Anil Kumble (9 March 2006) was not far behind, and completes the five bowlers in the history of cricket to have taken 500 or more Test Wickets.
anil kumble and kapil dev
Sreenath Arvind with 21 wickets
I think Javagal srinath 44 wickets in 34 matches.
1 Richard Hadlee (431 test wickets)
This is not a very smart question as many cricketers havent got 500 test wickets, not just one "player". However to name one Ricky Ponting.
Kapil Dev is most famous for being the captain of the Indian cricket team that won the 1983 Cricket World Cup. He is one of the few players in cricket history to have taken more than 400 wickets and more than 5000 runs in Test cricket.
502 wickets! in just 356 matches! He is the best bowler there ever was in the history of cricket!and remember he has a billion more in total in tests and t20's
Wasim Akram is the leading Pakistani wicket taker in One Day Internationals, with 502 wickets to his name. He is second only in the world to the now retired Muttiah Muralitharan (who is 17 ahead on 519). The third most ODI wickets for a bowler also belongs to a Pakistani bowler, Waqar Younis, with 416. Chaminda Vaas (400 wickets exactly) completes the quartet of bowlers with 400 or more wickets.
