James Anderson has so far taken 1002 wickets in 261 first-class matches. 51st he has got the five-wicket haul, while it has happened 6 times, when he has managed to take 10 wickets in both the innings.

You will be surprised to know that Anderson is the 14th player and fifth fast bowler to take 1000 first-class wickets in cricket history. Before Anderson, Andy Caddick (in 2005), Martin Bicknell (in 2004), Devon Malcolm (in 2002) and Wasim Akram (in 2001) did this feat.
During this, he made seven batsmen of Kent’s team his victim. This player is a big threat to both the teams in the five-match Test series against India starting on August 4, and then the historic Ashes against Australia at the end of the year.
