Kapugedera: We want to win for Murali

Feb 24, 2011 7:00:00 PM - aussieindolanka.com
Chamara Kapugedera wants Sri Lanka to win the World Cup as a tribute to Muttiah Muralitharan, who helped secure the trophy back in 1996, and who is set to retire from international cricket at the end of the tournament with a world-record haul of wickets in both Test and ODI formats. "He’s [Muralitharan] a special person, he’s a legend, it will be his last World Cup," Kapugedera said. "Everyone wants to make him proud and give him a very good send off. Everybody is doing their best to take the World Cup back home for Murali and Sri Lanka. It will be a great tribute to Murali." Sri Lanka are one of the favourites for this year’s event, having finished as runners-up in 2007, and they launched their campaign in emphatic style on Sunday, with a 210-run victory over Canada in Hambantota. Saturday’s fixture against Pakistan in Colombo will be a much sterner test, but they go into the match full of confidence.
