Ahmedabad നമ്മൾ We are talking about the fastest bowlers in cricket in the land of dusty bowling. In the first Test of the India-England series, James Anderson’s swing bowling struck the Indian batsmen on a dusty pitch at Chepauk Stadium. 4 maidens in 11 overs, 3 wickets for 17 runs. Anderson proved that not only spinners but also pacers can work wonders on a broken pitch in India. India’s pathetic defeat at home from the hangover of a series win over Australia came down from the sky.
India will be relieved by England’s decision to allow pace bowlers to rotate in the second Test. Stuart Broad, who replaced James Anderson, who was bowling in the best form of his career, could not shine in the first innings. So can you take comfort? When England face England in the third Test at the new ground in Motera, Ahmedabad, Anderson is sure to be the man the Indian players fear. Anderson has taken 611 wickets in 159 Tests so far. Only a handful of wickets are needed to overtake Anil Kumble, the third highest wicket-taker. Among the current players, Anderson is followed by his teammate Stuart Broad with 517 wickets.
Pacer cum Designer
Anderson’s swing bowling, nicknamed Jimmy, often features a designer ‘s ingenuity. An inswinger who stumbles through the gap between the bat and the pad, miscalculating even the most experienced batsman, or outswingers that slip into the edge or into the keeper’s hand when defending in the opening spell. Balls thrown on the line are not just coincidences as planned and drawn.
James Anderson is also a fashion designer with his own brand. Within a few years of his debut, Anderson became a stylish star in English cricket. There were even comparisons in terms of fashion with footballer David Beckham. In 2014, it launched its own menswear brand. The watch was launched in 2015 by British watchmaker Harold Pinchbeck.
James became the first cricketer to model nude for Britain’s best-selling gay magazine ‘Attitude’. He was of the opinion that if any cricketer was having difficulty in expressing his personality in this way, he should speak openly.
International cricket; The beginning is like a dream
James Anderson was called up to the national team in 2002 while remaining in sparkling form in domestic cricket. He scored a hat-trick in first-class cricket for Lancashire to make his Test debut against Zimbabwe next week. A dream start with a 5 wicket debut at Lord’s, the mecca of cricket. An English bowler scored his first ODI hat-trick against Pakistan in the next series.
James Anderson made his ODI debut in 2002 against Australia at the age of 20. Anderson proved his mettle at the 2003 World Cup in South Africa the following year. In the match against Pakistan, he took 4 wickets for 19 runs and got a lot of praise. Despite criticism from coaches of blindly bowling in the name of different action, it survived. Tendulkar, Ganguly and Dravid took wickets for the first time in an innings on India’s tour of England in 2007.
ആദ്യ First pacer to take 600 wickets
Anderson became the first pace bowler to take 600 wickets in Test cricket against the West Indies last August. Cricket fans were incredulous to see a 600-wicket haul of a pace bowler with high fitness and a high risk of injury. There is no other answer to the question of who is the best pacer in Test cricket in the last 10 years. Anderson has been bowling consistently for over 30 years. He is also the highest wicket-taker in ODIs for England.
Anderson in the first Test
Shubhman Gill, who was considered to have scored a half-century, was bowled clean by Jimmy Chepauk in the second innings of the first Test. In the third ball of the innings, Anderson smashed the defense of vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane to give England the lead. The fate of the match was written when Rishabh handed the ball to Joe Root, who could have been dangerous if he had stood still. At this point, Anderson’s spell was 3 for 7 in 6 overs. Now the pink ball is an experiment. It remains to be seen whether the Indian batting line-up will be able to respond to swing bowling.
