Anderson: It has been an incredible two weeks

England

England fast bowler James Anderson hailed the last two weeks as 'incredible' after becoming his country's leading bowler in Test cricket on the tour to the West Indies, and said he is eager to carry on and get to the 400 wicket milestone.

Anderson went past former England allrounder Ian Botham's record of 383 wickets in the drawn first Test against the Windies in Antigua, then bowled a spell that turned the game for England to win the second match in Grenada.

There has been a suggestion that the 32 year-old Anderson might be rested for the third and final Test in Barbados this week because of a gruelling summer schedule ahead, but he is having none of it and wants to take more wickets for his country.

Anderson wrote in his column for The Sun: "It has been an incredible two weeks – almost certainly the most emotional and satisfying of my career. To beat Sir Ian Botham's record in my 100th Test was fairytale stuff.

"Having my wife and children in Antigua and my parents at both games has made it more special. Mum was planning to come just for the first hour or so on Saturday but ended up staying the whole day. I think they were quite proud.

"To have an extra couple of days' rest before the third Test on Friday is very welcome. But I still feel fit, strong and I have a few more wickets in me yet."
