Legendary bowler James Anderson, in the opinion of former England captain Michael Vaughan, will rank among the top ten cricket players of all time. Anderson is expected to end his career after his final Test match at Lord’s against the West Indies on July 10. With 700 Test wickets under his belt, there is much dispute regarding whether Anderson is the best fast bowler to have ever played the game.

After taking 987 wickets in international cricket, Vaughan gave Anderson some insight and said he was the finest England had ever produced. James Anderson is considered one of the best wing bowlers in the world. His impeccable skill to move the ball both ways with the control over line and length and has gained him huge success.

He has caused trouble to all great batsmen all over the world right from Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, Steve Smith, Kane Williamson, Ricky Ponting etc. He is batsman’s nightmare to face on green wickets with that dukes ball.

James Anderson Is The Best Ever.

Speaking on the Club Prairie Fire podcast here’s what Michael Vaughan had to say about James Anderson:

“In international cricket, I think he has got 987 polls. He could easily be up there. He is certainly England’s greatest by a good mile or two because Stuart Broad is close and the likes of Freddie Trueman back in the day were outstanding. I think he is in the top 10 cricketers of all time.”

James Anderson is likely to continue to be in the England setup as a bowling consultant almost immediately after his Test retirement.

James Anderson On His Bowling At His Age Of 41

James Anderson feels that he is bowling better than he has ever bowled, even though he is only a few days away from turning 42. Ben Stokes, the captain of England, Brendon McCullum, the coach, and Robert Key, the director of cricket, met with him earlier this year in Manchester and gave him an explanation of why England wanted to move on from Anderson.

“I feel like I’m still bowling as well as I ever have. But, I knew it had to end at some point. Whether it’s now or in a year or two. The fact it’s now is something I’ve got to deal with and accept. The last couple of months I’ve made peace with that. I can completely understand the decision and the way the team and management want to go.”

Whether James Anderson can take nine more wickets to surpass the late Shane Warne and become the second-highest wicket-taker in Test match history will be an interesting thing to watch.
