While Warne chose Brian Lara and Sachin Tendulkar besides Jacques Kallis, Kevin Pietersen, Graham Gooch and Ponting in the list of batsmen he had trouble bowling to in his Test career, Anderson opted to pick Ponting and Amla.
"I'd put (Ricky) Ponting right up there, especially in Australian conditions," Sport24 quoted Anderson as saying.
The 34-year-old said that Ponting used to make it very difficult for him to settle as a bowler because of his ability to hit from any length.
"Now, Hashim Amla is right up there (too) - he's very difficult to bowl at, especially in Test cricket."
Anderson, a 122-Test veteran, is England's all-time leading Test wicket-taker. He has taken 467 wickets at an average of 28.50.
