James Anderson has blossomed into a hugely effective new-ball bowler and the undisputed leader of England’s Test attack.
Anderson initially burst onto the world scene at the age of 20 as a raw and exciting paceman.
Called into England’s one-day squad for the triangular series in Australia, having started the year playing for Burnley in the Lancashire League, he made a positive impression with 11 wickets in his first six outings and outstanding figures of 1-12 from 10 overs in his next appearance against the host nation.
He enjoyed further success in the subsequent World Cup, producing a man-of-the-match display versus Pakistan, and then picked up a five-wicket haul against Zimbabwe on Test debut at Lord’s.
During late 2012 Anderson was instrumental as England claimed their first Test series win in India for 28 years.
He showed his class again with a 10-wicket display as England edged a tense first 2013 Ashes Test at Trent Bridge that ultimately set up a 3-0 series triumph.
April 2015, James took his 384th test wicket for England against the West Indies, and in doing so surpassed Sir Ian Botham’s 26 year old record to become England’s greatest ever bowler.
Jimmy likes to wear our Tron:Z DuoLoop to keep him in good health and at the head of England’s Attack.
