When it comes to longevity, very few come close to James Anderson in cricket. It was on December 15 2002 that he made his ODI debut. A few months later, he made his Test debut. He is still very much active in Tests for England. On that note, here is a strong playing XI of cricketers who were born after James Anderson made his international debut.
Openers: Haseebullah Khan (WK) and Vikramjit Singh
Haseebullah recently made his debut for Pakistan. He is an exciting prospect and will be interesting to see how he does. The same goes with Vikramjit Singh, who has been doing well for the Netherlands for a while now. He was also a part of the recent 2023 ODI World Cup.
Middle-Order: Dewald Brevis and Musheer Khan
Dewald Brevis will headline this batting unit of the strong playing XI of cricketers who were born after James Anderson made his international debut. While Dewald is seen as the next big thing in the game, Musheer also has the capability to go to the next level.
All-Rounders: Sanjay Krishnamurthi, Dunith Wellalage and Rehan Ahmed
Sanjay is a young all-rounder from the USA. He also played in the Major League Cricket recently. Dunith Wellalage and Rehan Ahmed are both established in their national teams. Both have a bright future ahead of them. Dunith is also seen as a future captaincy material.
Bowlers: Aryan Dutt, Matheesha Pathirana, Naseem Shah and Noor Ahmad
It is a solid pace attack for this strong playing XI of cricketers who were born after James Anderson made his international debut. Aryan Dutt and Noor form a potent spin attack for this side. Both played in the recent 2023 ODI World Cup. Naseem Shah is one of the best young talents in the game while Pathirana has already done well in various tournaments.
