Old Trafford| Legendary England pacer James Anderson took seven wickets for 19 runs for Lancashire against Kent in the County Championship match here on Tuesday. With this Anderson completed 1000 wickets in first-class cricket.

The record for most first-class wickets is held by former England left-arm spinner Wilfred Rhodes, who has 4,204 wickets to his name.

Anderson, 38, has taken 617 Test wickets and is just three wickets away from Anil Kumble (619 wickets). With Kumble leaving behind, he will become the third-highest wicket-taker in Tests behind Sri Lanka’s Muttiah Muralitharan (800) and Australian Shane Warne (708).

Last month, the pacer set the record for most Tests played for England. Anderson had overtaken former captain Alistair Cook. He has played 162 test matches so far.

England will rely on Anderson’s experience in the five-match Test series against India starting next month in Nottingham.
