nightmare for India on Day 1.

By the time he scalped Shreyas Iyer in the 28th over, half of the Indian side was in back in the pavilion. Alongwith Iyer, Anderson got the better of both the Indian openers- Shubman Gill and Cheteshwar Pujara to set the tone.

  • Interestingly, India’s Ravichandran Ashwin is also part of the contingent as he too is 30 fifers, however, he will have to wait for a while as he is not part of the Edgbaston Test.
