Yet another world record for Muralitharan

Last updated on: July 22, 2010 09:15 IST

Muttiah Muralitharan, with the wicket of Yuvraj Singh in the first innings, completed his 100 wickets against India. He is the first bowler in Test history to accomplish this feat.

Murali has already taken 112 and 104 wickets against England and South Africa respectively. So he now equals Australia's Shane Warne's record of aggregating 100 wickets against three particular countries.
