Veteran seamer James Anderson will replace Jamie Overton for England in the rescheduled fifth test against India at Edgbaston, the team said on Thursday.

Anderson, England’s record wicket-taker in test cricket, missed the third test against New Zealand with an ankle injury.

His duel with India stalwart Virat Kohli will be an interesting sub-plot of the match.

With Ben Foakes recovering from COVID-19, Kent’s Sam Billings was retained as the wicketkeeper for the match beginning on Friday.
