England pacer James Anderson became the first pacer in the history of Test cricket to take 600 wickets, in the third Test against Pakistan on Tuesday.
James Anderson, who took three quick wickets on Day 2 of the ongoing Test match against Pakistan, two on Day 3, one on Day 4 and then dismissed Azhar Ali on Day 5 to complete his tally of 600 Test victims.
Anderson is overall the fourth bowler to take 600 or more Test wickets, behind spinners Muttiah Muralitharan (800), Shane Warne (708) and Anil Kumble (619).
The Test ended in a draw, with Pakistan managing to reach 187/4 in their second innings, following on after being bowled out for 273 in their first innings. England had declared their first innings for 583/8.
The hosts, thus, won the three-match series 1-0, having won the first Test in Manchester by three wickets. The rain-interrupted second Test at Southampton had ended in a draw.
Anderson is the second quickest to get to 600 wickets, taking six balls more than Muralitharan, but it could have come much sooner. Four catches off his bowling were dropped in 37 balls either side of Pakistan’s overnight change of innings between Days 3 and 4 of the final Test of the series.
Notably, 384 of the 600 wickets taken by James Anderson have come while playing in home conditions in England.
Australia is the only place where Anderson has been successful in taking more than 50 wickets. He has 60 victims from 18 matches Down Under. In India, James Anderson has taken 26 wickets in 10 matches.
