Muralitharan reaches 800

Muttiah Muralitharan took his 800th Test wicket on the last day of first Test against India in Galle.

Muralitharan started the Test needing eight wickets to reach 800 and he took five in the first innings.

With India forced to follow on, the leading marksman took another three in the second innings to reach the 800 milestone.

He now leads Shane Warne on 708 and Anil Kumble on 619.

Its interesting to see that no currently active player has more than 400 Test wickets.

I think this is one of those records that will take a very long to break if its ever broken.
