England’s Anderson escapes injury after being struck by golf ball

Finding himself buried among some trees, Anderson tried to find his way back onto the fairway but smashed his shot into the root of a tree in front of him, the ball rebounding at a rate of knots straight into his face.

While his exploits in the Edgbaston Test match against India won him applause from all quarters, James Anderson had no such luck in the game of golf on Sunday.

Watch the moment England bowler James Anderson nearly suffered a nasty injury while playing golf with Stuart Broad.

Broad revealed that Anderson emerged unscathed, but the all-time highest wicket-taker for England will be a little embarrassed after proving his golfing skills are nowhere close to his bowling skills.

Anderson immediately covered his face with his palm but only had himself to blame for the blow. Anderson's duel with Indian skipper Virat Kohli was also on display during the ongoing Test series between India and England.

Kim Kardashian and Ex-Assistant Stephanie Shepherd Deny Feud
Kim made the name Instagram official so there is no going back! "But like she's so girly". "It's so hard for me", Kardashian said. But it is clear Kim is still not sold, saying: 'Chicago just looks really long to me and doesn't flow, so I call her Chi.

On the other hand, Stuart Broad set the tone for England in the second innings by dismissing India openers Murali Vijay and Shikhar Dhawan cheaply.

The match was a thriller as the fortunes fluctuated from one team to another throughout the course of the match.

The hosts have announced two changes to their 13-player squad, bringing in Ollie Pope and Chris Woakes in place of Dawid Malan and Ben Stokes, respectively.

Both Anderson and Broad played key roles in the thrilling match.
