Yet another world record for Muralitharan

Sri Lankan spin legend Muttiah Muralitharan today surpassed Australia's Shane Warne in creating a new world record by bowling the most number of maiden overs in Test cricket.

Muralitharan, playing in his 128th Test currently happening against the New Zealand, overtook Warne's record by bowling his 1752nd maiden over at the Galle Stadium. Shane Warne has bowled 1751 maiden overs in his 145-Test career.

Muralitharan set up the record when he bowled the 79-th over of the first innings during the first Test for a maiden.

It was the 27th over of Murali and the batsman on the crease against whom the deliveries were bolwed was Jacob Oram.

Muralitharan is the top wicket-taker in both Tests and in ODIs. He took the wicket of Gautham Gambhir in February this year in Colombo, to surpass Wasim Akram's ODI record of 502 wickets.

The 37-year-old Muralitharan became the highest wicket-taker in Test cricket when he overtake the previous record-holder Shane Warne in December 2007.
