England fans share the frustration as Jimmy Anderson gropes for magic 500 | Andy Bull

Attempt to make Test wicket-taking history held up by West Indies lower-order batsman impervious to an English master at work

Jimmy Anderson recently explained that fate is what keeps him sane, a crutch that helps him cope with the vagaries of the game. “You have to try to think that way,” he said, “because cricket is a game where you can bowl out of your skin and get no wickets, and you can bowl a pile of rubbish and get five-for.”

At 35, he has grown to be pretty phlegmatic about it all but even his faith in the kismet of cricket must have been tested on Thursday afternoon, which he, and everyone else at Lord’s, spent waiting for a wicket which never came. At stumps, Anderson had 499 Test wickets. He needs one more to become the first Englishman to take 500.

Jimmy Anderson puts focus on England series win rather than 500th wicket

Victory in the final Test against West Indies is priority for strike bowler, who says he is ‘not fussed’ about whether he reaches a personal landmark at Lord’s

When Glenn McGrath brought up his 500th Test wicket at Lord’s in 2005 by teasing an edge to third slip off Marcus Trescothick, the great Australian fast bowler had a pair of gold-stitched bowling boots run on to the field by the 12th man to mark the occasion.

Jimmy Anderson, sitting three away from becoming just the third seamer to the milestone after McGrath and Courtney Walsh, has no such plans for the third Investec Test against West Indies, instead preferring to focus on the series decider.

‘I couldn’t bowl badly,’ says Anderson after putting England in sight of victory

• ‘I just want that last wicket, I don’t care who gets it,’ says Anderson
• Says it felt strange hearing his name bowling from James Anderson End

Jimmy Anderson said he felt additional pressure when he took the new ball at the end that now carries his name but was delighted to end the day with four victims to leave him one away from a maiden Test five-wicket haul on his home ground. The 35-year-old said he could not care less who closes out the South Africa innings as England continue on their path towards a 3-1 series win.

Jimmy Anderson frustrated by England’s batting display against South Africa

• Bowler’s five-wicket haul undone by team’s performance with bat
• ‘We’ll try and make sure it doesn’t happen again’

Jimmy Anderson had little time to savour a seventh five-wicket haul at his happy hunting ground of Trent Bridge, describing England’s chastening second day against South Africa as one they must learn from quickly if they are to become harder to beat.

Solidity was Joe Root’s stated aim on assuming the captaincy in February. But two Tests into his tenure England have demonstrated their inconsistency once more, going from a romping four-day victory at Lord’s to a desperate situation in Nottingham, where South Africa will resume their second inningson Sunday 205 runs ahead for the loss of one wicket.

England collapse as Faf du Plessis pulls strings for South Africa

• Second Test, day 2: South Africa 339 & 75-1; England 205
• Joe Root scores 78 before innings falls apart

This Test is racing along like a runaway train and Faf du Plessis is in the driving seat. The South Africa captain, a tough, phlegmatic man, had to endure his team losing their last four wickets inside the first 40 minutes and then witness England’s batsmen jauntily head for lunch on 85 for two, despite the loss of both openers with only three runs on the board. Yet by the end of another extraordinary, entertaining day of Test cricket Du Plessis’ side led by 205 runs with nine wickets in hand. After two days South Africa hold all the best cards.

Du Plessis handled his attack deftly during England’s remarkably brief innings. At one point Joe Root was batting so sublimely that South Africa’s total of 335 seemed inadequate but once the England captain departed after striking a majestic 78 from 76 balls the innings imploded with Du Plessis pulling the metaphorical strings as cleverly as Messrs Fluck and Law a couple of decades ago.
