Lancashire and England bowler Jimmy Anderson has sustained a stress fracture in the right shoulder blade, which he sustained in the third Investec Test match against Sri Lanka at Lord’s earlier this month.

Due to the nature of the injury, Jimmy's availability for the Pakistan Test series, commencing on July 14, will be determined following ongoing management and review by both the ECB and Lancashire’s medical teams.

He will miss Lancashire’s Specsavers County Championship matches against Middlesex commencing on Sunday at Lord’s and against Nottinghamshire at Trent Bridge starting on July 3.
