    Championship Division Two title He bounced back with England too as they toured Pakistan and India that winter although he returned to home shores only to find out that he had picked up a stress fracture in his back ruling him out of virtually the entire 2006 summer But he was determined to prove his fitness ahead of a busy winter which included a Champions Trophy an Ashes series England lost 5 0 a one day tri series against Australia and New Zealand England won it and a World Cup Another period of international frustration ensued early in the summer of 2007 but he bounced back superbly to take the man of the Test series award as a star studded India toured It was also a series that helped start a period of success in a personal duel with the Little Master Sachin Tendulkar who he has now dismissed nine times in Test cricket Anderson enjoyed success in an away Test series against New Zealand in early 2008 England were coached by Peter Moores and he took 42 wickets in all forms of international cricket against the same opponents and South Africa during that summer He was subsequently awarded the aforementioned Wisden honour prior to the 2009 English summer and celebrated with a stunning ten wicket match haul as Lancashire got the Moores era off to a spectacular start against Sussex at Hove It was great preparation for an Ashes series in which Anderson took 12 wickets and featured in a stirring rear guard effort with the bat at Cardiff as the urn was regained thanks to a 2 1 win Five wickets in the Cape Town Test was the highlight of a winter drawn series with South Africa before he took 32 Test wickets during home victories over Bangladesh and Pakistan in the summer of 2010 That was followed by arguably his best series to date another Ashes campaign He finished as the leading wicket taker with 24 as England won 3 1 succeeding Down Under for the first time in 24 years And not content with that despite a disappointing third World Cup he terrorised the Indians with 21 wickets in the summer of 2011 as England became the best Test team in the world His Championship appearances for Lancashire came against Warwickshire at Edgbaston and Yorkshire at Liverpool and he picked up a winner s medal from Prince Philip at Buckingham Palace later in the year Anderson Lancashire s beneficiary in 2012 started the summer by being awarded the Freedom of Burnley He only played once for the Red Rose county in the Championship defeat against Nottinghamshire at Old Trafford in early May but managed to take five wickets in the second innings despite being laid low with a bug through the majority of the contest It prepared him for the summer s Test series against West Indies and South Africa in which he took a combined total of 18 wickets nine in each That was followed

  • Karl Brown Lancashire
