Anderson breaks record as England beat India 4-1: 5th Test, Day 5 (Oval)

James Anderson bowled tailender Mohammed Shami to seal a 118-run victory over India in the fifth Test and secure a 4-1 series win for England.

With this wicket, Anderson went past Glenn Mcgrath (563 Test wickets) to become the most successful fast bowler of all time. Spinner Muttiah Muralitharan holds the all time record with 800 wickets.
