Let's welcome the SL spin king Muttiah Muralitharan!
The legend is here.. With us! Yes! Muttiah Muralitharan is going to be seen in the Red-n-Gold soon! Nick named Murali by the Cricket world, he is spin sensation from Sri Lanka.
So good is his bowling that, after he retired from International Cricket, Sri Lanka's performance has taken a set-back. And as presumed by the Cricket lovers, SL team misses him the most. Well, it is time to welcome the big man to the RCB gang..
In 2002, he was rated as the greatest Test match bowler by the Wisden Cricketers' Almanack. In Tests, he has taken 800 wickets. In ODIs, he has taken 532 wickets. The stats say it all.. He retired in style too! He took his 800th wicket from his final ball in his last over in the last match of Pragyan Ojha against India in July 2010. He also holds the world record of taking 5 or more wickets in an innings: 67 times.
By the way, he is the only player to take 10 wickets/match against every Test playing nation. And he also has a record of most ducks in international Cricket: 59 total in Test + ODI + T20!
With the deadly combination of Daniel Vettori and Muttiah Muralitharan and Syed Mohammed, RCB's spin attack can be called as "the strongest" among all IPL teams. Do you agree?
He, along with the fab members of the Fan Advisory Board, plot new schemes to engage with fans and trouble shoot their problems.
