James Anderson completes 650 wickets in Tests, becomes first point guard to reach landmark | Cricket News



LONDON (UK): England pacemaker James Anderson has now taken 650 wickets in Test cricket, becoming the first fast bowler to do so. Anderson reached that landmark in the second Test against New Zealand at Trent Bridge in Nottingham.
The pacer trapped flyhalf Tom Latham with his pace. Latham tried to let the ball go but it crashed between the middle and his stump sending it back to the clubhouse for just 4.

With this, he also becomes the first English pacer to hit the 650 mark. Notably, he is also his team’s leading wicket taker in testing.

He is currently the third-highest wicket-taker in the game’s longest format, just behind Sri Lankan spin legend Muttiah Muralitharan (800) and the late Australian great Shane Warne (708).
