Murali record: Security tight in Aus

Sydney:

Cricket Australia have made unprecedented security arrangements in order to avoid a crowd backlash against Sri Lankan spinner Muthiah Muralitharan.

Muralitharan is in Sydney for his first full Australia Test tour in 12 years, as he bids to break local hero Shane Warne's Test wicket record.

Murali met Cricket Australia's top security advisor, to discuss arrangements for his protection this summer.

A security plan has been devised specifically for him because of the long history of animosity between him and Australian crowds.

Plain-clothes security officers will reportedly be stationed near sections of the crowd close to Murali's fielding positions.

At the first sign of trouble, the officers will call for back-up and eject trouble-makers from the ground.
