England fast bowler James Anderson might be 41 but he continues to trouble batters.

James Anderson, England’s record-breaking fast bowler, refuses to age. At the age of 41, he continues to deliver the goods for England in Test cricket, consistently troubling the batters, young and old.

On Saturday, he struck with the new ball as he had India captain Rohit Sharma caught-behind for just 2 to give his team an early breakthrough after they were bowled out for 353 in the Ranchi Test.

Soon, the cameras panned towards a fan watching the proceedings at the JSCA International Stadium holding a poster that read, “I will start to study when James Anderson retires.”

Former India allrounder and coach Ravi Shastri was on air and he promptly responded, “You’ve got to wait, young man. You are not studying soon, go on a long holiday. It is not happening any time soon.”

Anderson is Test cricket’s most prolific fast bowler and the third highest wicket-taker in the format’s history. He’s just three wickets away from completing the milestone of 700 scalps now.

“Got to respect and admire the individual for his sheer longevity. To be around for so long and continue playing at the top level is superb.”
