Anderson close to 1000 wickets, fan of Indian legend, said this on Jasprit Bumrah

James Anderson India vs England Test Series : It is not easy to reach the position that England fast bowler James Anderson is in the world of cricket today. If everything goes well, he will soon complete his 700 wickets in Test cricket. Even at the age of more than 41, Anderson remains the key to his team’s victory. But do you know that Anderson is an Indian fast bowler fan and he has learned many bowling tricks from Zaheer Khan. Anderson has now revealed this. He is also going to be seen in the last test against India to be held from March 7.

Anderson has been learning from Zaheer Khan

There is a gap of about ten days between the fourth and fifth matches of the Test series being played between India and England. The next match is still far away, meanwhile Anderson said during a conversation with Geo Cinema that he has seen Indian fast bowler Zaheer Khan playing a lot and has tried to learn from him. Anderson said that he tried to learn how Zaheer uses reverse swing, how he hides the ball when he runs to bowl, by playing against him here. Zaheer Khan played his last Test match in 2014, when Anderson was considered one of the best bowlers in the world, which he still is.

What did Anderson say about Bumrah?

Apart from Zaheer Khan, James Anderson also talked a lot about Jasprit Bumrah, who is called the backbone of India’s fast bowling. Anderson said that everyone knows that reverse swing plays a big role in India and Bumrah takes advantage of it very well. Bumrah has good pace and accuracy. He said that Bumrah also has a yorker and we saw how he dismissed Ollie Pope. It is no coincidence that he is the number one bowler in the world. He said that there are not many bowlers better than Bumrah, Shami and Siraj. You can also put Ishant Sharma in this category.

Anderson’s international career

James Anderson has so far taken 698 wickets in his name after playing 186 test matches. If he gets a chance in the playing eleven in the last match of the series to be held in Dharamshala from March 7, then he can definitely complete his 700 wickets. Now he has managed to take 10 wickets 3 times and 5 wickets 32 times in the match. Now apart from ODI and T20, he also stays away from league cricket. Anderson, who has played 194 ODIs, has 269 wickets in this format. He has played 19 T20 International matches and taken 18 wickets. That means, by combining all three formats, he has taken 985 wickets in his name so far and may or may not soon cross the 1000 mark.
