Australia, Lanka to vie for Warne-Murali trophy

In a move to honour two of the greatest spinners of modern era, Sri Lanka [Images] and Australia are all set to fight for the Warne-Murali trophy when they lock horns in a two-Test cricket series starting next week.

With 700 Test scalps under his belt, Muralitharan is now nine wickets shy of surpassing Warne (708) as the highest wicket taker in the longer version of the game, and the Lankan offie would be hoping to achieve the milestone at the leggie's home turf.
