Star English pacer James Anderson is currently considered to be one of the best exponents of swing bowling in the cricket world. However, his golf swing has ended up in disaster for him.
After an emphatic 31-runs win over International Cricket Council (ICC) Test ranking table toppers India at Edgbaston, Anderson and teammate Stuart Broad were spotted playing golf on their day-off.
However, it seems Anderson’s golf’s outing did not go as planned as he struck the ball off a tree and onto his face and his buddy Broad started laughing after the incident. Broad also took to micro-blogging site Twitter to share the video of the incident.
Here is the video:

As per reports published in the British media, the English pacers were playing golf at the swish 27-hole Stoke Park golf course in Buckinghamshire. However, lucky for England, the incident did not lead to an injury. The news that he is fine was confirmed by Broad.
Here is how Twitterati reacted to the incident:
Has it put him off golf? 🙏🏼

Akways knew Jimmy still had it in him to hit someone on head, didn’t expect it to be himself.
