Anderson's Glowing Tribute To Cook

James Anderson says, breaking Glenn Mcgrath's all-time record for test wickets for a fast bowler doesn't mean that much to him while he is still playing.

The England paceman became the most successful fast bowler in test cricket on 564 wickets after claiming the final wicket in England's 118-run victory at the oval, London, UK, which sealed a 4-1 series victory.

The 36-year-old said he was more concerned with giving Alastair Cook a good send-off and securing victory in the fifth and final Test.

He is now fourth on the all-time list behind a trio of spinners -- Muttiah Muralitharan (800), Shane Warne (708) and Anil Kumble (619).

Anderson was given a standing ovation as he left the field with cook, England's most-capped test player, record run scorer and century-maker.
