James Anderson of England, one of the best fast bowlers in the world, can beat master blaster Sachin Tendulkar in a particular situation.

Anderson will begin the summer season against New Zealand in a Test series.

On July 10, Anderson will turn 39, but he remains one of the best fast bowlers in the world.

He holds the record for most wickets among fast bowlers with 614 in 160 Tests.

In the meanwhile, England must play seven Test matches at home during the summer season, and Anderson can set some other personal records aside from bowling.

Tendulkar holds the record for playing the most Test matches in India.

Tendulkar has appeared in 200 Test matches, with 94 of them taking place in India.
This is an all-time high.

If England fails to implement the rotation programme and Anderson plays all seven matches, Tendulkar’s record will be surpassed by this England fast bowler.

Anderson has stated that he intends to play all five Test matches against India, as well as both matches against New Zealand, in the five-match series.

He has played 89 Test matches in England so far, and if he plays in all seven, he will break Tendulkar’s record of 96.

Tendulkar is currently followed by Ricky Ponting (92), Anderson, Alastair Cook of England, and Steve Waugh of Australia (all 89 matches).

Anderson will easily beat England’s previous record.

During this time, he can recall Cook’s two recordings.

Cook holds the record for the most Test matches played by England (161).

He also has a chance to pass Shivnarine Chanderpaul (164), Rahul Dravid (164), and Jock Kallis (166) for the most Test matches played.
