Anderson has Sobers-like day

Possibly taking inspiration from the great Sir Garfield Sobers who was in attendance Jimmy Anderson scored his highest test score 28 during a prelunch eighthwicket stand of 76 with Stuart Broad. He then took the new ball and proceeded to take all six New Zealand wickets to fall with his whippy outswing bowling. 3rd Test June 2008.

Anderson comes across as very shy. He was taken back with Nasser's comparison of him to Sobers. Anderson needs to be more aggressive as a fast bowler.

Anderson has a long way to go to be even mentioned in the same breath as Sobers. At least he was visibly embarrassed when Nasser put this to him.
