This test match between England and West Indies will be played at Lord's Stadium in London from July 10. Anderson is currently the highest wicket-taking fast bowler in test cricket. He has taken 700 wickets in 187 test matches.

41-year-old James Anderson is still fully fit, but England's management wanted him to retire. The English Cricket Board (ECB) is trying to find an alternative to Anderson, who can handle the team's bowling attack in the Ashes series against Australia. Anderson has announced his retirement at the request of the ECB. Now he is going to play his last Test match.
