Default What they said about Murali

"He was a fantastic sportsman and supported all his team-mates on the field and I think that's something all senior players should take as a piece of advice from him, to be behind your team-mates 100%."
Aravinda de Silva, salutes his team-mate who was with him through thick and thin

"I admired him from a distance and when we played against each other we always tried to outdo each other. It was more about Australia and Sri Lanka, but it was good fun, the little battle within the big battle."
Shane Warne remembers his rivalry with Murali

"I don't want to get into comparison but I would prefer Warne. Murali is more accurate and has more variations so tougher to face."
Sourav Ganguly thinks Murali was tougher to face than Warne

"I am never going to go around looking for another Murali. Because you are never going to find any."
You can't replicate the man, says Kumar Sangakkara

"Glad I don't need to face him in Test cricket again."
Graeme Smith feels relief at the retirement

"What an incredible achievement. But it was one that is so deserved because he loves the game, has worked so hard and is such a great lad. It is not so much fun standing at the other end, though, when from 22 yards he's laughing at you, which is a bit off-putting."
Andrew Flintoff remembers playing with Murali for Lancashire

"There was no better way to finish than on that high note. You cannot ask for anything else. It was an honour to play along with him."
Anil Kumble salutes his fellow spinner

"I haven't changed my view in 15 years - he doesn't deserve the record."
Ross Emerson, who called Murali for chucking in 1999, maintains his stand

"There is no doubt Murali will be missed by the Sri Lankan team, not just for his wicket-taking ability, but for the pressure he applied and the number of overs he was able to bowl on each day."
Former Australia captain Mark Taylor on what Murali meant for Sri Lanka

"Murali used this delivery as a great wicket-taking weapon and I felt proud watching him do this."
Saqlain Mushtaq, the inventor of the doosra, compliments the man who made it his own

"To Benjamin Franklin's assertion that death and taxes are the only certainties can now be added the eternal nature of Murali's 800." To the Guardian's Mike Selvey, among others, Murali's record is unbreakable

"Murali is something phenomenal. I don't think anyone will even come close to taking 800 wickets."
Wasim Akram pays his tribute

"He is a God's gift. In my opinion no one will be able to match this feat in the horizon. He has performed on all types of wickets."
As does former India spinner Erapalli Prasanna

"I am afraid that Murali may have short-changed himself by deciding to give up Test cricket. He should have given himself a couple of years more and targeted 1000 Test wickets."
Former Sri Lanka captain Arjuna Ranatunga feels Murali called it quits too soon

"Were another Murali - and the beaches and streets of Sri Lanka are still full of youngsters who throw rather than bowl the ball - to emerge now, he would be headed off at the pass, 15 degrees of flexion or not. Murali graced Test cricket but Test cricket for many confused reasons will be relieved that he has departed."
In the Independent, Stephen Brenkley writes that with his his questionable action, Murali might not be missed in Tests

"I can honestly say that I was never able to pick Murali. Shane Warne, yes, but not Murali."
Nasser Hussain, the former England captain, on how he struggled against the Sri Lankan spinner

"He has borne the responsibility of representation with lightness, humour, and simplicity, remaining a conciliatory presence in an often strife-torn nation."
An editorial in the Hindu looks at Murali's achievements beyond the cricket field

"I may not agree with Murali's action or may have called all Murali wickets as run-outs, but I have highest respect for him as a human being, a kindhearted man."
Bishan Bedi, the former India spinner and a long-time critic of Murali's action, can't find any fault in the man himself

"He brought to the craft a new way of doing things, converting a finger-spinning exercise into a wrist-spinning one. He remains the symbol of a resurgent Sri Lanka, a talented side from its pre-Test days but one that needed a touch of iron to perform consistently."
Writer Suresh Menon on how Murali transformed offspin

Ross Emerson the first umpire to call Murali a chucker.

You all have opinions, but no one cares. If anyone gave a hoot about your opinions you wouldn't be on this message board commenting.

Anyone calling him a chucker just because he looks as if he chucks should stop taking medicine next time you get sick. Because he has been cleared by the same scientific advancements that synthesize drugs. So instead of going to the doctor to get help from science next time you get sick, go pray it away. See how that works out for you.

Muralitharan is a living legend in world cricket. He is to me like a Shaman Priest whose spirit will live forever to guide the future spinners of the world.

Buddhika bhai, I apologize for all these bros saying some mild negetive stuffs about Muralitharan. Please don't take it to heart and do not hurt about it, it's over, look up, out the window and you shall see that Murali is one of the brightest of stars in the eastern sky (and the man is still alive, Alhamdulillah! Allah bless this legend).

Muralitharan - Respect and honor!


P.S. Hell with Ross Emerson! Where is he now? In a waste drain somewhere?

Murali has a very unique action and he is not a chucker.

There will be no second Murali and nobody can match his achievement.

Those who want to brand him chucker and discredit his achievment have a poor understanding of sports science and ICC regulation.

He had the variation, accuracy and cricket brain to be successful.

ICC mandated biomechanics tests of Murali's action are all on youtube. watch those and convince yourself that he didn't chuck.

i once tried to bowl in murali's action ..... angular runup, lots of twist of wrist and elbow involved to try to spin the ball. and i got a lotof spin. its was not that hard for me to maintain a line and length but after day or two i figured out i am feeling pain in my wrist and elbow. so i got back to my pace bowling.

it really takes a lot effort from ur wrist and elbow. the way murali have continued doing this for all this year is exceptional.

I'm sorry if I sounded mad but I'm not. I'm used hearing all these and I don't take anything personally, cause frankly I'm not murali.

But I just hate when people become so hypocritical. Judging by their naked eye, without actually knowing anything about it. Murali's gone though all the tests, and bowled with an arm cast and former cricketers like Ian Chappell, Michael Slater, Dean Jones, Tony Greig seem to have no problem with it but these keyboard experts do.

I would like to see someone being allowed to chuck the ball as much as he can see if he can get to 800.

When someone talked about Murali/ Shoaib and his medical condition I would just ask do you allow a driving license to a blind person?

This analogy has no correlation what so ever at all. It's not a medical condition. Blind person is disable to begin with but Murali and Akthar are not. What Murali has is he can't straighten his elbow like most of us can. Bowling with the maximum position he can straighten his arm to looks as if he's throwing the ball, when in fact he is not, and it's been cleared by many biomechanical tests conducted in the past. Add to that his wrist work, it's a complete illusion for your eyes.

You wouldn't asking the question if you've actually watched the video of him bowling with the arm cast.

I do not really want to go into argument here. Everybody can carry their personal opinion on someone like Murali. Few of you are delighted to know that there is actually a hand of god that exists and helped Maradona to win the WC, to many others he is a cheat. Now my opinion as a spectator has no value, but if it is an umpire or ICC then it does carry career changing twist. Lucky Murali was not from Pak, then you would find the steam-roll that would have gone through for such controversial action.

Personally in a 3-D tv world you do not really rely on cameras much, do you?
