Lancashire seamer Anderson joined Ian Botham (383), Bob Willis (325) and the late Fred Trueman (307), the first man in history to take 300 Test wickets, in a select quartet of England bowlers. The 30-year-old Anderson started the match needing two more wickets for his 300th in Tests.
And, after England had been bowled out for 232 in their first innings yesterday, he reached the milestone with a new-ball burst of two wickets for no runs in 17 balls to reduce New Zealand to seven for two Hamish Rutherford became his 299th Test wicket, with the aid of a fine first slip catch by England captain Alastair Cook, before another full-length ball took Fulton’s outside edge and was well-held by second slip Graeme Swann. But by tea, New Zealand had recovered to 54 for two.
