England and West Indies have always enjoyed a pace laden attack, and the upcoming Test series will once again serve as a testament to it.
Prior to the three-match Test series against England, West Indies pacer Kemar Roach has said that he is a big fan of James Anderson.
Roach lauded Anderson for maintaining an incredible level of consistency throughout his career.
“I am a huge fan of James Anderson. His skill level is so high. His consistency is amazing. And the way he has played for so long, to keep himself so fit, it is pretty amazing what all he has done for England and for cricket all over the world and for fast bowling. I watch his videos a lot. I would love to emulate him someday,” ESPNCricinfo quoted the Caribbean cricketer as saying.
With an ability to move the ball both ways, the veteran English quick is consistent with his lengths and lines. While pace bowling is very tough and can take a toll on the body, Roach opined the Anderson has achieved a fantastic feat of playing over 150 Test matches.
The 37-year-old Anderson has played 151 Tests so far and has managed to take 584 Test wickets. He is on the fourth spot in the list of most wickets taken in Test cricket.
Anderson has the most number of wickets for an English bowler in Test cricket and he has also taken most wickets for a pace bowler in the longest format of the game.
While all international cricket was suspended since March due to the coronavirus pandemic, this three-match series between England and West Indies comes as a blessing which will also mark the return of international cricket.
The first Test between England and West Indies will commence from July 8 at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton.
