Best Answer

The first four bowlers to take more than 500 wickets in Test Cricket were, chronologically, Courtney Walsh (17 March 2001), Shane Warne (8th March 2004), Muttiah Muralitharan (16 March 2004), and Glenn McGrath (July 21 2005). 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.
