Muttiah Muralitharan is the highest wicket-taker in the five-day format. He has now picked 800 wickets in 133 Tests at an average of 22.74 and is the only man to reach the 800 wickets mark.

Although Muralitharan had struggled against India in the past picking up only 97 wickets in 21 matches, he came back well in his last Test to pick up 8 wickets in the match.

In April 2004, Murali was instructed by the ICC to stop bowling his Doosra, after he was reported by Chris Broad. But that did not deter the champion at all. Within a month he surpassed Courtney Walsh's record of 520 Test wicket

After completing 600 wickets, Murali played just 12 more Tests to count his 700th Test victim in 2007. Same year, he dethroned leg-spin legend Shane Warne to become the highest wicket-taker of all times with 709 wickets.
