Wishes going to the great but 'controversial' legend from SL. He's 42 today.
Australians were jealous of him as murali was the leading wicket taker rather than their beloved warne ��.Anyways Murali was a truly magician , irrespective of the rubbish talk of him being chucker.
Today on January 5th, 1995
"During the second Test between Sri Lanka and Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Boxing Day 1995, Australian umpire Darrell Hair called Sri Lankan spinner Muttiah Muralitharan for throwing in front of a crowd of 55000. The off-spinner was no-balled seven times in three overs by Hair, who believed the then 23 year old was bending his arm and straightening it in the process of delivery; an illegal action in cricket."
Hair and Emerson!
