Wicket for Muralitharan with his final ball on Sri Lankan soil

Muttiah Muralitharan

Muttiah Muralitharan is all smiles as umpire Steve Davis gives Scott Styris out - LBW - giving the champion spinner a wicket in his final delivery on Sri Lankan soil. Muralitharan will retire from limited overs cricket at the end of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 and the World Cup semi-final played against New Zealand on March 29 at the R. Premadasa Stadium was his final One-Dayer on home soil. AFP PHOTO/William WEST.

A perfect script. A fairytale ending for a man who thoroughly deserves it. Boy are we going to miss him.

A great cricketer. A great human being. I'm lucky to have grown up watching you destroy batting line ups and at time bowling line ups too. No wonder that god or fate has given you such great fair wells! You deserve to say good bye to the cricket world with the world cup in your hands Murali. All the best!!
