Former England women’s cricketer Ish Guha on Wednesday (August 10) shared a picture of English pacers James Anderson, Stuart Broad, Chris Woakes and Mark Wood on her official Twitter handle.

Alongside the image, in which all four fast bowlers are seen smiling, Guha also shared a cheeky caption.

Tagging the cricketers, she asked:

“If they were a boyband - what would you call them?”

Guha's post received several humorous responses. One user wrote “Top of off”, another commented “Corridor of uncertainty'', while another response read “The backofalength boys”.

Guha was amazed by the number of responses to her post on the four English fast bowlers and also appreciated the creativity of the Twitterati.

Reacting to the replies, she commented:

“Some of the replies 🤣.”

“Would love to bowl at Virat again” - England pacer Anderson’s cheeky comment on retirement

Anderson, who is his country's all-time leading wicket-taker in Tests with 657 wickets in 172 matches, turned 40 last month. However, he is showing no signs of decline. The veteran pacer claimed his 32nd five-wicket haul in the rescheduled Test against India in Birmingham in July.

During an interaction with Sony Sports, the legend was asked about his retirement plans. He gave a tongue-in-cheek response and said:

"Well, I do not know. I would love to bowl at Virat again. So, maybe I will stick around for the next tour."

However, according to former India pacer Zaheer Khan, we have perhaps seen the last of the legendary Kohli-Anderson tussle in Test cricket.

In a discussion on Cricbuzz during the Test match, he said:

"Maybe it's the last time that you are getting to see this contest. Because Anderson is not playing matches regularly and sometime in future, he will have to say goodbye to this game.
"Maybe that point is very near. Maybe it's the last time that you will get to see this contest because after this series the next time India face England in England, there will be a long gap.”

Anderson is also England’s all-time leading wicket-taker in international cricket. He has 944 scalps across three formats.
