Anderson doubtful for tri-series opener
Fast bowler James Anderson is a doubt for England's first match of their ODI tri-series, which takes place at the SCG on 16 January, against hosts Australia with a knee injury.
Anderson was rested for England's second warm-up game against an Australian Prime Ministers XI as a precaution after getting through their first tour match without any problems.
England captain Eoin Morgan told reporters that Anderson was rested for the game against the Prime Ministers XI, which England won by 60 runs, to give his knee a good chance to recover for the tri-series opener.
Morgan told reporters in Sydney: "It was more managing his workload coming back from injury. We decided that he wouldn't be able to play three games in a week – and obviously the most important game is tomorrow.
"So in order for him to be fit for selection, we needed to up his workload in the nets. And if he had have played yesterday he wouldn't have pulled up that well.
"He will go through a full practice today and we'll see how he pulls up tomorrow morning."
The tri-series. which also involves India, is being used as preparation for the World Cup, which will be co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand, starting on 14 February.
