SOUTHAMPTON, August 25
England’s James Anderson turned the primary seam bowler to achieve 600 Test wickets, reaching the milestone in a dismal final session of a rain-hit remaining day of the third Test towards Pakistan.
Most Test wickets
- Muttiah Muralitharan (SL) 800 (133 matches)
- Shane Warne (AUS) 708 (145)
- Anil Kumble (IND) 619 (132)
- James Anderson (ENG) 600 (156*)
Anderson had Pakistan captain Azhar Ali caught at slip by Joe Root. The recreation led to a draw.
It had been an agonising look forward to Anderson, marooned on 599 wickets after his teammates dropped 4 catches in 37 balls off his bowling within the innings, and with rain pouring down in a single day and into the morning. — Reuters
