The England cricketer James Anderson has certainly proved that age is just a number as this 38 years old pacer is still bowling like any young pacer. He has stopped playing in the shorter formats as he wants to focus completely on the longest and purest format of the game. James Anderson has taken 614 wickets in 160 matches and he is the highest wicket taker if we talk only about the fast bowlers. In his test career, he has taken five-wicket hauls 30 times and 10 wicket hauls three times which speak highly of his caliber.
The haters of James Anderson allege that he can bowl well in those conditions which are helpful for him but on the recent tour to India, Anderson proved them all wrong by posing problems for the Indian world-class batsmen on the slow Indian tracks.
Recently the Barmy Army, the group which supports the English cricket team, posted a video on the micro-blogging site Twitter in which it showed Anderson ripping apart the defense of the Indian batsmen. The video was captioned, “To all the India fans in our mentions saying Jimmy ‘Clouderson’”.

During an interview, James Anderson has also talked about the noises with regard to his increasing age and said that this is what frustrates him a lot. Talking about England, he states that it happens the most in his country that when a person reaches a certain age, he is expected to slow down and people try to make him believe that he will lose the ability to perform his job in an efficient manner. Anderson further adds that it is not the case in reality and he can say this with his own experience.
India will be visiting England in July where both the teams will be playing a 5-match test series and it will be interesting to see how the Indian batters will face him in the conditions which will be very conducive for him.
