Anderson ends landmark week atop ICC Test bowling rankings

Anderson ends landmark week atop ICC Test bowling rankings

James Anderson's historic performance in England's series-clinching third-Test win over West Indies will live with the seamer for a long time.

As if he had not taken centre-stage enough already, James Anderson was again to the fore with another wonderful exhibition of swing bowling which was rewarded with figures of seven for 42, the best of his career.

Roach, meanwhile, scooped 5-72, his seventh five-for in Tests, after adding the wickets of Dawid Malan, Jonny Bairstow and Moeen Ali to his opening day dismissals of Alastair Cook and Mark Stoneman.

With that, England won the series 2-1 to continue from their 3-1 win over South Africa.

Anderson, who was the top-ranked bowler in August a year ago, reclaimed the top spot to become the oldest bowler to do so since Australian legend Glenn McGrath (January 2006) and Sri Lankan legend Muttiah Muralidaran (July 2009).

However, West Indies would rue the chances dropped in the third and final Test.

Hope, who scored a century in each innings of the second Test at Headingley when the West Indies squared the series, batted throughout the opening session, playing one glorious cover drive to the boundary off Ben Stokes and brought up his half-century with an equally delightful push to the mid-wicket boundary.

But no other batsman made more than opener Kieran Powell's 45.

"The control he has when the ball is doing a minimal amount, or when it is hooping around, is remarkable".

West Indies' tail folded cheaply with Anderson, fittingly, ending the innings when he bowled Kemar Roach.

But despite the improved batting conditions, it only needed four balls on Saturday for Anderson to take another wicket.

Chase was out for his overnight three and West Indies were 94 for four.
