James Anderson became the most successful pace bowler in the history of international cricket.

The 40-year-old ageless pace legend accomplished this feat in the second Test against South Africa in Manchester’s Old Trafford. Anderson dismissed Simon Harmer for 16 off 48 balls to accomplish this feat. Anderson delivered an excellent delivery that went past Harmer’s stumps and sent the bails flying. The wicket left the Old Trafford crowd erupting, who celebrated the landmark reached by the pace legend.

Now, he has overtaken Glenn McGrath (949 wickets) to become the sport’s leading pacer. In 287 matches, Anderson has taken 951 wickets.

He is also the fourth most successful bowler in all of the international cricket, after overtaking McGrath.

The most successful bowlers in the international cricket are Sri Lankan spin wizard, Muttiah Muralitharan (1,347 wickets), late Aussie spin great Shane Warne (1,001 wickets), and Indian spin great Anil Kumble (956 wickets).

An all-round impressive performance from England, led by a superb century and bowling from their skipper Ben Stokes and ageless pace leader James Anderson helped the hosts clinch a massive win over South Africa by an innings and 85 runs in just three days at Manchester’s Old Trafford on Saturday.
