Muttiah Muralitharan became the first bowler in the history of Test cricket to get to 800 Test wickets when he took the final Indian wicket of Pragyan Ojha in the first Test between India and Sri Lanka at Galle.
The delirious celebrations were understandable given that Murali was not only retiring but also, retiring way ahead of the rest, Australia’s leg spinner, Shane Warne, distant on 708 Test wickets.
The Picture Gallery will depict that moment that will go down in history.
