Give the debutants time - Anderson
- From the section Cricket
England bowler James Anderson says that two debutant bowlers needed to be given more time, despite Australia setting a substantial score in the first day of the final Test at the Oval.
England surprisingly picked Chris Woakes and Simon Kerrigan.
Australia reached 307-4 by the close of play, but Anderson insisted that it was impossible to say after just one day whether the line-up had worked or not.
When asked whether Australian coach Darren Lehmann's branding of Stuart Broad as a 'cheat' had given England extra motivation, Anderson dismissed the idea and said they "didn't need any extra motivation".
