England pace bowling stalwart James Anderson will likely miss the third and final Test against New Zealand at Leeds from June 23 as he was reportedly suffering from a leg discomfort on the final morning of the Trent Bridge Test. 


A report in Daily Mail has said that Anderson, 39, could miss the third Test more on account of taking rest rather than injury, given the busy summer schedule ahead, including the Test against India.
