England’s fast bowler James Anderson continues to prove his craziness for cricket as he completes his 150th Test match in the game against South Africa at Centurion. The right-arm fast bowler became the first specialist bowler ever in the history to play 150 Test matches. Only Alastair Cook has played more matches than him (161).
Anderson also became the 9th player in the history to play a century and a half Test matches with Sachin Tendulkar leading the list (200 matches). Anderson was ruled out of the Ashes series during the 1st Test match at the Edgbaston courtesy an injury. Since then, he was out of the game for a while.
The Boxing Day Test match is a great occasion for England’s premier fast bowler to complete this feat. The 37-year-old is currently the leading wicket-taker for England in the longest format of the game with 575 wickets to his name. He also finished this decade with the second-highest wickets after taking 535 wickets. He made his debut at the age of 20 for England.
