Congratulations @jimmy9 for this outstanding achievement of 600 wickets. Definitely one of the best bowlers I've faced.— Virat Kohli (@imVkohli) August 25, 2020
Never thought I’d see in my lifetime a fast bowler take 600 test wickets! It’s not just the quantity but the quality with which he has bowled - be it slow or fast wickets, bounce or no bounce, seam or no seam, for him conditions never mattered! Sir @jimmy9 you are the #GOAT pic.twitter.com/ADrrW7m3zp— Yuvraj Singh (@YUVSTRONG12) August 25, 2020
Anderson wishes to continue playing:
At the age of 38, when most of the athletes have retired, Anderson had some outstanding achievements & now reaching to 600 wickets milestone would just be an add on to it. Anderson wishes to continue playing until 2021-22 Ashes in Australia & will look forward to adding on his milestones.
