England's most successful bowler, James Anderson, is hoping for a return to the team after missing the third and final test against New Zealand.

James Anderson has hit back at Joe Root for his statement against bowlers. The veteran pacer feels England bowlers do not deserve to be blamed for team’s defeat in the second Ashes Test. Root had stated that bowlers should have bowled a fuller length.

After losing two consecutive Test matches, England are staring at a series whitewash. The third match starts in Melbourne on Sunday.

England’s all-time leading Test wicket-taker said the side had to improve with the willow after scoring just 236 and 192 at Adelaide Oval. The visitors managed 147 and 297 at the Gabba.

“Batters didn’t bat well on the flattest Adelaide wicket ever and the pink did the least it has ever done in a day-night Test,” he wrote in his column for The Telegraph.

“From a bowlers point of view we tried our best and could have bowled fuller at times. We created quite a few chances that were not taken. We have to work out things together as a group.”
