JAMES Anderson hailed a 'great summer' for him and the England team after he named Test player of the year at the Professional Cricketers' Association awards night.

The Burnley seamer, claiming the award for the second year in a row, went past Glenn McGrath's Test record for a pace bowler of 563 wickets with the final dismissal of the series win over India.

"It's been a great summer for me personally and the team," Anderson said.

"Beating the number one side in the world quite convincingly 4-1 was a real highlight for me and the rest of the lads. We're looking forward to even brighter things this winter."

Darwen's Alex Davies was named in the County Championship team of the summer after a good campaign with Lancashire, despite the Red Rose suffering relegation, while Dane Vilas was also named in the XI.

Jos Buttler won the PCA One-Day International player of the summer award, while Lancashire's Tom Bailey was named PCA County Championship player of the year.
