Anderson was one of the most sought after players during the IPL auction after he broke the world record for the fastest One Day International (ODI) century last year.

In the end, the defending champions the Mumbai Indians acquired his services for a fee of Rs 4.50 crore (750,000 dollars).

"There's no fracture, no break and we're very happy with how the injury is going," Anderson was quoted by the <i>Fairfax NZ News</i>.

"The ligaments are all fine too; everything else is good to go. Everything went well and the news was all positive," he said.

Anderson returned to Auckland after dislocating a finger on his right hand during their match against Sri Lanka, which triggered speculation about whether he will be able to participate in this year's event, which starts on April 16 in the United Arab Emirates.
