London: According to a report in The Guardian, England Test coach Brendon McCullum visited England from New Zealand and during a golf match told Anderson that he is now looking towards the future and wants to build a squad for the 2025-26 Ashes. .

Anderson went on a tour of India earlier this year and became the third bowler in the world to take 700 Test wickets there. However, he bowled only 110 overs in seven innings. He also struggled against Australia during the last English summer, taking just five wickets at a poor average of 85.40 in four Test matches.

Anderson will turn 42 during the West Indies home Test series in July. He could then retire during the Test series against Sri Lanka, the first match of which will be played at Anderson’s home ground Old Trafford in late August.

Anderson can give information about her future during the England-Pakistan Women’s T20 match on Saturday. However, the England Cricket Board (ECB) has still refused to say anything about this.

Earlier this year, England men’s team managing director Rob Key named bowlers like Brayden Carse, Josh Tongue, Matt Potts, Gus Atkinson, Matt Fisher, Saqib Mahmood and John Turner and said that he wanted the fast bowlers to be more effective. A new generation came and took the team forward.

At present Anderson is not playing county cricket. He had said that due to workload management, he would be able to play any county match only till the end of May.
