England fast bowler James Anderson’s 600-wicket journey began 17 years ago when he bowled Zimbabwean opener Mark Vermeulen at Lord’s on the second day of the first Test on May 23, 2003.


“I have been following Anderson’s career with interest and absolutely have no regrets being his first Test victim,” Vermeulen told the Daily Mirror yesterday.
Vermeulen has now moved to South Africa where he is involved in school cricket coaching.   


“It was a good ball which straightened down the slope at Lord’s hitting the top of middle and off stump,” he recalled.
“Obviously I was disappointed at that time but I don’t feel so bad now knowing that he has taken 600 
Test wickets.”
“This is an outstanding achievement by him to reach 600 Test wickets and to become the first fast bowler to achieve this is truly remarkable.”
