    I chose like mainly because hate is a strong word that should always be used with great care, and reserved for the Mugabes, Milosevics, Hitlers etc. of this World.

    I've never called Murali a chucker, but, what I have said before & will now state again is that Murali's action looks awful. He's far from alone in that, of course, but has been singled out infinitely more than any of his brethren in the "dodgy-looking action" club. That probably says more about Murali's accusers than it does about him.

    Of course science has exonerated Murali, or rather implicated everyone else bar Sarwan, but in a not atypical fudge the ICC has left us with a rule on throwing that cannot be implimented except retrospectively.

    Ah, well.

    Me too. ^^^. He is an extremely nice person, in fact, a trait that is shared by the contemporary all time greats like Warnie, Sachin, Lara etc.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    Murali is without doubt one of the finest men playing cricket today. Full of life and truly celeberating the Joy of Cricket every moment he spends on the field.

    He is a victim of ICI's unsure and dragging policies on 'throwing' but that can not and will not take away, for posterirty, from his phenomenal skills with a cricket ball. With or without a bent arm, there is no one in the world who can control the leather sphere and virtually make it talk as he can. Murali bowling to the top batsmen in the world is one of the finest sights in contemporary cricket.

    What has kaneria really done to be bracketed with greats like Anil Kumble?

    There are other spinners like Warne, Harbhajan and Vettori who happen to be class act and much better than the mentioned inexperianced leggie.

    And of course, Kaneria's nationality had no bearing on that point.

    Murali will tour Australia in the future

    Murali has now officially said he will tour Australia in the future ! That should put an end to any speculation about his participation in the World XI v Australia ICC super series coming up. Here's the cricinfo news item-

    'I'll play in Australia again' - Murali

    Cricinfo staff

    January 12, 2005


    A year ago Muttiah Muralitharan threatened never to tour Australia again. John Howard, the prime minister, had publicly decided Muralitharan was a chucker, whenever he bowled there were no-ball yells from the stands, and it was the only country where he had been called for throwing.

    But the reception Muralitharan received during the World Cricket Tsunami Appeal has changed his mind. "I will come to Australia from now on," Muralitharan told the Sydney Morning Herald. "Before the game it was one of the things I had to decide, whether to come again or not. The whole crowd was very supportive and helped to raise a lot of money that will help people in my country."

    Muralitharan, who decided after Howard's comments not to tour Australia last winter because of "personal reasons", met the prime minister after the match and was welcomed to Australia. "We are very happy you are back," Howard told him. Syed Ashraful Huq, the Asian XI manager, said Muralitharan smiled. "The fact Murali was cheered by everybody, he was in a completely different mood after that," Huq said.

    Sri Lanka's next scheduled Test tour to Australia is in 2007-08, but Muralitharan should return as part of the World XI in October for a Test match and three one-day games.

    *edit* I put down something malicious but have reconsidered it so not to stoop to a level.
