Twitterati salute Anderson on his 600th Test wicket
England fast bowler James Anderson is the hottest topic in the game. On August 25th, the fast bowler completed 600 wickets in his Test career. With reaching that milestone, he conquered some special records with himself too.
James Anderson is only after three bowling legends spinners Muttiah Muralitharan (800), Shane Warne (706) and Anil Kumble (619), in the list for leading Test wicket takers. Anderson became the first pace bowler in the world to take 600 wickets, leading Pakistan captain Azhar Ali to the pavilion.
In the table for fast bowlers, the England fast bowler is followed by former Australian greatest fast bowler Glenn McGrath with 563 wickets. With reaching a special landmark, the right-arm fast bowler is among the wishes and praises of people around the game.
Remarkable achievement to play 156 Tests as a Batsman .. To do it as a quick bowler & then achieve 600 wickets is nothing short of extraordinary .. Well done @jimmy9 .. England’s greatest ever bowler .. #TestCricket

600 of 156. Fitness, focus, fast. Speaks how much England plays tests. Not sure how many more, keep going James Anderson. Jumbo, here he comes!

For a fast medium bowler lasting 156 Tests is incredible- 600 Test wickets is doubly phenomenal. Passionate, committed, & having progressively transformed from a new ball bowler to one of the best of his type- J. Anderson not only to Eng, you have brought special images to all. pic.twitter.com/i9ezxvnsM1

Never thought I’d see in my lifetime a fast bowler take 600 test wickets! It’s not just the quantity but the quality with which he has bowled – be it slow or fast wickets, bounce or no bounce, seam or no seam, for him conditions never mattered! Sir @jimmy9 you are the #GOAT pic.twitter.com/ADrrW7m3zp
