Highest Wickets takers in One day international cricket

With SriLanka winning the 3 ODI against Pakistan and clinching the series one another milestone was achieved by Muthiah Muralitharan yes in this match Murali claimed 2 wickets by and become the second bowler in the history on one day cricket to claim 500 dismissals. Only Pakistan's Wasim Akram has got 500 + wickets. Akram has 502 wickets in his list and is not playing International cricket now thus Murlitharan will soon break his record in a match or two.

Video of Murali taking his 500th wicket.



Also Murali is the highest wicket taker in test matches, in 125 test he played, Murali has 769 wickets at an average of 6 wickets per test. Now players closer to his record like Shane Warne, Anil Kumble and Glenn McGrath, has retired already. Only player close to his record and playing cricket currently is Chaminda Vaas that to in the twilight of his career. It seems it will take a long long way to break his records.

In recent interview Murali told the reporters, "If I have an ambition it is to play until the next World Cup. After that I will call it quits."

Murali is the only crickter to have 500 wickets in both form of cricket.
