Q.

Muralidharan ended his test career with 800 wickets with Australian Shane Warne a distant second with 708 wickets. Looks like this record will remain in tact for a long time as no one is in sight right now to surpass it. Your views?

Yes , This Record will Remain Long and Very Long , Because the Following Datas telling You Why ?

Only 5 bowlers had taken 500 + Wickets in Test match , They were Murali (800) , Shane warn (708 ) , Kumple (619) , Mcgrath (563) ,and Walsh (519), All are Retired From Test Cricket.

In the Top wicket list , Harbajan Singh from India is coming 18th Position Who has taken 355 wickets so far , Remember its not coming near to half of Muraleedharans wicket , and Harbhajan achieved these wicket by his 12 Years Career and 84 Matches . and He is at 30 (age) Now , Its very hard for him to be No 1

So Muralis Record will Remain there Years and Years

Yes no doubt Murlidharan's record is here 2 stay 4 sum time. But 2 me Shane Warne is the best spinner of this generation and I will put him one of the greatest 2 hav played cricket. He is such a class. The bowl wid which he bolwed the English captain(frget his name) is still considered as ball of the century. No doubt Murlidharan commands much more respect off field as he is family man.

We said the same thing when Richard Hadlee and then Kapil Paaji took 400 wickets. Nobody thought that Warne or Murali would surpass that record, Wait and see, some bowler will surely cross 800 also.
