England's one day series in India was cut short due to terror attacks in Mumbai. 7 matches were due to be played, but due to the attacks England flew home early, after five games. They were 5–0 down in the series and Anderson had not taken one wicket, despite bowling in every one of the five games. Anderson has an unusual bowling action, at the moment of delivery he has his head down, eyes closed and does not look where he is bowling; he attempted to bowl with his head up but found that he lost pace in doing so, so reverted to his original action. In 2003, ex-England pace bowler Bob Willis claimed that Anderson would only be able to play for five years with his action. Between 2004 and 2005, the England coaching staff attempted to alter Anderson's bowling action.
