Anderson became the first fast bowler to take 600 Test wickets
Jimmy Anderson is the first fast bowler in history to take 600 Test wickets. If fellow fielders had not missed four easy catches, Manchester would not have had to wait for 599 wickets in the ongoing Test. Today (August 25) the English fast bowler will make history if he can take only one wicket on the fifth day. However, the rain that has been suffering throughout the entire Test is raising doubts about the start of the game today.
Meanwhile, many believe that Anderson’s career, which is over 36, may end soon. But if former Australian spin legend Shane Warne points out the way, how can this English fast bowler’s career be extended for at least two more years. According to him, Anderson could be sent out of the country with the responsibility of pace bowling coach with an auto choice in the XI at home.
Former star leg-spinner Warne said: ‘Look at Jimmy Anderson, he’s great. Even at the age of 36, I’m curious to see how he handles things. You want Jimmy to play as long as possible. So is there a way for him to go abroad as a bowling coach? ‘
‘In England, you can say that Jimmy wants to play 3-4 more years. If you select a team at home he will be at the top of your list. But on foreign soil? I don’t think so. ‘ Shane Warne added to the conversation with Sky Sports.
Jimmy Anderson, who is on the verge of making history, said earlier this year that he wants to play at least until the 2021 Ashes. However, a few days ago, rumors spread that the highest wicket-taker among Test pacers will retire very soon. Anderson, the fourth-highest wicket-taker in the Tests, is rumored to have blown himself up later.
