James Anderson

James Anderson surpassed Ian Botham’s record in April 2015 to become England’s leading Test wicket-taker

England’s leading Test wicket-taker James Anderson is set to join the squad ahead of the first Test against India.

Anderson, 34, was left out of the 16-man party to tour India after missing the tour of Bangladesh with a shoulder injury.

He will not play in the first Test but could appear in the second after making a quick recovery.

England will play five Tests against number one ranked side India, starting in Rajkot on 9 November.

Anderson, who has taken 463 wickets since making his Test debut in 2003, made six Test appearances for England over the summer.

He missed the first Test against Pakistan at Lord’s in July due to a shoulder problem but returned to take nine wickets in the remaining three Tests.
