Muttiah Muralitharan became One Day International cricket's highest wicket-taker when he induced Gautam Gambhir to edge to Kumar Sangakkara in the fourth match between Sri Lanka and India at Colombo. The off-spinner went into the match level with Pakistan's Wasim Akram on 502 and the wicket came shortly after Gambhir had reached 150 and his attempted cut took an edge with wicket-keeper Sangakkara claiming a smart catch.

Murali Equals The Record But India Take The Series
Published on :4th February 2009
Muttiah Muralitharan moved level with Wasim Akram by taking his 502nd One Day International wicket but he was unable to stop India running out 147-run victors in the third match at the R. Premadesa Stadium in Colombo. The win marked a record-equalling eighth success in a row for the away side and ensured they cannot lose the five-match series. Yuvraj Singh and Virender Sehwag both scored centuries to propel India to a score of 363 for five before Sri Lanka were bowled out for 216, Pragyan Ojha picking up four wickets as Sri Lanka's challenge collapsed under the lights.

India still have not got better of Mendis-Murali
Published on :2nd February 2009
Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni said Sunday his batsmen have done well by not giving wickets to Ajantha Mendis and Muttiah Muralitharan but they have still not managed to get the better of the spin twins in the ongoing one-day series against Sri Lanka. Muralitharan and Mendis, who have enjoyed a good success rate against India in the past, have so far come a cropper in the five-match series which the Indians lead 2-0.

Sehwag to play, Murali on verge of record
Published on :30th January 2009
India's 3-2 victory in August last year was their first-ever bilateral series win in Sri Lanka and their chances of making it two in a row will increase significantly if the result of Saturday's day-night contest goes their way. India gain a massive boost with the return of Virender Sehwag - who missed the first ODI due to a hip injury - and a win for them will leave the hosts needing three consecutive victories to prevent defeat; a Sri Lankan success will bring the series back on an even keel.

Published on :27th January 2009
Sri Lankan ace spinner Muttiah Muralitharan, who is already the world's leading taker of Test wickets, is poised to become the leading bowler in one-day internationals.

Muralitharan on brink of another world record
Published on :25th January 2009
Sri Lankan spin wizard Muttiah Muralitharan needs five more wickets to become the highest wicket-taker in one-day cricket history as Sri Lanka take on Pakistan in the third and deciding one-day match here Saturday. The wily off-spinner needs two more wickets to become only the second bowler to cross the 500-mark in limited overs internationals. Another three would help him overtake Pakistan's Wasim Akram's one-day tally of 502. The 36-year-old Muralitharan is already the world's top wicket-taker in Test cricket with 769 in 125 Tests.

Published on :25th January 2009
Spinner Muttiah Muralitharan took his 500th wicket in one-day internationals as Sri Lanka thrashed Pakistan by 234 runs to win their series 2-1 on Saturday. Pakistan, replying to Sri Lanka's 309 for five, were skittled out for just 75 in the third and final one-dayer with Muralitharan claiming two late wickets after pacemen Nuwan Kulasekara (three for 17) and Thilan Thushara (three for 33) had created havoc. It was Pakistan's lowest total against the Sri Lankans, their biggest loss to the visiting side and the second largest defeat in a one-day match between two test-playing nations.
