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

Yes I would love this too!How old was Misbah when he retired-42?
For a while Anderson was bowling at cones when the rubbish ECB coaches tried to ruin his action-hooefully this will add a few more years and another 150 wickets!Stay healthy Jimmy  Jimmy!

Jimmy bowling at cones during breaks in play was an absolute low point for English cricket.

Love Jimmy. Absolute class. Have you all read this http://www.espncricinfo.com/story?id=24660458&glenn-mcgrath-dale-steyn-better-bowlers-james-anderson=

And for the fast bowlers, some great advice here:
One of McGrath's training methods that Anderson incorporated into his own preparations was bowling with an old ball, in order to equip himself to be able to succeed in unfavourable conditions.

"I heard him say once that he practised for when the ball didn't swing," Anderson said. "So if it did swing, it was a bonus. That philosophy has been a big part of my development. You so often see bowlers pick out a lovely new ball from the bag at nets and it looks great when it swings in the air and nips off the seam with batsmen playing and missing. What about when the ball is 60 overs old, the sun is blazing down, the pitch is flat and there's not a hint of movement? So, at practice, I often take an old ball that looks like it's been chewed by a dog and work on variations and aiming for the top of off stump. That's the quickest way to improve your skills."

Shame English cricket didnt learn from their mistake- did the same with Steven Finn, and are probably doing the same with Mason Crane.

Making your training harder than the actual match is sound advice for every sportsperson. Whether that's getting bowlers to bowl at you from 20 yards or bowlers running back to their mark and bowling to get them used to doing it when they're physically exhausted, it all helps.

On a tangential note, can bowlers stop bowling front foot no-balls in the nets please? Nothing winds me up more, you're just setting yourself up to mess it up in a match.
