Muttiah Muralitharan

Canvey Island
Murali is playing his final test for Sri Lanka, and before start of play he need 8 wickets to reach 800 wickets in Test Cricket. He took a 5fer in India's first innings and has 1 of the 5 to fall so far in their second innings. I hope he gets there, and it is possible that his total may never be surpassed.

I remember Fred Trueman taking his 300th against the convicts in 1964, and many thought that total may never be reached again. Asked afterwards if it could be beaten Fred in his laconic "Yorkshire wit" responded "Aye, but he'll be bloody kanackered".

So good luck tomorrow Murali and bow out in style.
