England legend James Anderson blazes trail with seven-wicket County haul before farewell Test

This dominant performance against Nottinghamshire serves as a fitting reminder of Anderson's incredible talent.

James Anderson, the legendary England fast bowler, is in red-hot form just days before his final Test appearance. In his first County Championship match of the season for Lancashire, Anderson ripped through the Nottinghamshire batting line-up, claiming a stunning seven-wicket haul.

The 41-year-old Anderson, gearing up for his last Test against the West Indies starting July 10th, showcased his enduring skill with a remarkable opening spell. This match against Nottinghamshire marked his competitive return since the fifth Test against India in March.

Masterful bowling on display

James Anderson wasted no time in making his presence felt. His opening 10 overs yielded an exceptional 6-19 bowling spell, with former England batsman Haseeb Hameed being his first victim. Anderson’s relentless accuracy and control throughout the innings proved too much for the Nottinghamshire batsmen.
