ENG vs IND 2018: James Anderson Set to Leapfrog Glenn McGrath’s Record
England’s pack leader James Anderson is all set to leapfrog legendary Glenn McGrath’s record. James Anderson has 540 Test scalps to his name. Thus, veteran England fast bowler is 23 wickets away from Glenn McGrath tally of Test wickets.
Meanwhile, Anderson had scalped 25 wickets at an average of 20.60 in the five-match series against India in the 2014 series. Therefore, a similar effort will see him overhaul the Australian quick. Furthermore, the swing master will also become the leading wicket-taker in the red ball version as a fast bowler.
Anderson will like to make life difficult for Indian batsmen.
Subsequently, when England will lock horns with India in the first Test match at Edgbaston, Birmingham, Anderson will have his opportunity to write his name in the history book.
James Anderson said while speaking to Sky Sports that is a surreal feeling to get close to McGrath’s record. Anderson said that he will try to keep playing well.
“To be as close to someone like Glenn McGrath as I am is still a bit surreal,” Anderson admits. “For me, [McGrath] is the greatest fast bowler that there has ever been. I’m just going to keep playing as well as I can and if I reach there, I reach there,” he added.
Meanwhile, Jimmy Anderson will have his work cut in the upcoming five-match Test series. Anderson has recently recovered from his shoulder injury and thus he would like to be cautious in his approach.
“It’s going to be pretty brutal so to have this time to concentrate on my fitness, get my shoulder right – I’ve done loads of bowling as well – so I do feel in a really good place,” Anderson said. “I just hope that I’m in a good enough place to get through those five Test matches,” he added.
There is no doubt that James Anderson is going to hold the key in the upcoming Test series. In fact, England think tank will like to manage his workload with guile as the pacer himself earlier mentioned that playing five Test matches in six weeks time is ridiculous.
