While Anderson, 35, looks as fit as ever to take his tally of wickets past 500, Broad has recently surpassed Ian Botham s numbers and would be eager to get closer to Anderson s numbers. Though every match is exciting for any cricketer, Englishmen and Australians especially look forward to The Ashes, and the 2019 edition at home will be the bird s eye for the bowlers. Broad, in a recent interview, mentioned about Anderson and him bowling brilliantly to be a major plus for their team Down Under.</p> <p></p>"I ll be just turned 33. Jimmy is 35 now so I d certainly hope my performances will keep improving to be a part of that Ashes for sure. I'm not someone who looks too far ahead because I think it slows you down as a performer. This winter is a hugely exciting one because I think that series is going to be a belter with two teams that look really similar. But obviously I have hunger to go further than that," Broad told <i>cricket.com.au</i>. "To be fair, Jimmy is bowling as well as I ve seen him bowl. He s turned 35 but I don t think I ve ever seen him challenge both sides of the bat as consistently as he has done this summer. Fielding at mid-on and mid-off to him, I feel like he is in the game all the time. He s not bowling bad balls, he looks in a rhythm that s awesome. Long may that continue. He is taking regular wickets, both LB and bowled and nicking off. That s a great place for him to be, he said about Anderson. <p></p> <p></p>"Look, he s going to be crucial for our chances this winter for sure and hopefully he can keep that rhythm going because he is picking up wickets at a huge speed at the moment and, not only will he be looking at 500, he ll be looking way past that the way he is going," he added. <p></p> <p></p>For Broad, 31, age is just a number, as he feels he is capable for more. <p></p> <p></p>"I m 31 now and still feel like I have quite a bit of cricket left in me. I m loving the energy around this team, I m loving being part of it. At 31 I ve hopefully, touch wood, got a few more miles in the tank."
