    it appears i forgot pakistan/uae from this analysis. to be fair to anderson he averages 33 with the kookaburra and 23 with the duke.

    tim southee averages 28 with a kookaburra and 29 with a duke

    colin de grandhomme averages 31 with a kookaburra and has never used a duke

    pat cummins averages 21 with a kookaburra and 19 with a duke.

    i am going for a run now. i expect to see stimulating discussion undivided by nationality when i return.

    While on that run, perhaps engage your brain and understand why making jokes about ‘all the English dying of covid’ is a pretty ****** thing to say, especially at this moment in time. 36000 people have died here ffs. You don’t even have the balls to apologise and instead made yourself look like a morally bankrupt wanker. I thought you were better than this tbh, sad to see you making comments like that.

    Confirmation that Anderson would be another Ben Hilfenhaus if he was Australian. Thank you for these facts Phlegm.

    There is more to it than just the brand of ball - though that obviously is a big factor.

    Anderson is a bowler who relies heavily on swing and although the Duke may swing more, the conditions in Australia are not as conducive to swing as other parts of the world. This is well illustrated by looking at the Test performances of another fine swing bowler - Australia's Terry Alderman. In England, where he played 12 Tests, he averaged 19.3 while his 20 Tests in Australia yielded 15 fewer wickets at an average of 29.4 . Furthermore, his other 9 Tests (played in New Zealand, Pakistan and the West Indies) yielded 19 wickets at 52.3 . Horses for courses!!

    The fact remains that James Anderson has taken more wickets than any other pace bowler in the history of the game.

    It's a pity that Anderson's critics can't show the same good grace as Glenn McGrath (whose record Anderson broke) when McGrath said. “If he can raise the bar to 600 wickets, that's an incredible effort. I was proud to hold it for as long as I did - for it to be beaten by somebody like Jimmy Anderson is great. I have a lot of respect for Jimmy. He's been an incredible bowler for a long time. To have played well over 140 Tests and just keep running in, day in, day out, and remain at the top of his game, I'm very proud Jimmy's got there. When it comes to the art of swing bowling, there is no-one better.”

    In turn, Anderson was humble after breaking the record, acknowledging McGrath as a far superior bowler.

    Anderson has achieved what he has through hard-work and dedication. He will never be regarded as good as some of the great fast bowlers but he has been (and might continue to be) very, very good.

    Anderson on song in English conditions was as good as Hadlee on song in NZ. The only thing that doesn't make him an ATG maybe is that he isn't an all conditions bowler.

    And do not consider me an Anderson fanboy, he got Tendulkar out 9 times in tests, so I like every other Indian fan have every reason to dislike him.

    I think a lot of his soundbytes over the years have not helped his reputation with the casual cricket fans. But purely as a bowler, he is a class act. He has actually played a major role in away wins for England in Australia and India, inspite of him not being as great in those conditions as he was at home. I really don't know what else a bowler has to achieve to be regarded as great. To me, he is surely a great, perhaps just below the ATG level but a great of the game nonetheless.
