James Anderson, the England fast bowler, is nearing the age of 39 and he hasn’t run out of gas. Though he doesn’t play ODIs and T20Is for the Three Lions, he has continued playing in the purest form of the sport. Among the fast bowlers, he is the all-time highest wicket-taker with 614 scalps from 160 games with as many as 30 five-wicket hauls and three 10-wicket hauls.

But quite often, he has been deemed as a bowler, who could get wickets only in overcast conditions. However, he put the doubts to rest in England’s previous tour of India. On the tour where the pitches didn’t quite help the fast bowlers, Anderson showed his class. He went through the defence of a few batters and then rattled their woodworks.

In the meantime, the Barmy Army posted a video where Anderson can be seen, dismissing Indian batters with a couple of vicious in-swingers. Barmy Army captioned the video and wrote, “To all the India fans in our mentions saying Jimmy ‘Clouderson'” Later the Indian fans also reacted to the video.

Here’s how the Indian fans reacted

Anderson, who’s standing on 992 wickets in his first-class career, sounded a bit irritated by the noises around him. He reckons that he has the tenacity to keep playing the sport as he nears his 40s. Anderson is also on the verge of equalling Alastair Cook as the player with the most Test caps for England.

“The thing that frustrates me the most. And it happens in this country more than most: you get to a certain age and people begin saying you have to start slowing down or you’re losing the ability to do your job. But I’m not sure from my own experience that’s the case,” Anderson was quoted as saying in The Guardian.

“I have never had those thoughts, that I’ve had enough or it’s getting too much. It’s probably down to having never had the captaincy. With Cooky, it possibly all added up in the end. I mean, I guess I go into every season asking if I can cope but I’ve started this year as well as any with the ball. There’s no reason I can’t keep going,” he stated.
