Without bowling, life is ‘boring’ for Muttiah Muralitharan. So at the slightest of excuses, cricket’s greatest spinner is found doing what he does best: befuddling batsmen. His recent outing came at a Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) training session, because there were “not as many net bowlers.”
It is these small motivations that keep the highest wicket-taker in Tests and ODIs going. Muralitharan, SRH’s bowling consultant, thinks that everybody should find their own motivation to improve, especially in the closed environment in which IPL will be played this year.
