Anderson's most recent trip to Pakistan was in 2005 with the England team
England fast bowler James Anderson was greeted in Multan with a 17-year-old memory of him as the three lions are currently in Pakistan for a three-match Test series.
Anderson's most recent trip to Pakistan was in 2005 with the England team.
Anderson, who was 23 then, was a member of the English team's ODI squad and has now traveled back to Pakistan to participate in the Test series.
Following their victory in the first Test, England and the hosts arrived in Multan on Tuesday.
After a long absence, Anderson was warmly received in the City of Saints.
The pacer posted a photo of himself posing next to a welcome sign in a Multan hotel on his Instagram story. The banner read: "It's an honor to host you, James Anderson, after 17 years."
"Back in Multan," he captioned his picture.
Anderson was not a member of the Test squad for the 2005 series. He is, however, the main focus of England's bowling attack during the current tour.
In a press conference ahead of the first Test, he said: "I feel very fortunate that I'm still here, very fortunate to be able to be back in Pakistan after so long."
The second Test between the two teams will take place at the Multan Cricket Stadium from December 9–13.
