ENG vs PAK 2nd Test - James Anderson eyes 600 wickets milestone!

A historic feat awaits James Anderson as England hope to clinch the series against Pakistan in the 2nd Test starting in Southampton today.

Anderson is just 10 wickets away from becoming the only fast bowler in history to claim 600 Test wickets, and overall, only the 4th to the landmark.


All Time Most Test Wickets Record

Can Anderson reach this milestone in the 2nd Test or during the series against Pakistan?


I want to see Anderson get 600 wickets but his record at the Ageas Bowl isn’t that good.

Of his 154 Tests, Anderson has played only four at the venue, picking up 16 wickets with a best of 5/53 against India in 2014. In the previous two Tests Anderson played in Southampton, the fast bowler had figures of 3/62, 2/49 and 0/42 against the West Indies not too long ago. With two Tests left in England’s home summer, Anderson has four innings to get there.


Anderson dismisses suggestions that he will retire after “one bad game” against Pakistan at Emirates Old Trafford and is determined to show he can still perform at the highest level.

Is there any player that could withstand this bowling? Anderson produced a masterclass in skill and control with the swinging ball, as he ripped through the Sri Lankan batting line up in 2016.


Best fast bowler i have ever seen. At this age where many players think of retirement he is still hungry for wickets.He still wants to play The Ashes 2020-21 to be held in Australia. He wants to play as long as he can.Surely he will reach the mark of 600 wickets and may be more than that.



James Anderson faced a lot of criticism after 1-97 in the first game of the series at Manchester. But what a comeback he made in the 2nd test. He proved that, he is far from over and still has some fuel left in the tank.

Just eight deliveries to dismiss Shan Masood and he also dismissed the visiting captain Azhar Ali who has been struggling for runs as he snicked one straight into the arms of Rory Burns at second slip which brings Anderson’s tally to 592 wickets. Anderson, with this performance, looks strong to carry on at least till the next Ashes and if not he will leave as a legend of test cricket.


38 years old and still the highest wicket-taker among seam bowlers in the history of Test Cricket. James Anderson is a treat to watch in red ball cricket. England’s Swing Bowling Magician still has a couple of series left in his career to play before retirement and the 600 mark will soon be achieved.

James Anderson climbs Mt. 600: Numbers behind his Test legacy


James Anderson’s nightmarish spell to Virat Kohli in India’s tour to England 2014 will be one of my most fond memories of watching the speedster bowl. Also statistically, he has the most number of wickets by any bowler against India (110). A true legend of the game, keeping the legacy of Test match cricket alive.
