Anderson Refuses to Take a Rest on Playing Cricket

Anderson continues to be in the cricket scene despite his age and recent injury.

James Anderson, at the age of 37 years old having four months out of Test cricket because of a calf injury during the first Ashes Test at Edgbaston in August says that he will continue to play cricket. 

Anderson stated, ‘I love that challenge that Test cricket brings. Putting in the hard yards in the field, having to graft for your wickets, having to try different fields, different plans. That's what I love about the game and that's why I want to keep playing’. 

Scoring 5-40 in South Africa’s first innings in Cape Town reminded him of the reason why he continues to play cricket and told that he will participate in the next Ashes series in the year 2021/22. 

On his 28th five-wicket haul in Tests, he was able to take one step ahead of Sir Botham for securing the wicket of Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje. ‘As I have said many times before, it is nice to see my name above him, someone of his stature and what he did for the game. That makes me quite proud but it's certainly not why I play the game and hopefully I can add to it in the next few years’, Anderson cleared.

Anderson and his team ended the third day leading with 264 and six wickets remaining after executing a solid batting display. According to Anderson, ‘Dom Sibley played brilliantly and then Rooty came in and played quite positively. That partnership has stood us in good stead for tomorrow’.
