England bowler James Anderson says he is “happy” after announcing he will retire this summer, adding that “it feels like a good time”.

The 41-year-old, England’s leading wicket-taker, will retire following the first Test against West Indies at Lord’s in July.

The decision comes after talks with coach Brendon McCullum, who wants to build a bowling attack for the future.

Anderson is third on the all-time list of wicket-takers in Tests behind spinners Muttiah Muralitharan of Sri Lanka and Australia’s Shane Warne, having taken 700 wickets in 187 Tests.
