England pacer James Anderson says, ‘Body does not feel old’ as he is a game away to level Cook’s record

The first test between England and the Blackcaps (New Zealand) at Lords will set James Anderson to become England’s most-capped Test player. He has played 160 Test while the record of former skipper Alastair Cook is 161 test matches. The pacer has succeeded in getting 614 wickets from 160 test matches and he will get added to the tally this summer as he has two games against New Zealand and five matches against team India. Also with the largest clash known as the Ashes follows at the end of the year.

As per ESPNcricnfo, the pacer said in the LV= Insurance launch video ‘In With Heart’ that for a bowler to play this amount of matches, he does not know what the word is but it’s a bit mind-blowing to him. Along with this James is also closing his 1000-wicket mark in first-class cricket, as he said that that’s a lot of wickets and in that day and age, he doesn’t know if it’s possible to get that many wickets anymore.

With that amount of cricket played there doesn’t seem to be that longevity in bowlers and there are loads of T20I cricket and whatever else going on around the world. He is just happy to still be there for the team and to be honest. He just loves Test cricket and he has got a huge passion for it. while growing up, he wanted to play Test cricket for England and he is honoured that he had been able to do it for that long.
