James Anderson India vs England : Like the first Test match against India, the England cricket team has announced its playing eleven a day before the second Test. England has made two changes in its playing eleven. First of all, Jack Leach’s exclusion was already decided because he is injured. In his place, Shoaib Bashir has entered the team, who will be seen playing his first test i.e. debut match. On the other hand, James Anderson has returned in place of Mark Wood. Anderson had missed the first match. James Anderson’s statistics are good against the Indian team and he also seems to be moving towards new records.
James Anderson’s performance against Team India
James Anderson has played 35 Test matches against India so far. In this he has taken 139 wickets to his name. He has bowled a total of 66 innings and taken so many wickets. His average against India is 24.71 and strike rate is 55. That means he has been bowling brilliantly against India so far. He will be seen playing the first match of this series. James Anderson is quite old now, perhaps this is the reason why England does not give him a chance continuously. This is only the second Test, that is, there are still four matches left, so there is little hope that they will play all the matches. They will also be given rest in between.
Anderson close to 700 test wickets
Talking about Anderson’s overall record, he has played 183 test matches so far. In which he has taken 690 wickets. His average is 26.42 and strike rate is 56.8. He is now slowly moving towards completing 700 Test wickets. Sri Lanka’s Muttiah Muralitharan is at number one in terms of taking most wickets in the world of Test cricket. He has 800 wickets in his name. Anderson’s own countryman Shane Warne is in second place. Who has taken 708 wickets. Anderson is currently in third place. Who has taken 690 wickets. Muralitharan’s record is far away from him, but in the coming time he can definitely break Shane Warne’s record of 708 wickets. It remains to be seen how many wickets he adds to his account when the series against India ends.
