“I would love to bowl at Virat again” – James Anderson
After the third and final match between India and England, in a pre-match discussion on Sony Sports, the 39-year-old said that he would love to bowl at Virat once again. Notably, this rivarly started in 2014, when India toured England. The former Indian skipper had a horrible tour and got out to Anderson four times. But after that tour, Virat didn’t give his wicket to the 39-year-old in the 2016 (home), 2018 (away) and 2021 (home) series.
But, Anderson dismissed Kohli twice in the 2021-22 tour. However, both teams will now play their next test series in 2024, and it is still doubtful whether both these legends will be there or not. Many consider the fifth test was the final episode of the Anderson vs Kohli rivalry. Former Indian pacer, Zaheer Khan, also shared his opinion on this. He said that it was one of the best battles between two greats of the game. Zaheer added,
“Maybe it’s the last time that you are getting to see this contest. Because Anderson is not playing matches regularly and sometime in future, he will have to say goodbye to this game. Maybe that point is very near. Maybe it’s the last time that you will get to see this contest.”
With the next series to be played in 2024, it will be a big question whether these two will be available for the next time or not. Browse the latest cricket betting odds on a wide range of markets and learn how betting odds work and give you the best cricket rates online.
