No he's not

Cricket: Murali back on top – 04 Dec 2007 – nzherald: Sports news – New Zealand and International Sport news and results

[quote]Spinner Muttiah Muralitharan broke Shane Warne’s all-time test wickets record on the third day of the first test to pave the way for Sri Lanka to edge into control against England on Tuesday.

Muralitharan broke the record in the morning as he claimed 6 for 55 in 35 overs and England were bowled out for 281, securing a valuable 93 first-innings lead in a low-scoring game.[/quote]

There is a slight problem with that summary. Muralitharan is a “chucker”. End of story. Not one single ball he has thrown down the pitch towards a batsman has ever been bowled, therefore he has never taken any wickets.
