Dr. David Young: Murali Fit to Play in Third Test

ri Lanka’s ace off-spinner Muttiah Muralitharan has been declared fit to play the third Test against Pakistan commencing on July 20 at Colombo's SSC ground. This was revealed by Dr David Young, an Australian Orthopaedic surgeon, who examined the spinner.

Speaking from Galle on Tuesday, Young said, “I examined Muralitharan’s knee injury in Colombo and he is now fit enough to play the next Test. If coach (Trevor Bayliss) and selectors want him, he can play now. He is as fit as ever.”

World’s highest wicket taker (770 in Tests and 505 in ODIs) sustained injury during a practice session just ahead of the ongoing Test series and was ruled out for the first two Test matches.

“Murali has started bowling practice and decision about him would be taken after the conclusion of the ongoing Test,” said Ashantha De Mel, the chairman of the selection committee.

Malinga to play in Australian version of the IPL

Malinga is considered to be the premier T20 pace bowler in the world. He was among the top wicket takers in both the IPL conducted in South Africa and the T20 world cup in England. He is bound to be extremely hard to get away in the bouncy pitches in Australia. Whether he plays in Australia or not depends on whether he gets permission from Sri Lanka Cricket.
