Video: Shane Warne becomes the first bowler to break the 600-Test wicket barrier

Shane Warne is arguably the best leg-spinner of all time in the cricketing world. He got his first taste of International Test cricket against India in 1991-92 at Sydney, but Old Trafford has been always known for the many of his iconic moments in Test cricket.

On this day, in 2015, Warne became the first bowler to take 600 Test wickets by scalping Marcus Trescothick caught behind on day one of the third Test at Old Trafford. It took him 126 Test matches to reach this remarkable feat. It was on the same ground he took the wicket of Mike Gatting, with his first delivery on his Ashes debut on June 4, 1993. The ball bamboozled Gatting by turning from way outside the leg and taking the off-bail. That ball has been hailed as the ‘ball of the century’.

Warne played till 2007 and took 708 Test wickets, which was later overhauled by Sri Lankan legendary off-spinner Muttiah Muralitharan. There are only three bowlers who have taken more than 600 wickets in the five-day format and all three are spinners: Muralitharan with 800 wickets and  Anil Kumble with 619 wickets being the others.
