'IF HE CAN GET TO 600 THAT WOULD BE INCREDIBLE'
James Anderson says he has no plans to hang up his boots yet after overtaking Glenn McGrath to become the most prolific fast bowler in Test history as the Australian challenged the Englishman to reach 600 wickets. "When I sit down at the end of my career, when I finish, it will mean a hell of a lot to me to be able to see what I've achieved," he said. "But right now it's hard when you put all your energy into the present and trying to perform well for England. That's all I really focus on." McGrath posted a message of congratulations on Instagram and told BBC Radio: "If he can raise the bar to 600 wickets, that's an incredible effort. Being a fast bowler is the toughest part of the game and injuries do play a part. To think that Jimmy's played for so long and continued at the top of his game shows his work ethic, his physical and mental strength and everything else that goes into it." McGrath added: "The game is quicker, it's faster. And will bowlers play enough Test cricket in the future to get anywhere near the mark?"
