Criticism of Murali: Barking at the moon

IT seems this man Jagath Perera is batting for the past corrupt cricket administrators like Nishantha his brothers and the group. no doubt this man also must be a behind the scene associate of them. Murali can coach any team in the world there is no problem for that but he should have contemplate whether it is reasonable or not to Coach for ten days and give all the vital tips about our grounds spinners and tactics to any visiting team and kill our spinners and young rookies who are trying their best to swim in the rough sea.

Murali said he wanted to prove Aussies that he is a genuine bowler, we can't agree with that comment because earlier Murali has done coaching stint with Aussies and already proved it. so what nonsense he is preaching. also murali said he is a Dual citizen of India and Srilanka and he can any time go and settle in India but because he loves Srilanka he is still living in Srilanka, what a mockery comment is that. we never expected a childish comment like that from a man whom we loved and still love. If murali settle in India and do ten day coaching in India when Aussies are visiting India no doubt, not like srilankan fans Indian fans definitely kick him out of the country, in that case Murali is lucky to be in srilanka and do all what he likes and misuse his popularity in front of the mass who voiced against Aussies and tried their best to defend Murali from chucking allegations. so any way now our young and old patriotic cricketers and fans have proved Murali and a hand full of money greedy Guys who are trying to Justify the unacceptable deed done by Murali is useless. Our young team has beaten Aussies and proved Murali's tactics are very old and outdated. Unfortunately for Rngana Hearath he couldn't play continuously for srilanak because Murali was palying as a leading spinner those days, if RANGANA Played continuously he could have ended up more wickets than Murali claimed and become the Best legitimate bowler ever produced by srilanka. we are not insulting Murali but Rangana Herath never got any allegation against his bowling action. he is an unsung hero of srilankan cricket. finally we all wish Murali to try and become the Full TIME bowling coach of Aussie's and come and beat Srilankan boys. we are 100% sure Murali can't. Murali we wish you all the best in your future attempts to give any tip or any tactic to any visiting team to beat our and your own national team where you played for many years and became world famous bowler and also you became a rich man. we hope now Jagath Perera can understand why the cricket loving public voiced against Murali's 10 day coaching. Good on You Jagath.

Thilanga Sumathipala was in the end made to look like a buffoon! The whole cricket fraternity and the all Sri Lankan intellectuals have come out in support of Murali and made Sumathipala eat his own words!

SLC should sack that team manager who caused this whole drama!

Murali is a legend and we all love and respect him, but coaching asutralia(the no.1 ranked test team, the team who caught him for chucking, the crowd who laughed and insulted whenever he was on the field so much so that he threatened never to tour australia anymore, alongside coach darenn lehmann who called the sri lankan team "cunts,cunts,fucking black cunts!") to beat sri lanka (his own team which is desperately struggling for a win , with young inexperienced players, facing heavy criticism, having very low self confidence and morale) was nothing but Unethical!! On top of that, his dad has to say on news that he supports the aussies!! Is it a surprise that fans and the board are angry with his decision???

Of course I think it was wrong on both sides to blow the training issue out of proportion (sumathipala's in publicly voicing out his displeasure and murali's in publicly defending himself). The best way would have been to both parties to sit and have a private chat..

There is nothing to chat privately about. Murali doesn't need the permission of the Sri Lankan government or the deputy speaker when choosing his employment. Do these politicians own national sportsmen? Sri Lanka as a nation owes Muralitharan and other athletes who have bought glory and fame to their countries. Stop acting like villagers without common sense. Many former cricketers have coached other teams when their own nations have been playing. Pakistanis and Australians have worked for England when England played their own sides. Do you idiots not see what backward third-world fools you make us all look like?

Under any conditions, Sumathipala calling murali traitor is absurd!! Murali has done more to his country than sumathipala can ever dream about..

Even I think sumathipala is a fool who doesn't respect our legends and lets loose talk... Murali is free to coach any team but somehow, the timing was all wrong for this series... Didn't matter anyway, so pointless arguing it now!!

Don't but the Murali - traitor nonsense for one minute. I have made my point in other threads but the English coach is an Australian and no one in Australia is sending Bayliss to jail! Also if we are so concerned about patriotism why don't we appoint a SL coach? Finally there are traitors in this debate and they work for SLC, stealing our money and pushing political agendas while the game begs for mercy and some attention. If SLC wants to be serious about patriotism please clean your own house.

There is a great piece on the Indian court ruling and if SLC wants to be patriotic please adopt it! This is the BCCI we are talking about - yes they have invented the wheel and we are still trying to fit square pegs in to round holes.
