Anderson completes 650 wickets in Tests

Veteran England pacer James Anderson went past the landmark of 650 wickets in Test cricket during Day 4 of the second Test match against New Zealand at Trent Bridge in Nottingham on Monday.

  • Scorecard: England vs New Zealand, 2nd Test

Anderson achieved the landmark in his 171st Test match, when he trapped captain Tom Latham leg before wicket in New Zealand’s second innings.

Left-hander Latham erred with his judgement as he attempted to leave the ball which struck right in front of the stumps.

Anderson is the third highest wicket-taker in Tests behind Sri Lankan spin legend Muttiah Muralitharan (800) and late Australian leg-spin great Shane Warne (708).
