Muralidaran Formally Inducted Into ICC Cricket Hall Of Fame

The legendary off-spinner, with 800 Test wickets to his name, became the first Sri Lanka to be inducted into the prestigious list. The most successful bowler in Tests and One Day Internationals, Muttiah Muralidaran, was today formally inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame by ICC Chief Executive David Richardson during the innings break of the India versus Sri Lanka ICC Champions Trophy match at The Oval.

The retired Sri Lanka spin great was awarded the honour along with Arthur Morris, George Lohmann and Karen Rolton by fellow ICC Cricket Hall of Famers and members of the media. He became the first player from Sri Lanka and the 83rd overall to be formally inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame when Mr. Richardson presented him with a commemorative framed cap.

Muralidaran: “It is a moment of great pride and honour to be receiving this award, especially from the ICC which is the ultimate any cricketer can aspire to achieve. The induction during this prestigious ICC Champions Trophy makes it even more remarkable. “I thank the ICC for making this possible because this is a moment I will cherish throughout life.”
