    Most overs bowled by a fast bowler 5003.1 Courtney Walsh.
    Anderson 4473.2.. 529.5 overs to go.
    Can he get to 500 wickets? 33 wickets needed at 3.82 - 9 Tests. Unless he has a very good summer he might need to be on the Ashes trip.
    Since 2011 Broad has had 59 catches dropped off his bowling and Anderson 51 drops :emoticon-0101-sadsm

    I wonder which bowler has had the most dropped catches off his bowling?
    I suppose a better stat would be the most % of dropped catches against wickets taken??
