Jimmy Anderson

Really good piece on Jimmy Anderson here:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/tomfordyce/2012/05/how_jimmy_anderson_became_engl.html

I know a lot of poeple talk about the fact Jimmy isn't good enough to be considered an England great, and that his career stats aren't very impressive, but I din't realise how good his figures are since 2010 - better than Steyn!

And too think where he might be had he been nurtured properly and his action hadn't been tinkered with!

not convinced he would be that much further on to be honest!

I'm not to sure, if he had been able to carry on the way he started and had Fletcher been more eager to put his arm around his shoulder then I think he would have around 50 more wickets.  As for Bob Willis criticing someones action, well.....!
