James Anderson takes his 300th Test wicket for his country, becoming the fourth bowler to do so in an England shirt.

James Anderson has reached a new record by taking his 300th Test wicket for England during the first Test of their two-match series against New Zealand.

The 30-year-old has become the fourth England player to achieve the feat after dismissing Peter Fulton courtesy of a catch at second slip by Graeme Swann at Lord's during the Black Caps' first innings.

New Zealand came into bat after England were all out on 232 following a difficult morning session where they lost four wickets and only racked up 49 runs.

The visitors are currently 15-2 at Lord's.
