SRI LANKA, Colombo : A young Sri Lankan cricket fan read the sports pages of a newspaper which detail the breaking of the world record for the highest number of Test match wickets by Muttiah Muralitharan in Colombo, 09 May 2004. Muralitharan took the record breaking dismissal as Sri Lanka crushed Zimbabwe in the first Test match by an innings and 240 runs in Harare. Shane Warne subsequently surpassed Muralitharan in October 2004 to take the record when Muralitharan was out of action due to a shoulder injury, only to lose it again to Murali in 2007. © AFP/SENA VIDANAGAMA.
