On the cricket front, James Anderson admitted that the Edgbaston pitch used for the 1st Ashes Test was "like kryptonite". He also stated that if similar pitches were to be used for the remaining games in the series, he would be 'done'. "That pitch was like kryptonite for me. There was not much swing, no reverse swing, no seam movement, no bounce and no pace. I've tried over the years to hone my skills so I can bowl in any conditions but everything I tried made no difference. I felt like I was fighting an uphill battle. It's a long series and hopefully, I can contribute at some point, but if all the pitches are like that I'm done in the Ashes series," Anderson was quoted in his column in The Telegraph.
