James Anderson to have scan on groin injury

James Anderson will have a scan on Monday (May 22) after injuring his groin in Lancashire's County Championship match with Yorkshire. The injury could put in doubt his participation in the first Test of the summer against South Africa at Lord's beginning on July 7.

Although Anderson will not bowl in the rest of the Roses match, it is believed the injury is not as bad as first feared. With six weeks remaining before the first Test against South Africa, Anderson should get enough time to recover. England's selectors will be unlikely to risk their first choice bowler(437 wickets) in Test cricket should he be unable to take part in some Championship cricket ahead of the first Test.
