England fast bowler James Anderson has swapped the cricket nets for the facilities at the training ground of Premier League champions Manchester City in a bid to recover from a calf injury, the country’s cricket board said on Wednesday.

Anderson sustained the injury playing for Lancashire in July and managed only four overs in the opening Ashes test against Australia at Edgbaston.

He was eventually ruled out of the five-match series that ended 2-2 as Australia retained the urn.

England play New Zealand in two Tests in November and December but Anderson, the country’s leading wicket-taker with 575 test wickets, is targeting a return when they tour South Africa for a four-Test series starting at the end of December.
