Quick James Anderson has appeared in 162 games in England© Instagram
Veteran Englishman James Anderson added another feather to his already-famous cap on Thursday as he beat former skipper Alastair Cook to become England’s best test cricketer. Anderson got the feat in the second test against New Zealand, here in Edgbaston. England won the draw and decided to make a first in the second round against New Zealand. The legendary Pacer has appeared in 162 games for England more than Cook, having played 161 games in the longest format.
Fastball player Stuart Broad is third on the list after playing 147 tests with England, with former cricketer Alec Stewart in fourth place at 133 at the waist.
Anderson is the only fast bowler who has taken more than 600 goalkeepers in the longest format of the game. He has 616 scalps in Test Cricket, 98 more than Broad, which is another active player on the list of the top ten best wickets.
The heartbeat of the right revealed that he was not sure whether he was good enough to play in international cricket when he started against Lord Zimbabwe in May 2003.
“I thought I wasn’t good enough. I thought it was a tremendous step away from County Cricket. I remember Nasser [Hussain] I didn’t have a fine leg for myself and I went for a decent run. My first ball wasn’t the ball, so there were a lot of nerves and I felt like it was too many steps for me at the time, ”they achieved, ESPNcricinfo reported.
The hurdles that the high-level campaign has faced over its long career only make it feel stronger.
Anderson also admitted that the growth of someone who can win games from a good ball took some time and helped him out after strong performances against top teams.
Meanwhile, a few minutes before the start of the second test, BJ Watling was ruled out of goalkeeping. Wellington Firebirds goalkeeper Tom Blundell’s bat will take on gloves and six bats in his 11th test.
