England's pace bowler James Anderson, who has been included in all-time great bowlers, piled up Australia for just 138 runs in the second innings of the second Ashes Test. However, winning England in this test match is very difficult. But Anderson's poor performance of batsmen has no effect on Anderson. Anderson took five wickets on the fourth day and at the same time he reached closer to the West Indian great bowler Courtney Walsh.
It is very clear that Anderson will write his name shortly after Courtney Walsh's 519 wickets. At the moment James Anderson has taken 514 wickets and he is just six wickets away from Walsh's record. However, this was the 25th time when this English seamer took five wickets in the match. Anderson has taken 10 wickets in the match three times. Anderson has become the second fastest bowler in the world after this feat.
But in front of this great England champion, now the biggest challenge has become Australia's great fast bowler Glenn McGrath. The challenge is not only McGrath's record but Anderson's age too. McGrath has taken 563 wickets in his Test career and he is number one in the top of the fast bowlers, so he has done 29 times to hit five wickets in an innings. Now breaking this record has become a big challenge for Anderson.Image Copyright: google
