Whether he was right or wrong with regards to Murali is debatable (though the part about the Indian spinners was bull**** just to pile it on), there was better ways (and times) to say it.I think he's wrong but I don't really have a problem with him saying it now given he was asked directly. If he went out of his way to bring it up then it'd be a bit insensitive, but that's not what happened.
I'm not saying lie and say he was the greatest out if pity, but simply say, he up there among the very best who has played and he will be missed..simple..
But going by the considerably worst things he's said about west Indian crowds, don't know why anyone is shocked by anything the **** says. He shouldn't even have a platform to spew his ignorance and hatred.
