‘Equalling Cook record will be mind-blowing’

James Anderson has said the prospect of equalling the England record for Test appearances held by Alastair Cook is “mind-blowing”, reports AFP. If Anderson is selected for next week’s series opener against New Zealand at Lord’s, he will draw level with retired former captain Cook’s mark of 161 Tests while his close friend Cook spent his international career as an opening batsman, the 38-year-old Anderson, already England’s most successful Test bowler with 614 wickets. “It does make me feel proud,” Anderson told reporters. “I never imagined in a million years I’d get to this point.”
