Anderson would love to play limited overs cricket

England seamer James Anderson says he would love to have another chance to play limited-overs cricket for his country, despite not playing in the national side's colour-clothing for more than a year.

The 33-year-old's last ODI appearance came at last year's World Cup while the last time he pulled on a T20I shirt was in 2009.

England's limited-overs team have undergone somewhat of a renaissance since that World Cup campaign in which Anderson was apart of, thanks to Australian coach Trevor Bayliss who has employed a new exciting brand of cricket.

The Three Lions also reached the final of the recent World T20 in India, going down in the last over to the West Indies in Kolkata.

Asked if he still wanted to play limited-overs cricket, Anderson told the BBC's Stumped: "I'd like it to. (But) I don't know where we are, I've not spoken to the coach (Trevor Bayliss) or (director of cricket) Andrew Strauss for a while about that.

"The progression of the One Day and T20 sides has been fantastic over the last 12 months. If they think having me along would help the team, then that's great.

"I'd love to have another chance to play 50-over or 20-over cricket, but we'll just have to wait and see."
