- Lancashire confirm injury was sustained against Somerset
- Assessments suggest Anderson is likely to recover for Ashes
A month before the start of the Ashes and a little over a fortnight before England face Ireland in their first Test of the summer, Jimmy Anderson has joined a disconcertingly expanding list of injury doubts after a scan confirmed that he had suffered a mild strain to his right groin during Lancashire’s County Championship draw with Somerset.
The injury was significant enough to keep the 40-year-old off the pitch for the final three days of the game, after he had bowled 14 overs in the first. He had a scan on Saturday night, with the news representing a downbeat conclusion to a week in which Jofra Archer was recalled from the IPL because of continued issues with his right elbow and Olly Stone was ruled out for up to six weeks with a hamstring injury.
