2 Players who could replace James Anderson if he is ruled out of Ashes 2023
With Ashes 2023 around the corner, England has suffered a major blow as Premier pacer James Anderson has suffered a groin injury. The pacer while playing a county match for Lancashire injured himself and was immediately taken off the field and then didn’t take part in the rest of the game.
Although the seriousness of the injury is yet to be known, it is likely that he will miss a few games of the Ashes 2023 as well. In this piece, we will take a look at 2 Players who could replace James Anderson if he is ruled out of Ashes 2023:

With James Anderson likely to be ruled out of the Ashes, Olly Stone might be the potential candidate to replace him in the English squad. The right-arm pacer has been part of the English setup for a while but hasn’t played a lot of games due to the lack of space in the team. But he might get an opportunity this time around. In the three-Test that he has played, his record is great as he has taken 10 wickets at an average of 19.4
Matthew Potts is another pacer that might be in contention to replace James Anderson in the squad if he gets ruled out of the Ashes. The young pacer has bowled exceptionally well in the limited opportunities that he has got and also has taken wickets at a good rate. He can turn out to be a valuable asset for the side. In the 5 games that he has played, he has taken 20 wickets at an average of around 28.
