Harbhajan Singh has claimed 325 wickets in test match cricket. In the ongoing test match between India and New Zealand in Wellington, Harbhajan Singh dismissed Ross Taylor and Franklin in the first innings. With those two wickets, Harbhajan Singh had become the 20th bowler in test match history to claim 325 wickets or more. He is only the third Indian to reach thus far, Anil Kumble and Kapil Dev were the other two.

Sri Lankan Muttiah Muralitharan leads the list of bowlers with most wickets in test match cricket, followed by retired spinners Shane Warne and Anil Kumble. The top five list is as follows:

1. Muttiah Muralitharan (Sri Lanka) - 770 wickets
2. Shane Warne (Australia) - 708 wickets
3. Anil Kumble (India) - 619 wickets
4. Glenn McGrath (Australia) - 563 wickets
5. Courtney Walsh (West Indies) - 519 wickets

We hope to see Harbhajan Singh up there in the top one day. All the best Bhajji, keep going!
