Fit as a fiddle, England strike bowler James Anderson is targeting 700 test wickets. James Anderson became the first fast bowler in the history of test cricket to get 600 wickets last month during the final test of the three-test series between England and the visiting Pakistan. Anderson, 38, who has been serving England for more than fifteen years seems comfortably place to play for another two years. So there is every likelihood that he will touch the 700 figure.
Anderson is fourth on the list of test bowlers with most wickets with Muthiah Muralidharan, Shane Warne and Anil Kumble – all spinners – ahead of him. Murladharan tops the list with 800 test wickets followed by Warne and Kumble with 708 and 619 wickets respectively.
Anderson revealed in an interview that Engalnd Cricket Board (ECB) management have asked him to play on until the next Ashes series.
