Former England wicket-keeper Alec Stewart congratulated pacer James Anderson for reaching the 300-wicket club during the first Test at Lord's against New Zealand.

James Anderson became only the fourth England bowler to take 300 Test wickets when he dismissed New Zealand's Peter Fulton on the second day of the first Test at Lord's on Friday.

Lancashire seamer Anderson joined Ian Botham (383), Bob Willis (325) and the late Fred Trueman (307), the first man in history to take 300 Test wickets, in a select quartet of England bowlers.

The 30-year-old Anderson started the match needing two more wickets for his 300th in Tests.
