James Anderson is one of the most talented bowlers around the world. The 39-year-old cricketer is known for keeping his opponents on their toes. On the opening day of the 4th Test match, Veteran England pacer James Anderson showed immense fighting and unbreakable spirit on the opening day of the 1st Test match as he bowled with a bleeding knee.
It happened during the 40th over of India’s 1st innings when Anderson had slipped during his run-out and had hurt himself probably while fielding. But instead of asking some other bowler from his team to complete the over, the 39-year-old pacer showed immense dedication towards his game as he continued to bowl and didn’t go off.
Fans were quick to notice that Anderson was bleeding when the cameraman focused on his trousers where stains of blood were evidently visible. The pictures and videos of the incident are making rounds on the internet, with Anderson receiving praises from all corners for his dedication.
Here, watch the video of Anderson getting injured:

Meanwhile, talking about the performance of the Indian cricket team, they were all out for 191 runs on day 1 of the 4th Test match. While Virat went on to score his half-century with 50-tuns off 96 balls, however, it was the performance of Shardul Thakur that stole the show with his terrific batting performances. Team India would have been in a dire situation if Shardul Thakur hadn’t come to their rescue and scored runs there. He scored a sensational 57 off 36 and He took the total of the Indian side a bit highest.
England cricketers produced another stunning performance winning the toss with Chris Woakes taking four wickets and Ollie Robinson, taking 3 wickets in the game. Besides them, James Anderson and Craig Overton also picked one wicket each.
