England fast bowler James Anderson has today become a father for the second time.

His wife Daniella has given birth to a girl, weighing 7lb 9oz. The couple have yet to announce a name.

After helping England win the second Ashes Test, the 28-year-old made the 10,000-mile journey to England from Australia for the birth, arriving on Wednesday.

Anderson will return to the team in time to play in the third Test at Perth, which starts on Thursday.
