James Anderson Breaks Sir Ian Botham’s England Wicket Record

James AndersonJames Anderson surpassed Sir Ian Botham as England’s highest Test wicket-taker in history with his 384th dismissal in his 100th match.

Anderson, 32, had West Indies’ Denesh Ramdin caught at first slip on the final day of the first Test in Antigua.

The seamer, who began the Test on 380 wickets, roared with delight and was mobbed by his team-mates.

Ramdin’s departure left West Indies 294-7 as they attempted to bat out the final day to secure a draw.

Lancashire’s Anderson, who made his Test debut in 2003, has helped England win three Ashes series and rise to the top of the Test rankings in 2011.
