Anderson return to boost England

With the Aussies in complete and utter disarray following their second Test humiliation on home soil, a confident England side that find themselves favourites for the series win on odds comparison sites has received a timely boost as they look ahead to the third Test in Perth, which gets underway next Thursday. The welcome boost comes in the form of the news that James Anderson will be making a return to the team in good time to compete in what could easily turn out to be a decisive few days in the context of the 2010 Ashes series as a whole.

Anderson had returned home to England after the culmination of the successful second Test in order to be with his wife, who has just given birth to a baby girl, the couple’s second child. Although Anderson’s departure from Australian soil wasn’t exactly met with resounding joy from team director Andy Flower, who revealed his belief that the decision from the bowler was not “ideal”, he’ll surely be keen to prove to all those who doubt his choice of putting family over the sport that the effects on his body of the round-trip to England and back to Australia won’t put his chances of making an impact in Perth at risk, something that may well impact upon England’s fixed odds for the Test.

Concerns over Anderson’s preparations for the third Ashes test became even more widespread in light of Stuart Broad’s unfortunate injury but whether or not the bowler’s choice ends up backfiring, England need to keep their focus and determination intact in order to ensure that a good start does not go to waste and they can travel back to a warm welcome on English soil complete with the famous little urn that English cricket fans so admire.
