As Dale Steyn scalped his 400th test victim recently, he joined the elite club of bowlers with 400 test wicket scalps. He was the 13th man to do so and only the second South African after Shaun Pollock to do so.  ES brings you the full list of bowlers with more than 400 test wicket scalps:

Muttiah Muralitharan

Murlitharan

Possibly one of the greatest spin bowlers that the cricketing world will ever see, he has an unbelievable 800 test wickets to his name, highest till date,  in a mere 133 matches/ 230 innings. With a best bowling figure of  9/51, the Sri Lankan legend has taken 67 5-wicket halls and 22 10-wicket halls, which is again more than any other bowler. It took him just 72 tests to reach the figure of 400 test wickets and in doing so, became the fastest man to achieve the feat.
