England’s boisterous and energetic veteran fast bowler James Anderson has brushed aside all the retirement talk as he is of the belief to make further more contribution to the team. James Anderson will be celebrating his 41st birthday on Sunday but age is not the concern for him as he still holds the record of being the England’s leading-wicket taker with 690 Test wickets.
“As soon as you get into your 30s as a bowler, people are asking how long you’ve got left. But in the past three or four years, I’ve bowled as well as I ever have,” Anderson told the BBC.
“I feel like I’ve been in so much control, my body has been in a good place, my skills are as good as they ever have been. In terms of retirement, I’ve got no interest in going any time soon. I feel like I’ve got a lot more to give,” stated Anderson.
In the ongoing Ashes series, Anderson has been able take six wickets which was little unsual for Anderson but he still has time to ameliorate his tally of wickets as there is still one more innings to go in the fifth and final ashes Test.
