Sunday Express - - Front Page - By Jim Holden

JIMMY AN­DER­SON bowled Eng­land into a com­mand­ing po­si­tion in the Fourth Test against South Africa with a dev­as­tat­ing four-wicket burst yes­ter­day.

In­spired by bowl­ing from the James An­der­son End, re-named in his hon­our at Old Traf­ford just be­fore this game, the fast bowler had a fab­u­lous day to re­mem­ber.

“I didn’t feel any pres­sure be­cause of the name, but it just seemed like I couldn’t bowl badly to­day,” said An­der­son af­ter his 4-33 dis­play.

“The at­mos­phere was fan­tas­tic to­day and I was thrilled to get a few wick­ets.”

South Africa were 220-9 at the close of the sec­ond day, a lead of 142 runs for Eng­land.

Jonny Bairstow was out for 99 when Eng­land bat­ted, and he said: “I have joined a spe­cial club I sup­pose. I was pretty an­noyed at the time when I got out, but it’s a good feel­ing to help us get into a strong po­si­tion in the match.”
