Anderson, who is an avid golfer, was taking a swing on an uneven surface surrounded by trees at the course when the ball somehow hit him flush on his face instead of going straight in the direction of the shot.

Fresh off the thrilling win in the first Test against India at Edgbaston, James Anderson made a decision to celebrate the occasion by playing some golf. Surely Golf is a sport James would stay away from, henceforth.

As a tail-ender, Anderson has dodged quite a few bouncers with the bat in his hand, but on Sunday he had no time to react. But the ball rebounded and hit his face. England's all-time leading wicket-taker in Tests only had himself to blame - he was hacking the ball out of the rough amidst snaking tree roots suggests he may have sliced his previous shot as sharply as one of his bending inswingers.

India will now look to bounce back when they take on England in the second match of the series, beginning August 9 at the Lord's.

Brooks also alleges that he was sacked when he wouldn't agree not to sue, according to Associated Press reports . Representatives for Furman, Depp, and Good Film Productions did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Anderson took four wickets to help England to a 31-run victory in the first Test at Edgbaston. The England fast bowler held his cheek and was seemingly in pain but Broad revealed with an Instagram post that his teammate was "perfectly fine".

Stuart Broad and Mohammed Shami are the two bowlers inside the top-20 who have headed in the opposite direction in the latest ICC Rankings.

Dawid Malan has been dropped from the squad while star all-rounder Ben Stokes will miss the Test as he is facing a court hearing next week in Bristol.
