London: James Anderson, England’s legendary fast bowler, has announced he will retire from international cricket after the first Test against West Indies at Lord’s this summer. This marks the end of a remarkable career that began at the same iconic ground 21 years ago.

Anderson, who will turn 42 in July, made his Test debut in 2003 against Zimbabwe at Lord’s. Since then, he has established himself as a true legend of the game, claiming a staggering 700 Test wickets – the most by any pace bowler in history. His tally of 188 Test appearances puts him second on the all-time list, behind only the legendary Sachin Tendulkar (200).

In a personal statement on Instagram, Anderson confirmed his final appearance for England. However, speaking on the BBC’s Tailenders podcast, he hinted at the possibility of continuing his county career with Lancashire.

This first Test against West Indies, scheduled for July 10th, promises to be an emotional occasion for him as well as for his fans.
