Broad confirms Anderson's injury frustration
Stuart Broad says James Anderson apologised to the England bowlers after injury limited his action in the first Ashes Test so far.
The 37-year-old Anderson only managed four overs against Australia on the opening day of the first Test at Edgbaston, with a calf injury being the cause of the problem.
Broad, who took 5-86 as England managed to bowl the Aussies out for 284 on Thursday, confirmed Anderson was frustrated after the first day and apologised to the rest of the bowling attack for his limited input.
"He is a bit quiet and a bit frustrated," Broad told BBC Radio 5 Live. "He came up to the bowlers and said sorry, but there is nothing to be sorry about.
"We don't know the full extent yet. All we can hope is the news is better than we expect."
England will start Friday on 10-0, as they trail the Baggy Greens by 274.
