Keen to beat Sri Lanka in its own spin game, Australia has roped in local spin great Muttiah Muralitharan to help its slow bowlers ahead of the three-test series beginning at Pallekele later this month.

The 44-year-old former off-spinner, still the highest wicket-taker in test cricket with 800 scalps, had a similar short-term consulting stint with Australia in 2014.

"Murali's got a lot of experience in Sri Lanka," Australian captain Steve Smith said. "He took a truckload of wickets.

"It's great to have someone like that helping our spinners in this series - to give us that insight. He's been really good around the group so far, and he's enjoying his time with us."

    When SLC is not using our retired star players as advisers they look for work available elsewhere. Can't blame Murali. Even Vass left sometime back.

    Well said

    With all his expertise we cannot expect him to sit at home twiddling his thumbs. If we do not use our best they will be grabbed by others. Mahesa and Vass first and now Murali.

    It is for sure "No Free Service". However, now and in the past, "Money" has been the weapon of destruction in the human race.

    U R Correct Ram, not only cricketers, that's why all good dedicated professionals migrate to offer their services in other countries.

    So what? Didn't we hire Dave Whatmore as the head coach who is an Australian citizen when we beat Australia at the world cup in 1996?

    Aussi you don't need any further training to beat our team.

    Imagine a man who was abused, humiliated and shouted down by Australians in the not so distant past being appointed the spinning coach of the Aussie team! Haire you got no place to hide, do you?

    money is not the destructive force, its the attitude towards money!
