Harbhajan congratulates Murali
Harish Kotian in Kolkata | December 02, 2007 18:08 IST
"Congratulations to Muralitharan. Taking wickets is nothing new to him, you cannot call it a habit, it is more like a hunger for him and he just keeps on taking wickets," Harbhajan said.
Muralitharan will now hope to go past Warne when the third day resumes on Monday. His tally now stands at 708 wickets in his 116th Test, while leg-spinner Warne finished with the same number of wickets in 145 Tests.
"I must say hats off to him. He is a great bowler, great guy to be with," said Harbhajan.
India's veteran leg-spinner Anil Kumble [Images] is third on the wicket-taking list with 575 wickets.
