James Anderson is arguably the finest proponent of swing bowling the world has ever seen. Back in 2008, when current England coach Brendon McCullum used to open the innings for New Zealand, the young Anderson produced one of his greatest spells. His outswingers left the batters gasping for breath as stumps flew all over. Even McCullum, not someone known for his technical proficiency, played around one and had his furniture rearranged. Anderson bagged a scintillating seven-for in what was an emphatic precursor for things to come.
