Christchurch - England quick James Anderson became the most
over-worked seam bowler in Test cricket history on Tuesday when he fired down
his 30 020th delivery.
Midway through the final day of the second Test against New
Zealand in Christchurch, he overtook the previous record of 30 019 held by West
Indies great Courtney Walsh who retired in 2001.
Walsh in his career took 519 wickets at 24.44 while Anderson
has 531 dismissals at 27.34.
Anderson is now fourth on the list of players to have bowled
the most deliveries in Test cricket with the top three all spinners, headed by
Sri Lanka's Muttiah Muralitharan with 44 039.
