New Delhi: Embroiled in a controversy, involving Team India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja, England's fast bowler James Anderson has a dual personality which brings out a different Anderson on and off the field.  


Anderson, who can overtake Sir Ian Botham's record of maximum test wickets, has admitted to have sought the help of a sports psychologist.

According to daily mail he likes himself to be called as Jimmy on the cricket field but off the field he is ‘James' Anderson. He confessed about his case of split personality with a sports psychologist.

His teammates feel that he performs only when he is Jimmy. Well, then he should permanently change his name to Jimmy Anderson instead of James. It means he was James Anderson not Jimmy in the past one year of England cricket.

There is no doubt that his aggression had gone overboard during 1st test at Trent Bridge when he pushed and abused Ravindra Jadeja and later threatened to break his teeths.

Anderson was dramatically cleared of abusing and pushing Ravindra Jadeja last week by ICC for lack of solid evidence.

Though he has been let off by the ICC but fear of suspension will be playing on his mind when takes to field for the fourth test Thursday. Now it would be interesting to see Jimmy continues to ride over Anderson or James creeps in save Anderson.
