James Anderson set to end career at Lords

Veteran England paceman Jimmy Anderson will retire from Test match cricket during the summer.

Anderson has represented England in 187 Tests since making his debut against Zimbabwe at Lord’s in 2003, taking 32 five-wicket hauls in Test cricket.

The 41-year-old announced that this July's first Test against the West Indies at Lord's would be his 188th and last.

"It's been an incredible 20 years representing my country, playing the game I've loved since I was a kid," wrote Anderson.

Sri Lanka’s Muttiah Muralitharan (800) and Australia’s Shane Warne (708) are the only cricketers who have taken more Test wickets than Anderson.
