Root defends decision to include Anderson at Edgbaston
England skipper Joe Root opined on Anderson's inclusion. "It was a group decision to select him. He passed every fitness test, we went about it how you normally would. It's one of those freak things, he pulled up in the middle of a game."
England will replace Anderson with 2019 World Cup hero Jofra Archer. The 24-year-old is in line to make his Ashes debut at Lord's. Archer will be raring to have a crack at Australia and make things count in Anderson's absence.
