Sri Lankan spin bowler Mutiah Muralitharan has retired from Test cricket after an 8 wicket haul to win the match yesterday, and taske his total test wickets to a record breaking 800! Murali was a wizard with the cricket ball who was accused of throwing by Australian umpires – tests proved this accusation completely unfounded – the Aussie umpires had failed to take account that Murali was born with an impairment in his bowling arm – so a great and wily test bowler who introduced us to the bamboozling dosra ball, overcame poverty, disability, and discrimination, to be the greatest test wicket taker – Murali we salute you!
