The truth about Murali’s absence
By EFT Sports correspondent reporting from Malabe
It was announced by the Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) that Murali has been ruled out of the ongoing limited overs series in India due to an injury, however EFT Sports correspondent can reveal that the real reason for Murali’s absence is that he wants to spend more time with his family in Chennai than play for the country. Murali voluntarily pulled out of the series citing personal reasons, however SLC keen to keep this news out of the media eye have duped the cricketing public into believing that Murali is out due to injury. Murali’s commitment to Sri Lankan cricket is and was never questionable, however it is an open secret that the “seniors” have fallen out with Sanga over his dubious captaincy style, rarely do the public get to see the seniors huddling together in the field and working out a strategy to defeat the opposition, which were commonplace before Sanga took over and brought his own Kandy Nilame style to the field. The bowlers are suffering too due his erratic bowling changes and some cricketing pundits are stunned on why he doesn’t employ slow bowlers more often.
