James Anderson says he will be fit to play in England's Test tour of India next month, even though he is unlikely to start bowling again for another 3 weeks.

Anderson admitted his frustration at missing out on the Bangladesh leg of England's campaign, following a stress fracture of his left shoulder blade that caused him to miss the first Test against Pakistan in July.

He also took offence at the suggestion that - at the age of 34 and with 463 Test wickets to his name in a 14-year England career - his body is beginning to struggle with the intensity of his international workload.
