Kapil Dev scripted history as he picked up his 432nd Test wicket and moved past Richard Hadlee's record of maximum wickets in Test cricket.
He picked up Hashan Tillakaratne on 5, caught at short leg by Sanjay Manjrekar.
The feat was saluted with 432 balloons and a minute's standing ovation. Venkatpathy Raju and Rajesh Chauhan picked up 17 wickets between them and India won 9 consecutive Tests on trot.
"I was lucky to get 431 wickets," Kapil said after the game.
"So what if you think I am lucky. I have got so many wickets."
Hadlee too wished Dev for his feat by saying, “It’s a marvellous performance, although in some ways it’s sad. It’s a very special moment for Kapil Dev and for world cricket and we should enjoy the moment for Kapil as well. Probably in 10 years, someone will go beyond Kapil and the way that Shane Warne is going at the moment, he could be the first to get 500.”
The Test was also remembered for Atapattu's duck, which made it 5 ducks and a score 1 in the first six innings.
