SRH appoint Muralitharan as bowling coach
Former Sri Lankan off-spinner Muttiah Muralitharan has been appointed as the bowling coach and team mentor of the Sunrisers Hyderabad for the 2015 IPL season. Needless to say his expertise is bound to help budding spinners in the Sunrisers Squad, especially the likes of Karn Sharma who had a disappointing Test debut.
The 42-year-old represented Royal Challengers Bangalore in the previous IPL season but featured in the playing eleven only once in a while and failed to create much of an impact.
Muralitharan might have called it quits from the game but has achieved tremendous T20 success while representing CSK in particular, winning the title in both 2010 and 2011, as well as the Champions League T20 in South Africa in 2010. He picked up 63 wickets in 66 IPL games at an excellent economy rate of 6.69.
