London: England pacer James Anderson has said "doubts" surfaced in his mind about bowling in the wake of Australian batsman Phillip Hughes's death.

Hughes was struck by a bouncer in a domestic match Nov 25 and died two days later from its effects.

"In the week after, I was having huge doubts about how I'd go about bowling and whether I'd want to bowl the short ball," Anderson was quoted as saying by bbc.com Tuesday.

Anderson participated in England XI's 216-run win against Australian Capital Territory XI Monday, ahead of the tri-series Down Under also involving India.

Anderson, however, said he doesn't see bowlers around the world changing their approach.

"I don't see it changing the way bowlers go about their business," the 32-year-old said.

"It was a freak accident and a huge tragedy, and the game has got to carry on. I've heard a lot of Australians say that's what Phillip would have wanted."

Anderson is in England's World Cup squad.
