James Anderson, the pace bowler with a record 180 Test matches, has established himself as a legend in cricket. His longevity and dedication to the sport are commendable, evidenced by his leading tally of 686 wickets among fast bowlers in Test cricket. Anderson’s adaptability and effectiveness across various playing conditions have set him apart from his peers.
However, Indian pacer Ishant Sharma believes that former cricketer Zaheer Khan is better than Anderson, citing the favorable conditions in England where Anderson primarily played.
Zak. He is better than Jimmy Anderson. (Ishant told in a recent podcast interview)
Ishant clarified a past incident involving Zaheer, expressing his respect for the veteran bowler. While opinions may differ, both Anderson and Zaheer have made significant contributions to the game.
