England pacer James Anderson is a legend in the lengthiest format of the game, i.e, Test Cricket. Despite being over 39 years old, the Englishman can still easily discombobulate even the best batsmen in the world, and seems to have no plans of retiring anytime soon.
However, former English fast bowler Steve Harmison has recently made a big revelation about the future of his former Teammate James Anderson. According to Harmison, the 39-year old will announce his retirement after the ongoing test series between England and India comes to an end.

This implies that according to Harmison, Anderson might not play the 2021 Ashes which is already under a cloud of confusion due to the strict COVID norms of Australia. The series might even be called off completely and Harmison thus thinks that it is the perfect opportunity for James Anderson to cut ties with the England test team.
Harmison said, “I’ve got a funny feeling, I don’t know what it is, but I really have got a funny feeling that Jimmy Anderson will retire at the end of Old Trafford.”

“I don’t think the Ashes will either go ahead or go ahead in such a way and I think Jimmy might just look at this and go ‘you know what, if I go to The Oval and bowl well and, then I’ve got Old Trafford at the end, my illustrious career couldn’t get any better than to finish by knocking Virat Kohli over from the end I bowl at, which is named after me, and there’s potentially no Ashes in six months.
“‘Why would I want to continue playing for another year and finish at The Oval next summer when it peters out. Do I go out on a high, the way I’ve performed this summer?’
“If I was Jimmy Anderson, I’d be [thinking] ‘I don’t think this can go any better.’”
