Anderson barred from bowling for encroaching pitch

BIRMINGHAM: England’s leading fast bowler James Anderson has been barred from bowling in first innings of third Test at Edgbaston for encroaching on the wicket despite warning.

Anderson was earlier warned thrice for the same reason, and was eventually got out of attack when he repeated the act.

His heal clipped the red zone. Tight call for the final warning.

Anderson is the only bowler in England history who has been taken out of the attack for the second time.  He was first stopped from bowling during Johannesburg Test in January 2016 against South Africa!
