Anderson hints at playing in next Ashes
England's James Anderson feels he can still do a job and the seamer has not ruled out playing in the 2021-22 Ashes Down Under.
The 37-year-old looked set to lead the attack against Australia this summer and his battle with prolific Aussie batsman Steve Smith would have been key.
However, after pulling up with a recurrence of his calf injury after just four overs of the first Test, the Lancastrian played no further part in the series.
Smith has gone on to dominate, with the Baggy Greens having already retained the famous urn with one match still to play.
Questions have been raised about Anderson's future and whether he wants to go on, but the man with 575 five-day wickets to his name appears positive.
"I don't feel 37. I feel in as good a shape as I ever have," he told BBC Sport. "I don't see why not (play in the next Ashes). I still love playing the game and as long as I've got that hunger, I will try everything I possibly can to do that.
"I feel in great condition other than the calf, so it's a case of looking to the next challenge and trying to get on a winter tour."
England face New Zealand in two Tests in November before a four-Test tour to South Africa over Christmas and into the new year.
