Looks like Anderson went hard on the ball and wanted to get it out of the woods but the ball bounced back after hitting the tree and hit him straight in the face at point-blank range.

While his exploits in the Edgbaston Test match against India won him applause from all quarters, James Anderson had no such luck in the game of golf on Sunday.

Firstly, questions have to be asked about Anderson's initial tee shot as the 36-year-old is seen in a wooded area and standing over the ball, contemplating how he is going to get out of the trees. 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". The Burnley pacer picked up four wickets for England and kept the pressure on from the one end which didn't allow the Indian batsmen to score freely.

Snapchat is popular for private messaging, but most of the ads Snap sells accompany videos that are shared with a wider audience. After a tumultuous first year as a public company, Snap is starting to show some stability, despite the slowdown in user growth.


England fans would have been relieved as an injury to Anderson would have deal a massive blow to the team's chances of extending their lead in the second Test, starting August 9.

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.

The second Test will be played at Lord's where England haven't had a lot of success off late. Resuming the chase on the fourth day, India lost an early wicket in the form of Dinesh Karthik following which Kohli and Pandya built a steady 29-run partnership to steer India forward.
