The World’s highest wicket-taking bowler in international cricket Muttiah Muralitharan is happy to be in the Sri Lanka’s cricket committee. Along with Muralitharan, the other members on the panel are Roshan Mahanama, Kumar Sangakkara and Aravinda de Silva 


as chairman. “Yes, after ten years of my retirement from international cricket I have given my consent to be in the committee. I have joined this committee to help the game which we all love,” he said yesterday. The 48-year-old former off-spinner, who has 1347 wickets (800, 534 and 13 in Tests, ODIs and T20Is respectively) however, warns, “If our recommendations are not implemented within three months, I will not wait to leave 


the committee.” Muralitharan favours incentive-based contracts for the players. “Definitely, the players are supposed to perform well when we pay them. If they don’t, they have no right to be in the team.” “Even at corporate levels, the employees are given incentives to show their performance and the same rules should apply here,” he concluded.
