ENG vs NZ: Anderson becomes first fast bowler to achieve this feat – watch

Author: Yuvi June 13, 2022 ENG vs NZ 2nd Test: James Anderson becomes first pacer to achieve THIS huge feat - WATCH

England fast bowler James Anderson has now taken 650 wickets in Test cricket, becoming the first fast bowler to do so. Anderson achieved this in the second Test against New Zealand at Trent Bridge in Nottingham.

The pacer trapped opener Tom Latham at his own pace. Latham tried to release the ball, but it hit the middle of his off-stump, sending him back to the pavilion for just 4.

With this, he has also become the first English pacer to reach the 650 mark. Notably, he is also the leading wicket-taker for his side in Tests.

He is the third-highest wicket-taker in the longest format of the game, just behind Sri Lankan spin legend Muttiah Muralitharan (800) and late Australian leg-spin great Shane Warne (708).

Talking about the match, New Zealand’s second innings and total third innings of the match are going on.

In the second innings, England were bowled out for 539. Joe Root (176) and Ollie Pope (145) and Ben Fox (56) were the stars for his team.

Trent Boult (5/106) and Michael Bracewell (3/62) were the best bowlers for the Kiwis.
