History made by Jimmy Anderson with the final wicket of the series. Highest wicket taker in Test history. amazing achievement. Fair play to him. 4-1 probably harsh on India for the series. Very hard for away sides in Test cricket.

It was quite the way for the series to end, and possibly for Anderson to bow out as well. Their most successful batsman and bowler both to go out on a high?

With Andersonís reduced schedule Iíd be surprised if he didnít fancy one last Ashes series.

Oh I'd say he'll definitely continue for that at least. He's still bowling very well.

Although he has more wickets than McGrath he is a long way behind on average runs per wicket and will never narrow the gap which will probably widen as he manages more wickets against Sri Lanka. Most of Anderson's success has been gained on well prepared home wickets that suit him and Broad.

Anderson (McGrath)
Overs:   5250.0 (4874.4)
Balls:   31500  (29248)
Maidens:   1323    (1470)
Runs Conceded:   15140   (12186)
Wickets:   564   (563)
Average:   26.84   (21.64)
5 Wickets in Innings:   26   (29)
10 Wickets in Match:   3     (3)
Economy Rate:   2.88    (2.50)
Strike Rate:   55.85  (51.95)

Unlike many McGrath came to England and was equally successful he wasnít a home wicket bowler. Like many Australian bowlers he had pace and technique to take wickets on most pitches.

Telling point is the McGrath is he achieved more over fewer tests.
