Cricketer James Anderson has become England's highest Test wicket-taker, clocking up his 384th dismissal in his 100th match.

The seamer was mobbed by his team-mates, as his family celebrated in the crowd.

Anderson said: "Taking over from an English legend is a hugely proud moment for me.

"You pick up milestones along the way and it was a huge landmark for me," he said.

He takes the record from Sir Ian Botham, who told Sky Sports: "I've enjoyed watching him bowl; he richly deserves it."
