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.

There is actually more than one cricketer to have received this unfortunate recognition, but perhaps the most renowned cricketer for this achievement would be Chris Martin of New Zealand, who has bowled impressively throughout his career to take 199 test wickets (as of 27th July 2011), but has batted rather modestly (109 runs at an average of 2.53). However, Indian spinner Bhagwat Chandrasekhar accompanies Martin in this exclusive group of cricketers. He took 242 wickets while scoring 167 runs throughout a pretty successful career.There are a few other cricketers who have taken more wickets more than runs scored, however they have not played as many matches as Martin and Chandrasekhar (61 and 58 respectively). See the related links for some useful information.
England's Jim Laker was the first cricketer to take all ten wickets in an innings, in a Test match against Australia at Old Trafford in 1956. Laker finished with the amazing figures of 10/53 in the second innings, outdoing his incredible 9/37 in the first innings. No other bowler has taken more than 17 wickets in a first-class match or a Test match.
