India will retaliate for sure: Anderson

Nottingham, JUly 27: India might have been humiliated in the series opener at Lord's but England pace spearhead James Anderson expects the wounded visitors to make a strong comeback in the second cricket Test between the two sides, starting Friday at Trent Bridge.

The numero uno Test team in the world, India lost the first Test to England by a whopping 196 runs and Anderson said the home team would like to mantain the pressure on the Indians in the second game of the four-match series.

"When you lose a Test, as a professional there's a fire inside you. You don't want that to happen again. I'm sure, India would comeback harder in the next game but we would do everything possible on Friday to be right on the money," said Anderson, whose came up with a five-wicket haul in India''s second innings at Lord's.

And come Friday, Anderson is again expected to play a key role at Trent Bridge, where he boasts of an awesome record.

"It generally swings here but you get into a game thinking it wouldn't swing. If it does, it's a bonus," remarked the lanky right-arm pacer, who has 28 wickets from four Tests at this venue at a staggering average of 15.89, which includes four five-wicket and one 10-wicket hauls.

As a matter of fact, Anderson also has the record of dismissing Sachi Tendulkar six times in Test matches -- a feat no other bowler has managed in the last 22 years.

"I don't bowl any differently to him (Tendulkar). He is obviously a key wicket for us to get out but there are 10 other batsmen to be dismissed.
