James Anderson: The Trailblazer in Test Cricket
Though, the 4-year-old pacer now plays only in the longest format of the game for the England cricket team, he has also represented the Three Lions in other formats of the game. Anderson made his debut for England in ODIs first in a match against Australia in Melbourne on December 15, 2002.
He played his first Test match at the Lord’s on May 22, 2003, against Zimbabwe. He made a blockbuster entry into the Test scene by picking a fifer in his debut match and since then he has become an integral part of the red-ball side.
During his glorious career of almost two decades, the veteran has played a total of 172 Tests and 194 ODIs in the English outfit and scalped 657 and 269 wickets respectively. In T20Is, he has picked 18 wickets in 19 games. Interestingly, he hasn’t announced his retirement from any form of the game but he has devoted his life to playing Test cricket.
