Skill, magic and determination are words that clearly define the career of this spin wizard from the island of Sri Lanka. Born and brought up in the cultural capital of the island, Kandy, this right arm off spinner with a rather unorthodox bowling action made quick inroads into the national side playing his first Test at the age of 20. Known for his ability to turn the ball on any given surface and his continuous enthusiasm for the game, Muttiah Muralidaran was quickly nicknamed the “smiling assassin”.
