Yuvraj also congratulated Anderson for his achievement and wrote, "Never thought I’d see in my lifetime a fast bowler take 600 Test wickets! It’s not just the quantity but the quality with which he has bowled - be it slow or fast wickets, bounce or no bounce, seam or no seam, for him conditions never mattered! Sir @jimmy9 you are the #GOAT."
