VOTE: Is Jimmy England's best ever bowler?

As we eagerly anticipate England’s return to Emirates Old Trafford this summer, we would like to know whether you think Lancashire CCC and England legend James Anderson is the greatest ever bowler for the Three Lions.

James Anderson, who broke through the youth system at Lancashire County Cricket Club back in 2002, made his international debut for England in a One-Day International against bitter rivals Australia an Melbourne that same year.

Now...Fast-forward fifteen years and 335 England matches later, James Anderson is one of the most feared bowlers in world cricket and is the country’s highest wicket-taker of all time with over 750 for the Three Lions.

But, does Jimmy come out on top as your greatest ever bowler for England?

With the likes of Matthew Hoggard, Stuart Broad, Graeme Swann and Ian Botham – Jimmy certainly has tough competition, and we would like to know whether ‘The King of Swing’ takes the top spot in your list of England’s greatest ever bowlers.

Have your say below:

RESULTS: Is Joe Root the best No.3 batsman?

Last week, we asked you whether you though Joe Root was currently the best no.3 batsman in world cricket.

…and boy do we have the answer.

Out of all the votes, and there were a lot! 92% of fans voted that Joe Root IS the best no.3 batsman in world cricket. Let’s remind ourselves of his devastating ability with a look back at his outstanding innings at Emirates Old Trafford last year.

Odd question to ask "is Jimmy Anderson England's best ever bowler". Certainly one of the best. His luck with fitness has helped him. No-one could pretend that he or anyone is better than Ian Botham or Brian Statham or Fred Trueman. Comparisons are pointless. His stats are amazing but stats don't tell the whole story.
