Muralitharan says his 800 Test-wicket record ‘not impossible’ to break

Muttiah Muralitharan

Muttiah Muralitharan’s world record of highest Test wickets (800) may look difficult to be beaten any time soon, but the bowler himself feels that it is “not impossible” to break.

“Look when Gibbs took 309 wickets, nobody had ever imagined but it broke. So many bowlers have grabbed those wickets… similarly my record can also be broken in this way”, he said exclusively over the telephone from Colombo.

For the record, Freddie Trueman was right once when on claiming his record for most Test wickets by Gibbs, had volunteered, “Any booger who passes that mark will be bloody tired.”
