Thanks to warunanc for pointing out that the tag #Murali hit Twitter’s trending topics list. That prompted me to take a look at the other tweets mentioning Murali, and to my pleasant surprise I found that Graeme Smith, Anil Kumble, Shane Warne and thousands of fans from around the globe paying tribute to Muralitharan via Twitter.
This is perhaps the first time a Sri Lankan has ever reached Twitter’s trending topics list.
Here are a few interesting tweets.
There are literally thousands more. If you find a fitting tribute to the champ on Twitter, post the link to the Tweet by leaving a comment below.
