Members of the Sri Lankan camp in Australia for the CB series were the target of verbal abuse and had eggs thrown at them in Hobart. Muttiah Muralitharan and a team selector were part of a group walking from a restaurant to the team hotel and the selector & murali was hit on the back by an egg. As a result, the Sri Lankan board has asked Cricket Australia (CA) to tighten security around the team.Muralitharan's presence is bound to complicate matters. The spinner, who is the world's leading Test wicket-taker, has had a difficult time in Australia in the past. He was no-balled for throwing early in his career in 1995-96 and some Australian spectators have heckled him on subsequent tours. The reaction was so hostile Muralitharan refused to tour Australia in 2004, but he returned for Sri Lanka's series last November when the trouble seemed to have eased off. Does the legend deserves this incident? Whether he want to continue his current CB series in Australia?....Justify these statements.......


Nice post machi.. Murali is a legend. No spinner can replace him.. Let's see his spin variations in the upcoming series..

Its hard to believe tat australians did tis naughty egg throw on a lengendary spinner Muttiah. Every time he reaches australia he was insulted by the australians. Its better for him not to tour australia.
