Denesh Ramdin

All-rounder Botham took 383 wickets in 102 Tests between 1977 and 1992, as well as scoring 5,200 runs at an average of 33.54. Anderson bettered Botham's tally in two matches fewer as England pressed for victory at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in the first Test of the three-match series.
Having taken two wickets in the first innings, he had Marlon Samuels taken at gully midway through the morning session to move level with Botham.
But he had to wait until an hour of play remained before he located Denesh Ramdin's edge, removing the West Indies captain for 57 courtesy of a smart catch by Alastair Cook and ending a seventh-wicket stand of 105.
