England’s legendary Test pacer James Anderson is the first pacer to reach 950 wickets. He completed the landmark during the second Test of the series against South Africa. Anderson revealed two names he has muted on his Twitter timeline – Glenn McGrath and Rishabh Pant.
McGrath is one of the best pacers in the history of cricket, while Pant came to the limelight when he played a rather unorthodox reverse-sweep against Anderson last year.
During a video where Anderson was asked to narrate the list of words he has muted on his Twitter timeline, Pant and McGrath were included in addition to “reverse,” “sweep,” and “reverse-sweep.”
The list also featured the word ‘Clouderson’, a term given by fans who feel the England bowler only performs under cloudy conditions. Another phrase in the list was ‘worse than Steyn’.
Anderson, who has represented England in 176 Tests, is 36 wickets away from reaching the 700-wicket mark.
