James Anderson, 24
Right-arm medium-fast bowler. 57 matches. 86 wickets @ 26.51, best bowling 4/25, economy rate 4.83, strike rate 32.90.
Made his initial impact in one-day cricket, producing a match-winning performance against Pakistan at the 2003 World Cup and taking the first one-day hat-trick by an England bowler at home later in the year against South Africa. As he showed in the tri-series he is capable of genuine pace and late swing but has been troubled by injuries and inconsistency, partly as a result of attempts to remodel a naturally whippy action to alleviate the strain on his back.
