(Reuters) - England paceman James Anderson hopes to overcome a calf problem that forced him out of the Ashes series and will aim to return for their tours of New Zealand and South Africa later this year.

I bowled quite a lot for Lancashire at the start of the season and was in really good form before I got injured at an annoying time.” Anderson is targeting a comeback in November during the two-match test series in New Zealand, but said he was prepared to wait until the four-test tour of South Africa in December and January.



“I never like looking too far ahead, I just want to get my calf sorted and look to the next series to see if I can get myself fit for New Zealand and if not, then South Africa,” Anderson said.



“I’m just about getting over the disappointment ... looking ahead to what I can do in the future,” England’s top test wicket-taker with 575 victims told Sky Sports.

“I’m open-minded ... I’m going to try and investigate every possible avenue of what I need to do at my age to keep myself in good shape,” he added to British media.

The 37-year-old sustained the injury playing for Lancashire in July and managed only four overs in the opening test at Edgbaston before being ruled out of the five-match series.

England failed to regain the Ashes and trail Australia 2-1 heading into the final test starting at The Oval on Thursday.
