IND vs ENG, 2nd Test: England’s injury crisis worsens; After Stuart Broad, James Anderson also doubtful for Lord’s Test- England’s injury crisis has deepened with James Anderson also doubtful for the 2nd Test against India at Lord’s. Earlier, Stuart Broad had suffered an ankle injury putting his place in jeopardy. Pacer Saqib Mahmood has been called up as his cover.

As per ESPN Cricinfo, James Anderson missed England’s training session on Wednesday at Lord’s as he is suffering from a tight quad. England pacer Saqib Mahmood, who plays limited-overs cricket for England, has been added as cover for Stuart Broad in England’s squad for the Lord’s Test. Meanwhile, spinner Dom Bess is set to leave the squad and return to Yorkshire, confirmed England cricket on Twitter.

“Lancashire seamer Saqib Mahmood has been added to the squad as cover for the second Test against India. Spinner Dom Bess will leave the squad and return to Yorkshire this morning,” the ECB said in an official statement.
