Anderson replaces Bopara for Twenty20


jamesJames Anderson has been called into England’s ICC World Twenty20 squad as a replacement for Ravi Bopara, who was ruled out earlier this week with a broken thumb sustained during the fifth ODI against India.

Anderson’s impressive one-day form in the current series will have counted in his favour as the selectors opted for a strike bowler instead of an allrounder. Anderson currently holds the record for the most expensive figures in international Twenty20, his four overs against Australia at Sydney costing 64.

It had been expected that Dimitri Mascarenhas would slot into Bopara’s place, especially after hitting five sixes in five balls against India at The Oval. However, England may need another replacement with Andrew Flintoff’s position still uncertain as his ankle problem is assessed.
