Muttiah Muralitharan, the Sri Lankan offspinner, has become the latest cricketer to call for life bans for those guilty of fixing. Fellow spinning great Shane Warne and New Zealand captain Daniel Vettori had also demanded similarly harsh punishment for cheats after three Pakistan players were provisionally suspended by the ICC for their alleged involvement in spot-fixing during the Lord’s Test last month.
"If they are guilty, they should get a life ban, that’s the most important thing," Murali told ESPNcricinfo in Centurion ahead of his match for Chennai Super Kings against Wayamba on Wednesday. "The younger generation should not follow that, so the punishment should be harsh if [players] are guilty."
