England are set to face Sri Lanka in a two-match Test series
Meanwhile, Anderson is set to miss out the Test series against Sri Lanka starting next month due to injury. The veteran pacer is still recovering from a cracked rib injury which he suffered during the second Test against South Africa in Cape Town.
Anderson, who has etched his name into the record books by playing 151 Tests for the ‘Three Lions’, has 584 scalps under his belt. The 37-year-old has 28 five-wicket hauls to his name and is touted to be nearing the latter stage of his career.
Broad, on the other hand, has been included in the squad which is slated to encounter Sri Lanka from Match 19. Earlier, there were reports that Broad will also be sidelined from the Sri Lanka series along with Anderson. However, the 33-year-old is expected to steer the English bowling force against Sri Lanka along with the likes of Chris Woakes and Mark Wood. In an illustrious career spanning over 138 Tests, the lanky pacer has 485 wickets to his name.
The first Test will take place in Galle (Mar 19-Mar 23), while the second game will be played in Colombo (Mar 27-Mar 31).
