England fast bowler extraordinaire Jimmy Anderson could be forgiven for smiling this afternoon as the Test Match at Edgbaston was severely diluted with rain.
‘Rested’ by Andrew’s Strauss & Flower for the third and final test against The West Indies, Anderson was clearly unhappy.
‘I`ve had a bit of a strop, yes, I hate missing any game. I know the management think it makes sense but I want to play. I want wickets. So when everyone had left the room, I’ve done one of my Burnley raindances and it’s only come up trumps. I’m made up. I hope it rains for 5 days.’
A spokesperson said ‘ It`s just a coincidence. Jimmy can’t influence the weather.’
