7 Of the finest spells by James Anderson
- Getting into the seven of the finest spells by one of the greatest swing bowlers of this generation
#2 England vs Sri Lanka, Hevolved 2016 ( 5/16 & 5/29)
With an impeccable record at Leeds, Anderson came back to the venue with an intent to give it back to Sri Lankans who had won a series in England back in 2014 after dismissing Anderson in a high drama match.
After England posted 298 on board, Anderson came to the fore as Sri Lanka were bundled for a mere 91. He dismissed Kaushal Silva, caught behind in his first spell and came back even impressively in his second spell to destroy Lankans with 5/16.
In second innings, Anderson changed gears and ran through Sri Lankan batting with 5/29 as Sri Lanka were humbled for 119 to lose the match by an innings and 88 runs.
