Leading Wicket Takers in Test Cricket | Test Cricket Records

Leading Wicket Takers in Test Cricket
Sri Lankan spin wizard Muralitharan is the leading wicket taker in history of Test Cricket; he got 800 Test wickets in 133 Test Matches. Australian legend leg-spinner Shame Warne is the second leading wicket taker in Test Cricket with 708 wickets in 145 Test Matches. Indian leg-spinner Anil Kumble is the third highest wicket taker in Test Match Cricket with 619 wickets in 132 matches.
It is interesting to note that all the top 20 wicket takers in Test Matches are retired and Only Dale Steyn of South Africa is playing Cricket who is at number 21 in this list with 327 wickets, which means there is no chance in future that some one can break the record of Muralitharan.
