English pacer James Anderson will soon be going down in the history as he is on the verge to become the highest wicket taking fast bowler in Test history. He has bagged 561 wickets, just 2 behind Glenn McGrath's 563 Test scalps.

Anderson is having a satisfying Test series against India. He is the highest wicket taker with 21 wickets in five matches. However, he has failed to dismiss the Indian skipper Virat Kohli even once in this series. He has managed to find the edge but wasn't lucky enough to get assistance from his slip fielders, who dropped Kohli.

Recently, in a rapid-fire round interview with Sony Six, the Lancashire pacer named Virat as his favorite batsman to bowl. He loves the battle, so does we. When two of the best in their specialty clash, no doubt, it is intense and an epic battle.

Virat quashed the demons of 2014 tour to England when he was troubled by James Anderson. The 29-year-old India batsman is the highest run-scorer in this series with 593 runs in nine innings at an average of 65.88.
