Also, in an eleven year period from start of 98 to end of 08, Murali in 90 Tests took 631 wickets @ 19.94 at 7 wpm. Beat that! In that period he was performing at McGrath/Ambrose level despite being a spinner and being a lone warrior. Whichever way you look at it, how much ever you discount for record in SL and against B/Z, it's still beyond insane. He is one of those guys whose achievements get taken for granted, he's just expected to be taking 6-7 wickets a match.
