Muttiah Muralitharan (Murali)
Born 17th April , 1972 Kandy Srilanka.
Muralitharan is a unique bowling talent.
His ability to twist the joints in his arm and wrist upon delivery is an amazing sight and a very effective tool, as the statistics prove.
He has been a member of the Sri Lankan cricket team since 1992 since making his Test debut against Australia at Colombo in the Australian cricket tour of Sri Lanka of 1992 and ODI against India at Colombo in 1993.He was born on 17th April, 1972 at Kandy in Sri Lanka. Also known as the "Smiling Assassin", he has continuously improved his game and gained popularity with each passing day. His strike rate of 6 wickets per match is also phenomenal. Since then, he has just kept on improving. His career statistics speak for themselves and deserve total credit. Despite all the controversies surrounding him over the years, he has stood bravely in the face of those controversies and showed the world that he is a man of character. From a loose-limbed, open-chested action, his chief weapons are the big-spinning offbreak and two versions of the top-spinner, one which goes straight on and the other, which has now been labelled his “doosra”, which spins in the opposite direction to his stock ball.
