England pacer James Anderson reached a unique landmark when he clinched 100 Test wickets against India on Friday, June 1.

Anderson reached the landmark when he bagged the wicket of India opener Shubhman Gill on Day One of the rescheduled fifth Test at Birmingham.

The veteran speedster clinched 100 wickets at an average of 23.70.

Earlier, England named their playing XI for the rescheduled fifth Test

The Three Lions made one change to the side that won the third Test against New Zealand at Headingley, with Anderson returning to the side in place of Jamie Overton, despite Overton's vital 97 on Test debut at Headingley last week.

India are on the brink of securing their first Test series victory in England since 2007. However, they face an England side riding high on momentum under the new leadership of coach Brendon McCullum and captain Ben Stokes.

They swept New Zealand - the reigning ICC World Test Championship winners - 3-0 at home while India will only have played one warm-up match against Leicestershire heading into the Test.
