Stuart Broad reads the words “700-wicket carrot” in front of him regarding James Anderson’s potential future


James Anderson and Stuart Broad’s quick bowling combination gave many elite batters sleepless nights, and cricket fans marvelled at their ability to dismantle batting combinations. The latter had an outstanding Ashes series, finishing with the most wickets for England. At Kennington Oval in London, where he played his farewell international match, the 37-year-old dismissed Alex Carey with his final England delivery.

Broad believed that Anderson, a 41-year-old veteran of the England team, would soon surpass the milestone of 700 Test wickets for his career. Currently, the Burnley native has 690 wickets. He’s 41 years old and still performing admirably. He’s still in excellent physical shape. He’s still having a great time with it and is quite eager to keep going. We collaborated on a handful of commentary stents and had a great time. Hopefully, that will serve as a foreshadowing of things to come in the future, Broad said.

The most seasoned bowler for England fell far short of his high expectations during the recently concluded Ashes. The veteran only managed to take five wickets at an average of 85.40 in the four matches he played. Between January and March 2024, England will take part in a five-match Test series in India.
