ZAHEER’ S HELP LED ANDERSON TO REACH THE TOP

Watching Zaheer Khan’s skills of bowling, James Anderson became the top bowler in Tests

 

 

England pacer James Anderson became rank 1 bowler in Tests, he gives his credits to Indian pacer Zaheer Khan. Anderson says that, he learnt the techniques of bowling after watching Zaheer’s skills. He pays tribute to the Indian for making him the best bowlers of Test matches.

 

Anderson, currently is the leading wicket taker in Test matches for England. The pacer is also the most affluent bowler in Tests with a number of wickets of 462 in 118 games with an average of 28.17. The pacer is at the top of the  International Cricket Council's ranking of bowlers surpassing Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin at the summit after England won in the third Test at Edgbaston.

 

"I think our team at the moment is better equipped to get to number one and stay there." Anderson said.

The bowler also added, "We are a more talented side. I think we are more mentally tough -- I think we showed what character we've got coming from 100 runs behind and managing to win (at Edgbaston)."

"The lads we have got in the dressing room are very down to earth, honest with their own appraisal and the team's own form.

"If they can keep developing and improving then the sky is the limit. I think we have got more time on our side.

"In the team then (in 2012), we had a lot of players early to mid 30s - now we have got the backbone of a side that could go on for another 10 years, and that is very exciting." expressed Anderson.
