England vs India – Edgbaston, Birmingham, UK: England are in a shambles, with Jonny Bairstow and Ben Stokes in charge after losing their five-wicket haul in under 100 runs. Meanwhile, England’s experienced bowler James Anderson has expressed his comment. Anderson called on England’s batsmen to play with aggression as they look to make their way into the rearranged fifth Test against India at Edgbaston. It is going to be difficult though and it will be interesting to see whether England manage to follow the same aggressive path.

The hosts were at 84-5 on the second day of the Test when the game ended on the second day of play. They are still 332 runs behind and need 133 runs to avoid follow-on, with Jonny Bairstow sharing a 12-run stand with skipper Ben Stokes. Both the England openers could not once again give a decent start.

“The way we have come out of difficult situations is trying to put pressure on the opposition. I think our best defense tomorrow will be attack. Our batsmen are naturally aggressive,” Anderson told reporters on Saturday.”

“We have to try to work our way back and put some pressure on them. We’re against it, but we’ve been in this situation before this summer and we’ve come back,” he said.

Anderson also came to the rescue of England teammate Stuart Broad, who bowled the costliest over of Test cricket, conceding 35 runs in eight balls.

James Anderson said, “Stuart is an experienced player and I don’t think it will affect him. I thought he was a bit unlucky, with top edges flying everywhere. ”

“Another day one of those top edges goes into a straight hand. There was a chance down at fine leg. If that’s taken, no one talks about the over.”
