Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, Shubman Gill: Sachin Tendulkar, who is called God of Cricket and former captain of India, former captain of Team India Virat Kohli and young batsman of Indian team Shubman Gill. All three players scored a lot of runs for India. However, the times of all three were different. These three players have many things in common. That is, there is a lot of similarity, but the common thing which you might not know is that the biggest enemy of these three players on the field is the same. Especially when we talk about Test cricket. Let us know who that player is and why.
Anderson has dismissed Sachin the most number of times in Tests.
Sachin Tendulkar started his career in the year 1989. After this he continued playing continuously till 2013. During this period, Sachin Tendulkar created many new records, which are still unbroken. Sachin Tendulkar may have scored more than 15 thousand runs in Test cricket, but one bowler troubled him the most. He is James Anderson of England. Would you believe that the bowler who dismissed Sachin the most number of times has also dismissed Kohli the most number of times in Tests. Not only this, Shubman Gill has also been out the most number of times on the ball of the same bowler in his short career. Even though Sachin, Kohli and Gill are bowlers of different generations, they have been dismissed by the same bowler the most number of times in Tests.
Anderson has dismissed Sachin 9 times, after this Muralitharan’s name
Sachin Tendulkar has been dismissed by James Anderson 9 times in Test cricket, which is the most by any bowler. If we talk about the second bowler, he is Sri Lankan Muttiah Muralitharan, who has sent Sachin to the pavilion 8 times. Now let’s talk about Virat Kohli. Virat Kohli made his international cricket debut in 2008. His debut in Test was in the year 2011. That is, when Sachin’s career was moving towards the end, then young Kohli had stepped in. Kohli has so far scored more than 8 thousand runs in Test cricket. But James Anderson has dismissed him most times in this format. Kohli has been Anderson’s victim 7 times. Nathan Lyon has also dismissed Kohli the same number of times.
Anderson has also dismissed Shubman Gill 5 times in Tests.
Currently a 5 test match series is being played between India and England. In this, James Anderson is playing for his team, but Kohli has withdrawn his name. If Kohli had been playing in this series then who knows he would have become a victim of Anderson once more. The interesting thing is that not only Sachin and Kohli, even Shubman has been out on Anderson’s ball most of the times in his career. Shubman has played only 22 Tests so far and in that time he has lost his wicket 5 times to Anderson’s ball. This shows how tall a bowler James Anderson is.
Anderson is bowling even at the age of 41, close to 700 test wickets
James Anderson is currently 41 years old, but he is playing for his team as a pacer. James Anderson, who has played 184 Tests, has so far taken 695 wickets in his name and is just 5 short of completing 700 wickets. If he gets a chance in the playing eleven in the remaining three more Test matches, he can complete this record in a few days from now. But it will be interesting to see how many more days Anderson continues to play Test cricket for England.
