England‘s spearhead and swing merchant, James Anderson went onto take 350 Test wickets for his country, while playing against Sri Lanka in the first Test at Lord’s. He became the second bowler after Ian Botham from England to take 350 wickets in Tests. He took the wicket off Angelo Mathews to achieve the milestone.  Anderson is also second in the list in terms of wickets being taken at Lord’s. Botham heads the list again.

Anderson made his Test debut against Zimbabwe back in 2003 at Lord’s at the age of just 20. He took a five-wicket in his first Test. Since then, he has gone onto play 92 Tests for his country. Anderson has picked up 15 five-fors and two 10-fors in his Test career. His best figures in a match came against Pakistan at Trent Bridge in 2010.

In the ongoing Test match played at Lord’s, he upped his pace on the final day and got the ball to reverse to trouble the Sri Lankan batsmen. This has been a good Test match for Anderson, especially after he struggled in Ashes 2013-14, Down Under. Anderson has come a long way since the time he took Mark Ramprakash’s wicket against Surrey in County cricket in 2002 and burst onto the international scene in the VB series in Australia in 2002-03.
