James Anderson, Six Sports

James Anderson is a living legend and a great bowler hailing from England. He made his test debut in the year 2003 against Zimbabwe. The journey has been 20 years long and the cricketer still wants to enjoy the journey. James Anderson will turn 40 this summer and there has been news about his retirement. The Cricket Board of England must have to find his replacement within the time frame. But he urges to play more matches in the upcoming future. Alister Cook once advised the board to make him the bowling coach of the England team.

England uncapped player Sammy Cook can be Anderson’s replacement

Sam Cook, new emerging talent is looked upon as the replacement of James Anderson. He plays for Essex and also bowls pretty well. He is young and talented and can be looked upon for future terms. Recently he registered a 10-wicket haul for Essex. In County Championship, he picked up 198 wickets with an average of 19.70. In this ongoing season, he already picked 36 wickets with a good average of 16.

Westly statement:

“We could keep talking about Sammy Cook and I have done relentlessly, but he’s absolutely world-class, I don’t think there’s a better seamer. The stats will back it up, he gets wickets in the first innings, the second innings, at Chelmsford and away from Chelmsford and he’s phenomenal. We’re very lucky to have him at Essex. I haven’t seen a seamer bowl better than him whenever we’ve played against any team. He’s improving year on year.”

Replacing Anderson is a matter of immense pressure for this young talent. James has already played 175 test matches for England. He even played with the greatest batsman in this world. But the young player looks promising. He is improving year after year. So in the future, we might see him representing England in international matches.
