James Anderson looks back on his England Test debut

James Anderson looks back on his England Test debut

Lancashire bowler James Anderson has revealed what it was like when he made his England Test debut.

The thirty five year-old made his England debut in 2003 against Zimbabwe where he went on to take five wickets.

"It was a really special feeling. It was similar to my Lancashire debut in that since I was growing up as a kid, that's all I wanted to do. I'd had a good winter in one-day cricket with England  and then managed to get a call-up to the Test squad in the summer."

He has also revealed the most memorable games he played for the Three Lions. Find out what he said in the video below.
