James Anderson becomes England's leading ODI wicket-taker
James Anderson broke Darren Gough's record to become England's leading wicket-taker in one-day internationals.
Anderson, level on 234 wickets with Gough before the Champions Trophy match against Australia, took the wicket of Mitchell Marsh to move past Gough
The Lancashire seamer's record-breaking wicket came in the first ball of his seventh over at Edgbaston.
Six others have taken 100 ODIs wickets or more for England, but only Anderson and Gough have broken the 200 barrier.
Sri Lanka spinner Muttiah Muralitharan holds the world record with 534 wickets from 350 matches, while Pakistan pace bowler Wasim Akram took 502 from 356.
Anderson, who took two more Australian wickets after reaching his landmark, is 25th in the all-time world list but has only played 170 internationals.
The 30-year-old became only the fourth England player to take 300 Test wickets when he dismissed New Zealand opener Peter Fulton during the first Test at Lord's in May.
If he is to become England's most successful Test bowler of all time, he will have to overhaul Sir Ian Botham's 383, with Fred Trueman's 307 and Bob Willis's 325 his next targets.
In February of this year, Anderson claimed his 529th scalp in all formats to pass Botham's 528 and become England's leading international wicket-taker.
"He's right up there with the best that England have had and he's right up there with the best in the world," said former England captain Michael Vaughan last month.
