Prime Minister David Cameron's impromptu visit to the England cricket team's dressing room after Friday's play sent a towel-wrapped James Anderson scurrying for his clothes.

Cameron, who came to The Oval to watch the second day's play of the fourth and the last cricket Test, visited the England dressing room to congratulate the players on becoming the World's top Test team.

Anderson was caught off guard by the visit.

"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," the fast bowler wrote in his column in Daily Mail.

"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."

England are on a verge of 4-0 whitewash in the series and have dislodged India to become the top Test team.
