pricks who think Anderson is a bad bowler ought to go look up the stats ffs, second highest England wicket taker of all timeffs
Key word there being English....
If you look at the wicket takers around him, they are for the most part averaging about 5 runs better than him.
He bowls a lot more than others. Simple as that. He averages 37 overs a game which is closer to spinners than fast bowlers.
If you really want to look at the stats, you see he goes for more runs per wicket, more runs per over and takes longer to get his wickets than most.
63 bowlers taken more than 200 wickets.
52 of them have a better average.
49 of them go for less an over.
34 of them took less balls.
Bowling more than others doesnt make a great. A lot of those stats include spinners so if you cut out them and compare for games and overs bowled he wouldnt even be on the list.
