The 'anti' in 'anti-Markovnikov’s  refers to the fact the reaction does not follow Markovnikov's rule, instead of being a reference to anti addition stereochemistry.

There are 2 stereocenters present in the product obtained from the above reaction.
hence there are 4 stereisomers are formed by the product,
