    800!

    Murali WAG What a Champ.

    Salute the legend. Signing off in the best manner possible. Ultimate bowler of our times.

    Great way to retire. Probably only Sachin scoring his 100th ton in his last test for India could top it!

    Great, simply great.

    And I don't think this record will ever be broken. With the advent of T20s and a hectic cricket schedule I don't think a player will last the wear and tear anough to get to 800 test wickets again (or 100 internaational 100s if Tendulkar gets there). There was a debate in the latest cricinfo podcast which focussed on 'Are fast bowlers dying'. They said the same when Trueman got 300 or even when Walsh got 500, so you never know but like the Hobbs record this seems unreachable for me.

    WAG. To set a target of 8 in a test and to achieve it is simply outstanding.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Good way to sign off I reckon. Many great years of service to the country and he's won many a match for us. Legend.

    Only thing I can see is this actually makes up a little bit for such a dismal show from India in this test..

    Let's not forget that in addition to reaching 800 Murali reached the remarkable milestone of 6 wicket per test for his career. He is the only bowler with more than 200 wickets to achieve this.

    Great to see Murali bring up his 800th wicket, he deserved to get there after such a great career. Amazingly, thinking back, I haven't seen most of his career as he achieved most of what he did away from Australia. I still recall his 16 wickets vs England though and the bloke could turn it an absolute mile.

    Seems like a nice guy too, so I hope retirement treats him well when he eventually goes from all forms of the game.
