James Anderson avoids injury after being struck by golf ball

England worldwide cricketer James Anderson had a solid outing against India at Edgbaston during the first Test, taking four wickets over two innings and helping the team register a 31-run victory on Saturday.

The speedster recently tried his hand at the sport, practising his swing during a warm-up round at Stoke Park ahead of England's golf day.

With Broad filming from behind, Anderson swung hard in an attempt to get his ball back on the pristine fairway, but the ball veered directly up into his face.

But, in the caption, Broad clarified that England's all-time leading wicket-taker in Test cricketer is perfectly fine, much to the relief of his teammates and fans.

Firstly, questions have to be asked about Anderson's initial tee shot as the 36-year-old is seen in a wooded area and standing over the ball, contemplating how he is going to get out of the trees.

Meanwhile, England are 1-0 up in the five-match Test series against India.

England won the first match by 31 runs at Edgbaston last Saturday with Anderson finishing with 4 wickets while Broad picked up a couple in the second innings. While India will have a lot to think as far as combinations are concerned, England has dropped Dawid Malan and all-rounder Ben Stokes for 2nd Test and replaced them with Ollie Pope and Chris Woakes.

Both Anderson and Broad played key roles in the thrilling match.
