James Anderson hoping to prove Ashes fitness in Ireland Test

James Anderson is hoping to prove his fitness for the Ashes in next week's historic one-off Test against Ireland. Anderson, England's record wicket-taker, has been sidelined with a torn calf muscle sustained playing for Lancashire at the beginning of this month. Starting next Wednesday, the Three Lions take on Ireland in a Test match for the first time at Lord's before launching the Ashes series against old foe Australia at Edgbaston on August 1.
