England’s Anderson takes 600th Test wicket

SOUTHAMPTON, United Kingdom, Aug 25, 2020 (BSS/AFP) – England’s
James Anderson became just the fourth bowler and first paceman to take
600 Test wickets when he dismissed Pakistan captain Azhar Ali in the
third Test at Southampton on Tuesday.

The only bowlers with more Test wickets than the 38-year-old
Anderson are a trio of retired spinners — Sri Lanka’s Muttiah
Muralitharan (800 Test wickets), Australia’s Shane Warne (708) and
India’s Anil Kumble (619).
