Good luck to him if he does.
Here are someIt might be hard for him to get through two seasons. When fast bowlers decline it tends to happen rapidly. They lose a bit of nip and the ball that a year ago would catch the edge gets dispatched to the boundary. Look at Gillespie for the prime example.
Not saying it'll happen to Anderson but 35 is very old for a quick.
Anderson is to Steyn what Wasim is to McGrath. The former two are more 'talented', the latter two are more consistently better at getting batsmen out.Yeah, most talented and best are not the same thing. There are a few people with the opinion that Anderson is more talented than Steyn (I presume because he can swing it both ways) but really, only an idiot would say Anderson is better than him.
Someone will overtake McGrath. Maybe it will be Anderson and maybe it won't. But someone will. Records are made to be broken.
Do you really care that much though? The greatest Batsman of all time isn't the leading run-scorer. Nor does he have the highest individual score.
I think the other way. Bowling should have symmetry with batting where the most talented players are hidden way down the list of aggregates.
