England legend Jimmy Anderson to retire from Test cricket

Legendary England fast bowler Jimmy Anderson will retire from Test match cricket this summer.

The 41-year-old announced on social media 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,” Anderson wrote in a statement.

“I’m going to miss walking out for England so much.

“But I know the time is right to step aside and let others realise their dreams just like I got to, because there is no greater feeling.”

Anderson made his debut for England in an ODI against Australia at the MCG in 2002 aged 20.
