Anderson tops Test bowling rankings

England fast bowler James Anderson is the new No.1 ranked Test bowler in the latest update of the International Cricket Council's rankings.

Anderson's 500th Test wicket and his career-best figures of seven for 42 against the West Indies helped the pacer leapfrog Jadeja into top spot with a 12-point lead.

A nine-wicket win inside three days at the "home of cricket" meant England had won both of Root's first two series as captain following a preceding 3-1 home triumph over South Africa.

Anderson, who was the top-ranked bowler in August a year ago, reclaimed the top spot to become the oldest bowler to do so since Australian legend Glenn McGrath (January 2006) and Sri Lankan legend Muttiah Muralidaran (July 2009).

Anderson became the first England bowler to the landmark and just the sixth in history when, having started the West Indies' second innings with 499 Test wickets behind him, he clean bowled opener Kraigg Brathwaite.

Shai Hope, whose twin hundreds were the backbone of West Indies' series-levelling win at Headingley, top-scored in this innings with 62. "I'm more experienced", he pointed out.

He crushed West Indies with his 243 at Edgbaston.

West Indies pace bowler Kemar Roach admitted that he was concerned his worldwide career was all but over when he injured his shoulder nearly four years ago.

West Indies needed everything to go their way in the field if they were to record a remarkable win yet the very first ball of England's chase, from Shannon Gabriel, went for four byes.

Cook's exit, lbw for 17 to leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo's first ball of the innings, denied England a 10-wicket success.

It all made little difference when Blackwood was dismissed for five, caught behind off Anderson, bowling from the Nursery End after being warned for running on the pitch at the Pavilion End on Friday.
