Video - Frustrated Anderson Reflects On Day Two

England fast bowler James Anderson looks back on an action-packed day two of the first Ashes Test at Trent Bridge, revealing his frustration at decisions that didn't go his side's way.

England felt they had stumped debutant Ashton Agar early in his innings, but the decision was turned down and the 19-year-old went on to score 98.

Anderson paid tribute to the way Agar played, however, admitting that England knew little about the Western Australia bowler.

"Obviously he played very well," Anderson said. "We didn't know too much about him, but I thought he played really well, him and (Phil) Hughes dug in brilliantly, played their shots when they could and really put us under pressure."

Later in the day, Jonathan Trott was given out leg before wicket despite an initial 'not out' call from Aleem Dar and Anderson is convinced his team-mate hit the ball.

"I only saw the stumping on the replay screen, so it's difficult to tell from that... Trotty hit his, and was given not out, and whatever happened after that, I'm not quite sure."

England will resume day three on 80 for two in their second innings - 15 runs ahead.
