Australia have roped in former Sri Lankan Spin legend Muttiah Muralitharan as consultant ahead of the test series against Sri Lanka.
Muttiah Muralitharan had begun to work with Australia’s spinners in their training sessions in Colombo, ahead of the Test matches, as a consultant.
Muttiah Muralitharan previously worked with Australia in a short-term consulting role ahead of their Test series against Pakistan in the UAE, in 2014
However, Murali has chequered history with Australia.
When he was playing for Sri Lanka it was Australia that made persistent allegations of throwing or chucking, against him.
1995 / 1996 : Australian Umpire Darrell Hair calls Muttiah Muralitharan for chucking.
1999 : Australian Umpire Ross Emerson calls Murali for chucking.
Then captain Arjuna Ranatunga, the Sri Lankan cricket team and the people of Sri Lanka stood by Murali during those troubled times.
