London: A towel-clad James Anderson was frantically searching for his clothes when British Prime Minister David Cameron walked into the England cricket team`s dressing room to congratulate the players for toppling India as the world`s number one Test side.

England lead the four-match series 3-0 and on day two of the ongoing final Test on Friday, Cameron came to the home team`s dressing room for a chat with the players.

Anderson, England`s strike pacer, had just come out of shower after the day`s proceedings and recalled how he searched for his clothes after finding Cameron amid his teammates.

"They say strange things can happen after a shower. I emerged from mine after Friday`s play in only a towel to find the Prime Minister in our dressing room.”

"David Cameron was congratulating us on our recent achievements and I was looking for some clothes to put on. He said he was a big cricket fan," Anderson wrote in a leading daily.

Anderson also spoke of a new delivery that he has added to his stock.

"The truth behind the `wobble seam` ball can be revealed. I learned it as an extra weapon for last winter`s Ashes, for when the ball stopped swinging.”

"The fact is that if I`m not sure which way the ball is going to go, the batsman won`t have a clue. My fingers are slightly wider either side of the seam and instead of putting a strong wrist action behind the delivery this ball is more released than pushed out," he explained.
