english cricketer james anderson: i thought i was n0t good enough for test cricket says james anderson
England pacer James Anderson says he thought he was not a good fit for Test cricket. According to a Cricbuzz report, Anderson played in the first match of the ongoing two-match Test series against New Zealand and if he is played in the second Test starting here on Thursday, he will surpass Alastair Cook to become the most successful batsman for England. Become a Test match player.
Anderson made his Test debut 18 years ago in a Test match against Zimbabwe at Lord’s in 2003. Anderson said, ‘It’s been an unprecedented 15 years. Knowing that I have played as many matches as Cook has played. It’s a matter of pride for me. I thought I was not good enough. County cricket has changed a lot. I remember Naseer did not keep fine leg for me. My first ball was a no ball after which I got nervous and felt that I have a long way to go.
Anderson has 616 wickets to his name in Tests and is the fourth highest wicket-taker in Tests in the world behind Muttiah Muralitharan (800 wickets), Shane Warne (708) and Anil Kumble (619). Anderson said, ‘I am not disrespecting Zimbabwe, but against a team like South Africa, Australia and India, you have to perform. When you are able to perform against the top teams then you feel your level has risen.
