The Ashes, England vs Australia, 4th Test: James Anderson Is 2nd To Only Sachin Tendulkar In This Epic Milestone

 Anderson, who played 168 Tests in total surpassed the likes of former Australian captains Ricky Ponting and Steve Waugh to stand second in the list of most caps in the longest format. However, Legendary Indian batter Sachin Tendulkar still tops the list with 200 Tests played for the national side.

In all his tests, Anderson has 639 wickets to his name which is the most by any fast bowler in the history of the game.

Broad has 151 Test caps (including the ongoing SCG Test) and has claimed 527 Test wickets for the national side.

Anderson, returned to the side for the next two Tests and the ongoing fourth game at the SCG.

However, England's fortunes didn't change much as they lost the first three games to surrender the series tamely to their arch-rivals.

The visitors were humiliated in the third Test match played at the Melbourne Cricket Ground by an innings and 14 runs as they lost the three 3-0 with two Tests still to go at that time.
