The Australian is fourth on the list with the likes of legendary Sri Lankan off-spinner Muthiah Muralitharan (800), leg-spin great Shane Warne (708) and former India captain Anil Kumble (619) preceding him.

"That's entirely up to him; if he stays on the park, then he can do that quite easily - and knock me off. And good luck to him," McGrath was quoted as saying by

"He's a quality bowler, there's no doubt about that. When he's firing and the ball's swinging, he's as tough (to face) as any bowler going around," McGrath said.

"He's played 115 Tests now, which for a fast bowler to play over 100 is exceptional. He's still bowling well, and he's still taking wickets."
