James Anderson and Stuart Broad are said to be one of the most successful bowling partners in the last few decades of Test history as they share more than 1000 wickets between them over the course of many years.
In his book, Bowl. Sleep. Repeat., Anderson recalled his first interaction with Broad as he revealed that he thought that he was meeting a girl, mistaken by his fluffy hair.
“The first time Stuart Broad walked into the dressing room, with his flowing blonde hair, striking blue eyes and perfect figure, I thought 'My God, she's beautiful,” says Anderson.
However, Anderson has praised his bowling partner for his support through the years as he applauded the way Broad has made a comeback several times in his career after being under extreme pressure.
