Royal Challengers Bangalore spinner K P Appanna has credited Muttiah Muralidaran for his match-winning four-wicket haul against Rajasthan Royals in an IPL match.

Appanna said the Sri Lankan spin wizard's guidance was of great help to him.

He also said that he is not overawed by the fact that while Muttiah Murlidaran was sitting out, he was getting the opportunity to represent RCB.

"He (Murali) is a great bowler and he is sitting out only because we can play only four overseas players, but his contribution is there. He always guides me. Infact, he gave tips about how to bowl on this wicket," said the 23-year-old orthodox left-arm spinner, who ripped through the Rajasthan batting line-up with impressive figures of four for 19.

The bowler said though he cherished all his dismissals, the one of Owais Shah was his prized scalp.

"Though I got four wickets, Owais Shah's was the prized one. It gave me satisfaction as he has been playing so well and I could deceive him with flight," Appanna said.
