Anderson would be better playing ODIs so that he gets enough bowling. Less overs will result in injuries as he is used to bowling 500-600+ overs a year not 330/350 overs. Even county bowlers bowl about 500 overs in a season. Broad is fine however many overs he bowls.

He especially needs overs before a 1st Test.

Before NZ 0 overs for 3 weeks - 6 at 43.00
Ashes 0 overs for 5 weeks - first 2 Tests 3 wickets at 71.00
UAE 85 overs with Lancs - 13 at 15.61
SA 0 overs for 8 weeks - 7 at 43.00
SL 115.5 with Lancs - 18 at 7.72
