Former England captain Michael Vaughan has said that James Anderson will be the key for England in the remaining two Tests. Anderson, has performed exceptionally well with the ball so far in the tournament, and the recent hearing where he could potentially face a ban was a cause of concern for the England team management. Thankfully for them, Anderson was cleared of all charges and will play the remaining matches.

“Anderson has got the number of Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni. They are all struggling to face him because they do not know which way the ball is going to move.” Vaughan said in his column for The Telegraph.

“He does not need to say much because he is such a skilful bowler. Even at Lord’s, when he was not at his best, you always felt something could happen when he was bowling.” he added.

Vaughan was also all praise for Alastair Cook, and admitted that he was wrong in saying that he needed a bit of rest before the start of the fourth Test match. Vaughan also said that England’s batting was very crucial for their success, as the bowlers could only be effective if the batsman had posted runs on the board.
