England head coach Chris Silverwood is still prepared to rest James Anderson for the second Test against India, despite the paceman's remarkable display of reverse swing in the series opener.
Anderson emerged as England's key man as they made their final push for victory in Chennai, taking three wickets for just six runs in a virtually unplayable spell.
With the next match taking place from Saturday, the temptation to let Anderson loose again is obvious, but it is one the tourists are ready to resist.
At 38, Anderson's fitness levels are said to be better than ever, but with the exhausting heat and packed fixtures, the policy of rotating him with Stuart Broad remains on the table.
"It is hard (to leave Anderson out), he is a class act. But you'll have to wait and see," Silverwood said.
"Broady didn't play in the last game and we've many bowlers here who we could play at any given point.
"I'm not reluctant to change a winning team now if it's the best thing to do for the players, the team and the longevity of it."
If Anderson does make way, he has at least left the bar impressively high for Broad.
"Jimmy blew the game open for us, it was quite remarkable to watch," said Silverwood.
"It just shows what a class act he is."
As for the man himself, Anderson is ready to go again if required but will understand if he finds himself cheering from the side.
"When a batsman gets in rhythm and form, they want to keep batting and keep that that rhythm going, and it's the same for a bowler," Anderson said.
"You want to keep that going if possible, but I'm very aware that we've got four Test matches in quick succession here."
