Great to see Murali getting 800 wickets and he deserved it!

It was funny to see crowd cheering when chances created by other bowlers didn't result in wickets.

GB... we did the same thing when kumble was onto taking 10 wickets in an innings...

fans are fans are fans... irrespective of cast... creed... geography... :)

Dear Muttiah muralitharan sir, you have my congratulations.

straight point said...

but tell me... why being anonymous even when congratulating...?

Som said...

straight point said...

Cricket Schedule said...

what murali did, no one might be able to do.

Whether it was doosra or something else, he was one who lead the bowler to live in cricket.

straight point said...

yes CS... the feat might never be equaled but i don't think its good for cricket... the records are meant to be broken who knows...

Cricket Schedule said...

no pankaj,

although records are meant to be broken, change in lifestyle in cricket has made it obsolete for new generation to break the record.

Some records can never be broken like having avg. of 99.96 of bradman.

Moreover, we are seeing test cricket dying that implies we might not be able to see breaking anything such record in future.

straight point said...

then we will calibrate our measurement scales of 'greats'...

today movie is declared hit even in first weeks earlier they had to run for at least 15-20 weeks to be declared a hit... lame comparison... but you get the point... :)

I too doubt if anybody will reach there unless the character of Test cricket changes.

straight point said...

sb... then let the character of test cricket change drastically... :)
