James Anderson The First Fast Bowler to reach 600 Test Wickets

James Anderson 600

James Michael Anderson, OBE (born 30 July 1982), is an English international cricketer who plays for Lancashire County Cricket Club and the England cricket team. Anderson is the all-time leading wicket-taker among fast bowlers surpassing Glenn McGrath (563 wickets) and holds the record of most wickets for England in both Test and One-Day International (ODI) cricket. He is the first English bowler, and the fourth overall, to pass 600 Test wickets.

Only Muttiah Muralitharan, Shane Warne and Anil Kumble had previously broken the 600-wicket barrier in the longest format of the game, making Anderson just the fourth player with 600 or more Test scalps.

Twitter has erupted with the praises from former and recent cricketers around the world. See some of the tweets…

We wish him great success in Cricket.
