Murali captures 700th Test wicket
Third Test, Kandy, day four: Sri Lanka 500-4 bt Bangladesh 131 & 176 by an innings and 193 runs
Scorecard
 
Murali is the second most prolific bowler ever in Test cricket


Muttiah Muralitharan claimed his 700th Test wicket as Sri Lanka completed an innings and 193-run win over Bangladesh to seal a 3-0 Test series triumph.

The off-spinner (6-54) reached the mark with the final wicket, which took him to within eight victims of retired Australian leg-spinner Shane Warne.

Sri Lanka declared on their overnight 500-4 and the Tigers made a good start to reach lunch at 106-2 on day four.

But Muralitharan ran through them as they went from 123-2 to 176 all out.

The 35-year-old was mobbed by his team-mates and cheered wildly by the crowd in his home town Kandy after finishing with match figures of 12-82 to close in on his great friend and rival Warne.

Bangladesh, who were outclassed in the previous two games and on the first three days here, began the fourth morning hoping to regain some pride.

And Shahriar Nafees (64) got them off to a decent start by putting on 47 with Javed Omar (22) before the latter fended a short Lasith Malinga delivery to first slip.

Murali is a great bowler, but Shane Warne will always be better

Habibul Bashar's miserable run of form continued when he attempted a wild slog at Muralitharan and was comprehensively bowled for 15, making it a total of 66 runs in the series for the former skipper.

Muralitharan sparked the afternoon collapse when quicker deliveries saw Nafees edge to first slip and skipper Mohammad Ashraful trapped lbw.

Mushfiqur Rahim drove Sujeewa de Silva to point and Rajin Saleh was snapped up at second slip off the same bowler, while Tushar Imran flicked Malinga straight to mid-wicket.

The rest crumbled to Sri Lanka's finest ever bowler, with Mashrafe Mortaza holing out to long-on, Shahadat Hossain bowled trying to slog-sweep and Syed Rasel spooning a catch to mid-off.

Muralitharan needed only 12 Tests to move from 600 to 700 and could well break Warne's record in November when, ironically, Sri Lanka visit Australia for two Tests.
