England veteran bowler James Anderson still feels that he is up for the challenge to continue playing Test cricket, despite a lack of clarity about what the future holds for him.

Anderson was left out of England’s team for the March tour of the West Indies, where they lost 1-0 in the three-match Test series. Stuart Broad, a fellow veteran, was also ruled out of the squad.

In an interview with Manchester Evening News, Anderson stated that his selection in England’s Test squad is “out of my control” and that his focus would remain on “bowling as well as he possibly can”.

“I’ve stopped trying to make sense of it and just put it to one side,” said Anderson. “It was completely out of my control. I’ve got to focus on what I can control and that is bowling as well as I possibly can.

“It feels a bit strange at the minute. I’m still centrally contracted but I’ve not had too much feedback from them because a lot is up in the air in terms of director of cricket and head coach. I have just been working with Glenn [Chapple, Lancashire’s head coach] and Sam [Byrne, physio] here, just trying to figure out what the best way forward is.”

In August of last year, the pacer, who will turn 40 in July this year, passed India’s Anil Kumble to become the third-highest wicket-taker in Test history.

He is still devoted to maintaining his playing career, despite the fact that he has reached the point in his career where he must carefully control his workload.
