Veteran England fast bowler James Anderson believes that he is not very good for Test cricket. Anderson has shared the experiences of his Test journey ahead of the second Test against New Zealand starting on June 10. Anderson said, ‘I think it is a huge step forward from county cricket. I remember Nasir didn’t field for me at fine leg in my first match and I had given up a lot of runs. My first ball was also a no ball, so at that time I was very nervous and at that time I did not think that I would reach here today.
It is understood that if Anderson plays the second Test against New Zealand on June 10, it will be a milestone for him. After playing this match, he will overtake former England star batsman Alastair Cook in terms of playing most Test matches. This will be his 162nd Test match, the most for any England player.
Anderson said, “These 15 years of Test cricket have been really unbelievable. Knowing how many test matches Alastair Cook has played. I am very proud that I have really reached this point. It took some years. I think it is a bit difficult to play against better teams in the world like South Africa, Australia and India. Once you perform against the top teams in the world, you can feel that you can really perform well at that level, so it took me a few years and a few tours around the world to get me thinking. that I can really do that. It is noteworthy that Anderson made his Test debut 18 years ago against Zimbabwe at Lord’s in 2003.
