James Anderson on the verge of becoming England’s most-capped Test player

English speed-star James Anderson is on the verge of becoming England’s most-capped Test player. If at all Anderson puts on his white jersey to play against the visiting ‘Kiwis’ on this Wednesday,  he’ll equate the mark of former English cricketer and captain Alastair Cook’s record of playing 161 test matches for the English side.

Anderson who’s known as the master of craft for swinging the ball has picked 614 wickets in the test format, an all-time highest by a fast bowler. Also, if Anderson successfully appears in all the upcoming seven Test games against the ‘Kiwis’ and India, he will be just behind the legendary trio of Batsmen – Sachin Tendulkar who has played 200 tests for India and former Australian captains, Steve Waugh and Ricky Ponting who have both appeared in 168 Tests for the ‘Kangaroo’ side.

Anderson, who appeared with his England teammates in the LV= Insurance launch video, said “It does make me feel proud, I never imagined in a million years I’d get to this point”.

Anderson also told he loves playing test cricket and stated he’s passionate about it. “While growing up, all I wanted to do is play Test cricket for England and I’m honoured that I’ve come all the way here and I feel this is a milestone for me.”

Anderson is also another milestone away where he’s just eight shies of taking 1,000 first-class wickets, with Andrew Caddick who was last England quick to achieve the feat in 2005. James represents Lancashire in the English domestic circuit.
