Murali, the great Sri Lankan bowler, has retired from the game.
On the last day of his last test match, Sri Lankan bowler Muttiah Muralitharan picked up his 800th test wicket, an unprecedented feat.
Of course, he's been so far ahead of the field for so long that unprecedented doesn't mean much, but it's a nice round number to end the brilliant career of one of the most fun players to watch in cricket, whether he was batting or bowling.
True. Statistically, he was by far the most destructive bowler of his era. Unfortunately, he played the game when the Australians showcased a better team. So, he leaves with one World Cup trophy instead of two.
