Who will perform better?

Star Online Report

James Anderson

James Anderson has proved himself as one of the most skilful and prolific fast bowlers in England's history. His talents have been particularly apparent in Test cricket where his command of swing bowling, especially on his home grounds, has been the stuff of artistry, bearing comparison with any swing bowler in any age.
He has been an integral part of three victorious Ashes campaigns and finished the 2014 English summer only four wickets short of beating Ian Botham's England Test-wickets record of 383. His one-day career has also been more productive than at one time seemed likely as he gradually became adept at bowling in a more defensive fashion.
