James Anderson returns to action for Lancashire 2nd XI

James Anderson bowled five overs for Lancashire's second XI as he began his bid for an Ashes return on Tuesday morning. The England seamer missed last week's second Test against Australia at Lord's after suffering a recurrence of his calf problem during the first match of the series at Edgbaston. The 37-year-old has also been ruled out of the third Test at Headingley this week but hopes to be back in contention for the fourth match at his home ground Old Trafford, which begins on September 4.
