James Anderson

James Anderson has become the first fast bowler to take 600 wickets in Test match cricket.

The 38 year old dismissed Pakistan captain Azhar Ali on day five of the third.

Anderson made history in his 156th Test match, over 17 years after he took his first wicket. He bowl Zimbabwe batsman Mark Vermeulen on his Test debut in May 2003.

Anderson was made to wait for his 600 milestone moment, with four catches dropped off his bowling in a rain-affected Test, before he finally made history with the wicket of Azhar on day five – getting the ball to rear up off a length and take the edge through to Joe Root at slip.
