Anderson is currently 41 years old and considered as the england team’s best bowler in test format with great history and achievements for his career and country.

Jameson Anderson retirement from Test Cricket made fans upset. He had played 187 official Test matches for the England side and now decided to take a step back from cricket.

“Hi everyone. Just a note to say that the first Test of the summer at Lord’s will be my last Test,” Anderson said in a personal statement.

It’s been an incredible 20 years representing my country, playing the game I’ve loved since I was a kid. I’m going to miss walking out for England so much. But I know the time is right to step aside and let others realize their dreams just like I got to because there is no greater feeling.

“I couldn’t have done it without the love and support of Daniella, Lola, Ruby, and my parents. A huge thank you to them. Also, thank you to the players and coaches who have made this the best job in the world.

Stuart Broad, Anderson’s longstanding bowling partner, decided to retire last summer and had a spectacular goodbye, riding off into the sunset after clinching a wicket with his final ball, securing England’s draw in the Ashes.

Remember, Anderson became the first seamer to reach 700 Test wickets, and the third overall, in the fifth and final Test between England and India in March of this year.

Sri Lanka’s Muttiah Muralitharan leads the all-time wickets table with 800 from 133 Tests, followed by Australia spin star Shane Warne (708).
