But entirely modern, making use of some of the most up-to-date systems in sport."<br /> <br /> <em>The Telegraph</em>'s Simon Hughes celebrated England's swing-king Anderson.<br /> <br /> "<a href="/tags/Michael-Holding/post" target="_blank">Michael Holding</a>, the West Indies fast bowler...has a good yardstick for judging bowlers," he wrote.<br /> <br /> "Only when one has taken at least four wickets-per-Test over a long period of time, can they be considered 'great'.<br /> <br /> "With his 10 wickets, Jimmy Anderson nudged closer to that milestone. He is on the verge of greatness," wrote Hughes.<br /> <br /> <em>The Times</em>' Simon Barnes was even more enthusiastic, calling Anderson's four-wicket burst on Sunday a "stupendous effort."<br /> <br /> "Anderson will be the most successful bowler in England's history. And as good as any that bowled," he wrote.<br /> <br /> Turning to the vanquished tourists, the <em>Guardian</em>'s <a href="/tags/Vic-Marks/post" target="_blank">Vic Marks</a> highlighted grounds for optimism despite the 14-run defeat.<br /> <br /> "No glory for defeated Australia in first Ashes Test but plenty of hope," he said.<br /> <br /> "The determined display from Michael Clarke's men suggests sum will be much greater than their parts.<br /> <br /> "It is not generally part of an Australian's psyche to take consolation from a 'good' defeat," he added. "But if ever this was justified it was at the end of this Test."
