James Anderson made record- IND vs ENG: James Anderson, the uncrowned king of bowling, made this very special record in his batting
Although the world knows England’s veteran fast bowler James Anderson for his stormy and swing bowling, on Friday he did a special job in batting against India at the Kennington Oval in London. In reply to India’s 191 runs in the first innings, England’s first innings ended on 290 runs. England thus took a crucial 99-run lead at the base during the first innings. England’s last wicket fell in the form of Chris Woakes, who was dismissed after playing brilliant innings of 50 runs. Anderson remained unbeaten on one run for England. In this way, Anderson has hit a special ‘century’ in terms of being unbeaten.
At the end of England’s innings at the Oval, Anderson’s name has been recorded by becoming the first cricketer in the world to return to the pavilion unbeaten 100 times in Test cricket. This is a record that even the world’s greatest batsman has not been able to make. The special thing is that there is no other player around him on this list. After him, the player who is present in this list, there is a difference of 39 numbers between him and Anderson. West Indies’ Courtney Walsh holds the record for the most unbeaten pavilion returns in Test cricket after Anderson. He has done this feat 61 times.
Talking about the other players included in this list, most of the bowlers are involved in it. Apart from Anderson and Walsh, it includes the names of Muttiah Muralitharan, Bob Willis, Chris Martin, Glenn McGrath, and Shivnarine Chanderpaul. Let us tell you that in the fourth match of the Test series against India, Anderson left the great Sachin Tendulkar behind in terms of playing the most Test matches at home. Anderson is playing his 95th Test match in England, while Sachin Tendulkar has played a total of 94 Test matches in his career on Indian soil. In this case, former Australian captain Ricky Ponting is at number three, who has played 92 Test matches in Australia.
