England star James Anderson believes July's clash against the West Indies at Lord's will be his final appearance in the five-day format, calling it the “right time” to end his Test career. Is.

The 41-year-old became the first seamer and third bowler in history to reach 700 Test wickets after spinners Shane Warne and Muttiah Muralitharan in his most recent outing against India in March.

But Anderson has decided to bid farewell to his Test career after talks with England head coach Brendon McCullum, who is looking to revamp his team's seam attack and move towards the future with an eye on the 2025-26 Ashes.

Setting the first Test against the West Indies as his farewell date, Anderson wrote on Instagram: “Hello everyone. Just a note to say that the first Test of the summer at Lord's will be my last Test.

“It's been an incredible 20 years representing my country, playing the game I've loved since childhood.

“I will miss going out to England very much. But I know it is time to step aside and let others achieve their dreams, as I did, because there is no greater feeling than that.”
