London, Sept 11 (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News, app - 12th Sep, 2018 ) :James Anderson was hailed as "England's greatest cricketer" by the retiring Alastair Cook on Tuesday shortly after he became the most prolific fast bowler in Test history.
"It's been a privilege to play with, I think, England's greatest cricketer," said man-of-the-match Cook.
"No disrespect to any other guys but his skill to do it time in, time out. You almost take it for granted that he is going to hit a length from ball one to over 90. It shouldn't be like that. It's fitting he knocked out middle stump.
" Anderson, who now has 564 scalps, said he was happy his friend was on the field to witness his record.
"I didn't think I'd bowl 14 overs from that end. Thankfully Joe let me take the new ball eventually which gave me a chance to get that wicket.
