England quick James Anderson admits he had “doubts” about bowling following the death of Australian batsman Phillip Hughes.
Hughes died in late November after being struck in the back of the neck by a short ball in a Sheffield Shield match between New South Wales and South Australia at the SCG.
“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 told BBC Radio 5 live.
However Anderson, who will travel to Australia and New Zealand ahead of the Cricket World Cup, says the game must continue on as normal.
“I don’t see it changing the way bowlers go about their business,” Anderson said.
“It was a freak accident and a huge tragedy, and the game has got to carry on.
“I’ve heard a lot of Aussies say that’s what Phillip would have wanted.”
England open its World Cup campaign against Australia on February 14 at the MCG.
