    Anderson bids farewell to the Cricket career

    English player James Anderson, the owner of the record for highest number of wickets in the history of test cricket by a fast bowler, has announced his retirement from the cricket field.

    Accordingly, James Anderson posted a message on his social media that he will retire from the Test cricket at the end of the first Test against the West Indies in July.

    Anderson has taken 700 wickets in 187 Tests so far. His best bowling is considered to be 7 wickets for 42 runs against West Indies.

    Muttiah Muralitharan, who is considered to be the world’s highest Test wicket taker, took 800 wickets in 133 matches and the late Shane Warne, who gave him a competition, took 708 wickets in 145 matches. Both of them are spinners in the Test cricket.

    Fast bowler James Anderson is third among these records and if he takes more than 8 wickets in his final match against the West Indies, he will have the opportunity to become second in this record book.

    Anderson, who was lucky enough to represent the England national team for 21 years, intends to take up golf after saying goodbye to the cricket.
