All-Star Hall of Fame Honour Cap: Goodbye James Anderson

James Anderson Honour Cap
James Anderson England Cricket Honour Cap.

Presenting the Hall of Fame Honour Cap to James Anderson for his 20-years of service to England Cricket.

The right-arm fast swing bowler will hang up his boots this summer at the first Test at Lords. The long room, famous for its enthusiastic crowd and special honours, will see Anderson walk through it one last time.

A Legendary Honour Cap For James Anderson, Who Retires In The Place It All Began

It was in 2003 when our TVs first saw the appearance of James Anderson in test conditions. Taking on Zimbabwe at the home of cricket, the current 41-year-old heralded a five-wicket haul – one of 43 Englishmen ever to do so.

187 matches later, Anderson has 700 test wickets under his belt and is known as one of the best seam bowlers in the world. From his first wicket in 2003 to his 700th record-breaking wicket against India’s Kuldeep Yadav, it’s safe to say that Anderson is one of the world’s most challenging bowlers. His out-swinging stock delivery sets him apart from other seam bowlers in tandem with his inswinger, cutters and yorkers with both a brand new, swinging red ball to the slightly older ball, which he’s able to reverse swing.

What Happens for Anderson Now?

While he has been on the record saying that he still wants to play for England but that the time is right to part ways, Anderson has a whole heap of opportunity awaiting him. There is no way that the current England set-up will let him walk away with barrels of talent pouring out of him.

If he’s interested, he’ll likely do some commentary – a bit like Alistair Cook after his retirement. But with Brendan McCullen wanting to build a future of England cricket bowlers, it would be no surprise if he joins as England’s new bowling coach to help mentor young bowlers like Tongue and Potts.

Speaking to the BBC, Anderson said:

“I feel excited about what the future might hold, whether that is potentially to stick around with the team this summer in a different sort of capacity. It would be nice.”
