Johannesburg, July 24 (ANI): England fast bowler James Anderson has revealed that the team is optimistic about Kevin Pietersen's fitness in time for the next week's third Ashes Test at Old Trafford.
According to sport24, Pietersen, arguably England's most talented batsman, was off the field when the side completed a 347-run win over Australia in the second Test at Lord's on Sunday to take a 2-0 lead in the five-match series.
Anderson said that as far as he knew it was only a strain and Kevin could be fine for the third Test.
Meanwhile, Pietersen tweeted on Monday that he was stuck on a sofa tightly fastened to an ice machine, trying to gain back fitness. (ANI)
