Test-best Anderson bowls England to Windies series win


England fast bowler James Anderson is the new No.1 ranked Test bowler in the latest update of the International Cricket Council's rankings.

Anderson delivered a swing bowling masterclass as he recorded career-best figures of seven for 42 - which included his 500th Test scalp - to steer England towards victory in the Investec series decider.

Tom Westley: His neat and unbeaten 44 showed he has the temperament for Test cricket - he fancied it - but jury still out on his technique because only six of those runs were made against pace.

"I didn't think I'd play as much as I have for England, and to do it in a team that is thoroughly enjoyable one to play with makes a series win such as this extra special".

"I'm very pleased", Yorkshire batsman Root told BBC Radio's Test Match Special after what was England's last match at this level match before they begin their Ashes defence against Australia in Brisbane in November.

On Saturday, day three of the final Test that turned out to be the final day, Anderson returned with career-best figures of 7/42 in his 129th Test.

England, though, suffered second-Test defeats in both the South Africa and West Indies series. But Hope's fourth ball after the interval saw him undone by a superb Anderson leg-cutter and caught behind.

The Headingley match featured twin hundreds from Shai Hope - his first centuries in Test cricket - and the 23-year-old underlined his promise with two more impressive innings in hard conditions at Lord's. Opener Kieran Powell too moved upwards along with Kemar Roach and captain Jason Holder. "Credit must go to our bowlers and obviously Shai was outstanding in this entire series, and Kraigg (Brathwaite) did a hell of a job too - especially at Headingley". "We let ourselves down by dropping quite a few chances and giving good players two opportunities to bat".

"Kudos to those guys for helping me out so it's all about me going out there and exhibiting what I've learnt".
