NEW DELHI: Having wrapped up the first Test against India inside four days, England cricketers were enjoying an off-day but things didn’t turn out well for their pace spearhead James Anderson.
While playing golf, Anderson went for a big shot in order to get out of the woods but the ball ricocheted off a tree and hit him straight in the face much to the amusement of his teammate and new-ball partner Stuart Broad who shared the video of the incident on Twitter.
In the tweet, Broad said Anderson was ‘perfectly fine’.
