The England legend has claimed his 1,000th First Class wicket, as he saw off Kent's Heino Kuhn for Lancashire in the County Championship.

Kuhn was caught behind - Anderson's fifth victim, with his first four all caught in the slips, with his figures at that stage 5-3 off seven overs!

Anderson made his first-class debut in 2002, has now taken five or more wickets in a First Class innings on 51 occasions.

The "Burnley Express" is England's most capped Test player, claiming the most Test wickets for his country - indeed he is the only fast bowler in history to have 600 or more Test wickets to his name, and is the fourth highest wicket-taker overall.
