James Anderson, England fast bowler said that the New Zealand series was a tough series. The wickets at New Zealand were flat and according to Anderson it was tough for the bowlers to maintain ascendancy.
The fast bowler is excited to use the Dukes ball which swings a bit more that Kookaburra ball.
This year there is back-to-back Ashes. Anderson, who has 298 wickets in Test cricket, wants to focus on taking wickets and help England win matches. The 300 wicket milestone does not bother him. What matters to him is how he can bowl right channels and pick up wickets.
