After a grueling series of tests against Kohli’s India in the summer the Brit has set his sights on one of the best batsmen in Australia ahead of the Ashes in December-January.
“As a bowler you always look at the best player, and for me over the last three, four or five years, Steve Smith’s been Australia’s best player,” Anderson said on a Fox podcast.
It’s for sure that the Aussies remember Anderson pretty well from the last Ashes where he got 17 wickets at an amazing rate of 27.82. Since that intense series of tests, he’s played 32 more test matches for England, getting them 109 wickets out of which 13.5% of the wickets were against India in the summer.
When asked about his physical fitness to play all 5 Ashes matches, he had this to say;
“I will do exactly what I did in our summer, hopefully I’ll be playing all five, but I’d be happy with three or four.”
A confident Anderson looks to continue his staggering momentum throughout the Ashes this year.
