India Vs England 5th Test Day 5: James Anderson Breaks Glenn McGrath’s Record

England’s James Anderson took the last wicket to wind up as the best quick bowler in Test cricket and secure a 118-run triumph in the 5th Test against India at The Oval.

The 36-year-old rocked the stumps of Mohammed Shami, to guarantee his 564th wicket, outperforming the record of Australia’s Glenn McGrath. It anchored a 4-1 series triumph for England, who were held up for a significant part of the 5th day, courtesy of hundreds scored by KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant.

India Vs England 5th Test Day 4: Alastair Cook Scores A Farewell Century

Be that as it may, a dazzling leg-break from Adil Rashid expelled Rahul as the visitors tumbled from 325-5 to 345 in no time.

Anderson drew level with McGrath’s record with two speedy wickets, however he and England could not constrain triumph on Tuesday until late into the last session.

Rahul and Pant’s 204-run stand gave India some hope an unrealistic triumph, however Rashid expelled the two players in progressive overs, to allow England a much deserved win.

The last three wickets fell rapidly: Ishant Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja both edged Sam Curran behind before Anderson played Shami with a full, straight delivery.

The players were then lead out of the field, by Alastair Cook in his last Test series for England.
