London. The 40-year-old fast bowler of the England cricket team, James Anderson, is not in need of any introduction at the present time. He is the third highest wicket-taker in the world of Test cricket. Apart from this, he is the first fast bowler to take the most wickets. Recently, a video of the veteran fast bowler has been shared by the Barmy Army on social media. In this video, he is seen practicing in the net. Even during practice, there is no lack of edge in Anderson’s ball. He has made everyone crazy by stacking all the three stumps with his excellent inswing.
Sharing this video of Anderson, Barmy Army wrote in its caption, ‘Jimmy getting ready for another Test series.’ Apart from this, while sharing this video, the Barmy Army has described him as a youth of 40 years. The English team has to play a three-match Test series against South Africa on home soil from August 21. Before the start of the series, Anderson is carving himself in the field.

Let us tell you that if the English team has as much as the series against the African team, then Anderson’s performance matters a lot. He is currently the strongest link in England’s pace battery. Anderson has made Sachin Tendulkar, who is called the God of Cricket, his victim most of the times.
Talking about his career, he started his career in 2003 against Zimbabwe at Lord’s. Anderson has so far taken 944 wickets while playing 385 matches in international cricket. He has 657 wickets in Test cricket, 269 in ODIs and 18 wickets in T20 cricket.
