James Anderson hopes his vast experience can help him compensate for a drop in pace over the remaining years of his career. Vente Nike Free Pas Cher .Anderson, who turned 34 over the weekend, returned to the Test team at Old Trafford with a performance that showed his control and skills remain undimmed by age or injury. But it was noticeable that his average bowling speed in the game - about 81mph - was some way down on his peak.While Anderson hopes he was simply rusty and that he will be able to generate more pace at Edgbaston, he accepts that he may be at the stage of his career where he has to rely more upon other attributes if he is to continue to flourish.I didnt feel like my speeds in Manchester were where they could be, Anderson said. I felt a bit like Matthew Hoggard at the end of his career when he slowed down a bit but his control was pretty good.With the skills I have, I can do a job even if my speeds did drop. With experience you can stay one step ahead in your head. It is like an old defender in football who might not have the pace of a quick striker but hes two steps ahead of him upstairs.Anderson has been sidelined by several injuries over the last year or so. After sustaining a side strain during the Edgbaston Ashes Test 12 months ago, he missed the first Test of the series in South Africa due to a calf injury and then the Lords Test against Pakistan due to a shoulder injury.But, after a modest tour of South Africa, he was back to something approaching his best at the start of this English summer. He claimed 21 wickets in the three Tests against Sri Lanka at an average of just 10.80 apiece - albeit in helpful conditions at times - and remains the No. 2-rated bowler in the ICCs rankings for Test cricket. He is just one ranking point behind Indias R Ashwin.He denies that the relative glut of injuries are necessarily a reflection of ageing and suggests that he could emulate Glenn McGrath and play until he is 37 years old.The way I feel at the moment, mentally, Ive still got a hunger to play the game and a hunger to take wickets and help my team win matches, Anderson said. As long as Ive got that hunger Im going to keep working, keep improving and keep working on my fitness and if I get to 37 then great. I just try to concentrate on staying fit for the next game.I thought I bowled well against Sri Lanka. Im not sure its the best Ive ever bowled but I felt in really good form and I just wanted to build on it, but the injury meant it wasnt possible.Fitness wise I keep working hard. My practice over the years has gone from searching for perfection to just doing as little as possible. The bare minimum. But when I do practise I try to make sure its absolute quality rather than going through the motions. If I dont practise much I make sure what I do do is to the highest quality possible.The England selectors took a lot of criticism for their decision not to risk Anderson in the first Test of this series at Lords. Although he was fit to bowl in the nets ahead of the game and subsequently played in part of Lancashires Championship match against Durham, he now admits it was probably wise not to rush him back into the Test team before he had gained match fitness after his shoulder injury. He hopes that, having had that Championship game and the Test in Manchester, he should be somewhere near his best at Edgbaston.Looking back, without having had any game time before that first Test, it was probably wise to get some overs under my belt before I came back into the Test side, Anderson said. I think it was probably the right decision.There was some rustiness in Manchester. I bowled 20-odd overs at Southport after four weeks out of the game, and then at Lords with the weather before the game I only bowled six overs outside so there was a bit of rustiness. But now Ive got that match practice under my belt hopefully I can build on that and my speeds go up rather than down. The age Im at, four or five weeks without bowling shouldnt make me lose my form that much.As Anderson matures, so his role within the squad may start to change. It has been noticeable over recent months that Chris Woakes, in particular, has started to use the wobble-seam delivery demonstrated with such success by Anderson and, at times, started to hide his grip of the ball until the point of delivery so that batsmen cannot anticipate which way it will swing.But Anderson denied that Woakes is the obvious inheritor of his art and insisted that he is learning from Englands younger bowlers as much as the other way around.Chris has a lot of skills, but I dont see us as similar bowlers, Anderson said. I dont know why. Hes got more pace, hes got a lovely action, thats what hes got going for him, a nice repetitive action that will help him for the rest of his career. Im not forcing myself upon him.As a group of bowlers we are talking to each other all the time. We are trying in the nets to give each other bits of information that are going to be useful whether its on the opposition, tactics or specifics in skills and we all learn from each other.I learn from Chris Woakes, Ive learnt from Steven Finn and Stuart Broad, we all pass information round to each other, its a really open forum and I think thats how it should be. I think thats how teams get better.Poor weather in Birmingham means the Test pitch may lack just a little of the carry that England enjoyed when defeating Australia a year ago. But the surface is still expected to provide some assistance to seamers, especially on the first morning and with the new ball, and little encouragement for spinners. As a result, England look highly likely to go into the game with four seamers and Moeen Ali as their main spinner. Nike Free Pas Cher .

HOUSTON -- Michael Cuddyer is still recovering from being plunked in the right forearm a couple of days ago, which makes doing many things uncomfortable. Luckily for the Colorado Rockies, swinging hardly hurts him at all. Cuddyer had three hits, including an RBI single in the ninth inning that gave Colorado a 2-1 win over the Houston Astros in interleague play on Tuesday. "Its sore. Theres no question its sore and swollen," Cuddyer said. "But fortunately the way I got hit the one thing that really doesnt bother me is swinging. Pretty much everything else, it doesnt feel great but swinging I dont really feel it all that much. I got really lucky in that sense." Troy Tulowitzki doubled off Houston closer Jose Veras (0-4) to start the ninth and advanced to third on a wild pitch. Cuddyer followed with his single, which sailed just out of reach of leaping third baseman Matt Dominguez. "It doesnt surprise me with Cuddy," manager Walt Weiss said. "Hes always looking to answer the bell. Hes a great pro. Twenty-four hours ago I wasnt sure that hed be playing this early, but hes going to find a way to get in the lineup." Tulowitzki had an RBI single in the first. Chris Carter tied it in the fourth with an RBI grounder. Colorado starter Jorge De La Rosa scattered five hits with one run over seven innings. He had won his previous four starts and finished the month 4-0 with a 2.08 ERA. Matt Belisle (2-2) threw a perfect eighth for the win. Closer Rafael Betancourt struck out two in the ninth for his 11th save. Houston starter Jordan Lyles yielded six hits and one run in a season-long seven innings. Wesley Wright took over and struck out two in a scoreless eighth before he was replaced by Veras. Manager Bo Porter was impressed with the work of his 22-year-old pitcher. "Jordan Lyles -- today is what you would call graduation," Porter said. "I think hes learned from his time last year. I think hes learned from early on this year, and he was able to make quality pitches to get himself out of some tough jams and got the big strikeout when he needed it." The Rockies won late a day after Houston got a 3-2 victory in 12 innings. "The bottom line is we found a waay to win a game and thats huge," Weiss said. Nike Free France. "Youve got to find ways to win those tight games. Weve been in a lot of tight games, weve been kicked in the stomach a few times because sometimes thats the reward you get for competing well and being in a lot of tight games. Youre going to lose some of those games. It was nice to find a way to win today." Dexter Fowler drew a walk to start the game and advanced to third on a single by Nolan Arenado. A one-out single by Tulowitzki put Colorado ahead. Fowler walked again to begin the third. Arenado reached on a forceout and eventually reached third, but was caught at the plate when shortstop Ronny Cedeno made a nice catch on Tulowitzkis fly and threw home. "Thats a great play. Not only the catch but the wherewithal to get rid of the ball at the speed at which he got rid of the ball and the accuracy of the throw," Porter said. "So, if thats in the Olympics youre judging it a 10." The Rockies had another chance to add onto their lead in the fourth when they loaded the bases with no outs. But Colorado came up empty when Lyles struck out Yorvit Torrealba and DJ LeMahieu grounded into a double play to end the inning. "Im just trying to get outs, really," Lyles said. "Just trying to put up good outing and not let our bullpen throw too many innings. Im just trying to do my job." De La Rosa hit two batters in the fourth. Carlos Corporan later scored when Arenado fielded Carters grounder to third base but threw it over Torrealbas head at the plate.
