NEW DELHI: James Anderson‘s farewell match at Lord’s was marked by a heartwarming moment as his daughters had the privilege of ringing the iconic bell before the start of opening day’s play against West Indies on Wednesday.
The legendary fast bowler, who has taken a record-breaking 700 Test wickets, received a standing ovation and a wave of applause from the crowd as he stepped onto the field for his 188th and final Test.

England captain Ben Stokes won the toss and chose to field against the West Indies, a decision that was met with resounding cheers from the spectators at the “Home of Cricket.”

The overcast conditions seemed to favour Anderson, known for his exceptional swing bowling skills. Fans and pundits alike anticipated that the conditions would provide the perfect stage for Anderson to demonstrate his mastery one last time.
However, the ringing of the bell by Anderson’s daughters evoked an emotional response from their father, adding to the significance of the moment.

With a career spanning two decades, Anderson’s legacy in Test cricket is unparalleled among fast bowlers. His achievements include not just his 700 wickets but also numerous match-winning performances and memorable spells that have left an indelible mark on the sport.
Only Sachin Tendulkar has played more matches (200) in this format, underscoring the rarity and magnitude of Anderson’s endurance and excellence.
Anderson’s final match at Lord’s was not only a fitting farewell for a remarkable cricketer but also a moment of reflection on his extraordinary journey and the legacy he leaves behind in the pages of cricket history.
