Sri Lanka spinner Muttiah Muralitharan, the leading wicket-taker in test cricket history, has launched his autobiography with the book expected to go on sale in August.

The book was unveiled Sunday and is entitled "800," referring to his number of test wickets.

The 38-year-old Muralitharan retired from the tests last year and will quit limited-overs cricket after the World Cup, which starts Saturday.

    Fayad Monday, 14 February 2011 06:33 AM

    Ands Monday, 14 February 2011 07:43 AM

    wicks Monday, 14 February 2011 08:28 AM

    wait. the books will be in shelves for years.
    people will buy out of love for him but reading it?

    Sella Samie Tuesday, 15 February 2011 05:03 AM

    first of all we congr., However as remark....you have to donate on whatever you earned so far. We everybody knows that former pakistan captan Imran kahn built cancer hospital to help the public. His name and popularity is still there world wide. Why cant murali do this to our nation....rather than again & again earning US dollars.

    I will buy it and quickly turn pages to see whether you have mentioned the magical bowlling method.

    lionheart Monday, 14 February 2011 03:43 AM

    Yes you could launch it in India and go and reside in India as you have mentioned to many. Have you said that you will not have anything to do with SL cricket once you retire???? Typical of you Murali.

    DireStraits Monday, 14 February 2011 03:49 AM

    Be careful you might get your fingers in a twist when you 'quickly turn pages'

    roshan raz Monday, 14 February 2011 11:34 AM

    CommonSensePrevails Monday, 14 February 2011 01:39 PM

    i'm sure it'll be available on Amazon for online purchase.
    I eagerly await reading this. The last autobiography of a Lankan cricket i read was 'Retired Hurt' by Roshan Mahanama which was very moving. Hopefully this will give some insight to the workings of the great mind of Murali

    Cobra Monday, 14 February 2011 04:27 AM

    Murali, can I book a copy now?

    Sanga Monday, 14 February 2011 04:34 AM

    King of Wait! cant wait...

    Shan Monday, 14 February 2011 04:41 AM

    Because of these type of people i am proud to be a sri lankan

    Lanke Banda Monday, 14 February 2011 02:50 PM

    National Treasure U Murali. You will be included in the History books of S.L. as the best ever Sportsman,Gentleman S.L.Has produced. May the Triple Gem Bless you and keep you going with loooooong life.

    Antonan Monday, 14 February 2011 02:56 PM

    Politicians might try to gain mileage using your popularity during the launch. Please do not get any politician involved in this.

    josh Monday, 14 February 2011 05:13 AM

    HE HAS NEVER SAID THAT!!!

    KHKaru Monday, 14 February 2011 04:20 PM

    Whatever Murali's decision about his future, is his and his alone. We should be grateful for what he has done already for our country through cricket.Thanks a lot, ' Spider ' and good luck in your future endeavours, wherever you wish to be.

    Mifaz Monday, 14 February 2011 04:27 PM

    You all are the type of racist people creating an environment, where Sri Lanka is failing to retaining the talent

    Konde bendapu china Monday, 14 February 2011 05:16 AM

    Thank you Very Much for what you have done,you are Legend

    Darwin Monday, 14 February 2011 05:20 AM
