I feel it's more likely now that Cook has gone, the old guard is slowly stepping away and with Anderson being 36 I'd say he has at max 1.5 years left.

He has most wickets for any seamer in the world, his best mate will no longer be with him on tours etc and what else has he really to accomplish?

Personally I think his retirement will come after the end of the Ashes next year.

Hard to tell with Jimmy, he's at the age now where a bad injury would probably end it but on the other hand he plays the bare minimum of cricket outside tests these days and his performance has only got better over the past few years. Could easily just come down to how long he fancies going on for. Hopefully plenty longer but after the Ashes would seem an obvious point.

Yeah I can see that being the case, seems logical. Ultimately its up to his desire and body, if its not in 18 months then cant be much longer as a seamer on the cusp of 40 at international cricket doesnt happen. Personally cant see England replacing him for a long time because bowlers with the amount of skill he has arent knocking around.

Jimmy needs 56 to overtake Kumble.

There are a possible 12 tests before the end of the Ashes next summer (3 vs SL, 3 vs WI, 1 vs IRE, 5 vs AUS).

So that would mean if he was to retire at the end of the Ashes he would have to average 4.7 wickets each test (if he played all of them) - so it's doable

All the current teams in the world are only good in their home conditions...so how good or bad your season was really depends on where you played your cricket.

Funny thing is that only when India whitewash teams at home, people cry about the conditions and the pitches.

The scoreline reads 4-1 but the fact is that India fought well through out. Bad selection policy probably played the biggest role in the series defeat. But overall, there were quite a few positives that came out from the Eng series.

spot on this,     that's why its really impossible to tell the worlds best team. totally agree about this being a close series, it could easily of been 2-2.

England lose 0-4 in India and win 4-1 in England, you could say exactly the same about the Ashes series, we were well beaten away and comfortable winners at home.

It's interesting with Anderson that until recently he was talking about next year's Ashes as the time he was looking to head out of international cricket whereas more recently he has started talking about carrying on as long as he can.  It would seem that his enthusiasm for the game is stronger now then it ever has been.  Combined with the fact they the last 2 years have been the best of his career and that his workload is well managed, I wouldn't be surprised to see him play for a couple more years

The Ashes next year would be a natural point, were we to win them - but I think that is questionnable.  He may therefore keep going and see what comes next.

Jimmy's career average - 26.84. Jimmy's average in the past three years - 19.9! Not surprised he's feeling good about carrying on really ha.

Non-spinning bowlers older than Jimmy who've taken test 10fers:

40 SF Barnes (14-144) Eng v SA Durban 1913-14
37 HHH Johnson (10-96) WI v Eng Kingston 1947-48
37 CA Walsh (10-117) WI v Eng Lord's 2000
37 RJ Hadlee (10-88) NZ v Ind Bombay 1988-89
36 KR Miller (10-152) Aus v Eng Lord's 1956

Would love to see him get to the top of that list!

I'd like to see Jimmy become the Misbah ul Haq of fast bowlers .
