James Anderson On Ben Stokes: Senior fast bowler James Anderson’s reaction has come to the fore after veteran all-rounder Ben Stokes became the Test captain of England. Let us tell you that Ben Stokes was appointed as the new Test captain of the England cricket team on Thursday. At the same time, Rob was made the Managing Director of Cricket.
James Anderson and Stuart Broad are among the top-10 wicket-takers in Test cricket with 640 and 537 wickets respectively. He was dropped from England’s three-match series in the West Indies in March, which they lost 1–0. Joe Root stepped down as Test captain after the series against the West Indies, when England won just one of their last 17 Tests.
James Anderson told BBC Radio Lancashire, "Stuart Broad and I were hoping that our career was not over. So it’s good to hear that there is an opportunity. This means that we have to perform well in our county teams to prove that we are playing well."
