Muttiah Muralitharan is a Sri Lankan cricket coach and former cricketer and is regarded as one of the most successful and greatest bowlers in the sport's history. He is the only bowler to take 800 wickets in test cricket and 530 One Day International (ODI) wickets and continues to hold a record of maximum wickets in international cricket. Muralitharan, who is also known as Murali among friends and colleagues, is the first wrist-spinning off-spinner in the history of the game and his bowling action has landed him in controversy on numerous occasions throughout his career spanning over decades. Murali was called out for his bowling action on three different occasions and cleared by the ICC after subsequent tests. He also faced criticism from cricketers and noted personalities for his bowling action. Murali talks about his two-decade cricket career, his love for the game and the controversies and criticism which came along the way. Murali also talks about his relations with cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar, who released the trailer of a biopic based on his life. He also says he is a proud Tamilian and answers controversy about his political connections with former Sri Lankan President Rajapaksa and his party. He also terms the IPL as a platform to filter talent, which will prove a boon for Indian cricket.
