Finding himself buried among some trees, Anderson tried to find his way back onto the fairway but smashed his shot into the root of a tree in front of him, the ball rebounding at a rate of knots straight into his face. Surely Golf is a sport James would stay away from, henceforth.

Fresh from the win against India in a heart wrenching test series which was wrapped early within fourth day, James with team mate Stuart Broad went to relax by playing Golf. Anderson later confirmed that the ball did hit him in the face.

As a tail-ender, Anderson has dodged quite a few bouncers with the bat in his hand, but on Sunday he had no time to react.

Jurgen Klopp dismisses defensive worries after Liverpool beat Torino
But Klopp believes his existing squad members, such as Jordan Henderson, will continue to play a pivotal role as they chase success on multiple fronts. "More consistency - we were not inconsistent, but we can be more consistent", he said.

Broad, who was there when the incident took place, uploaded the video on his official Twitter handle and said England's highest wicket-taker "is perfectly fine".

Luckily, no major damage was caused as Stuart Broad, who was also present at the venue, recorded the entire incident. The Burnley pacer picked up four wickets for England and kept the pressure on from the one end which didn't allow the Indian batsmen to score freely.

Anderson and Broad are expected to be rested for some of the Test series against India this summer but they have been named in the England squad for the second match at Lord's, which gets underway on Thursday. While India will have a lot to think as far as combinations are concerned, England has dropped Dawid Malan and all-rounder Ben Stokes for 2nd Test and replaced them with Ollie Pope and Chris Woakes.
