Sri Lanka refuses to give up on Murali

May 4, 2010 8:00:00 PM - aussieindolanka.com
Muttiah Muralitharan could still feature for Sri Lanka in the World Twenty20, according to captain Kumar Sangakkara, after officials said he’d been ruled out with a groin injury. A statement released by Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) in Colombo earlier said the star off-spinner had been “advised to rest for two or three weeks” following a groin problem he suffered during the team’s two-wicket opening match defeat by New Zealand. That would rule him out of the rest of the World Twenty20. But Sangakkara, speaking after Sri Lanka’s 14-run, rain-affected, win over Zimbabwe here, said Muralitharan — whose place against the Africans was taken by 25-year-old off-spinner Suraj Randiv — would be given a chance to prove his fitness.   www.hindu.com/2010/05/05/stories/2010050551592000.htm
