Right-arm fast-medium bowler James Anderson has been left out of the ODI series against Australia. While key players Alastair Cook, Ian Bell, Stuart Broad and Graeme Swann all of them has been also rested for the five game series.
Anderson says “An Ashes series is emotionally and physically draining – you do feel it.”
“There are not many five-Test series anymore and with a couple of back-to back Tests in there as well you feel the aches and pains and it takes a lot out of you emotionally.
“It gets to a point where you just want to let things soak in, take everything in and have a rest.”
