Srinagar, Aug 10: The seasoned pacer and English pace legend James Anderson has quashed all rumours of him retiring from cricket after a dismal outing against Pakistan in first Test at Old Trafford, Manchester .

In his last three Tests, England leading wicket taker has claimed only six wickets fuelling speculation that his 17-year test career could be drawing to a close.

“There’s no truth to that. It’s been a frustrating week personally, I felt out of rhythm and probably for the first time in 10 years I got emotional on the field and let that get to me,” Anderson told reporters on Monday.

“I think after one bad game, there are some whispers that go around but I don’t really think that’s fair. I’ve just got to work hard and hope I get the nod for the next game.”

Currently Anderson, has picked up 590 test wickets and is close to becoming first pacer to reach to 600 milestone.

“It’s not a huge incentive for me really. I want to be bowling well and contribute to winning,” he said. “If I get 600 wickets then great, if I don’t, I’m happy with what I’ve got.”

The second test will begin on Thursday at the Rose Bowl in Southampton.
