James Anderson has become the most capped English Test player in cricket history. The right-arm pace bowler received his 162nd Test cap in the ongoing match between England and New Zealand in Birmingham. Former England captain Sir Alastair Cook previously held this record, with 161 Test appearances to his name. James Anderson leveled Cook's record in the Lord's Test and has now surpassed the left-handed batsman.
