October 30, 2017

 Quintus de Zylva

Our Murali was tormented in the Boxing Day test match at the MCG by Darrell Hair when he called Murali for “chucking” as shown in the photograph.

Hair rode high for some years until Murali was finally cleared by the ICC of having an action that was within the fifteen degree limits of bending his arm. The Sri Lanka Cricket Foundation of Victoria supported Murali through several episodes of this torment. Hemaka Amarasuriya the then President of the Sri Lanka Cricket Board arrived in Australia to lend support to us as we had Murali visit several well-known defamation lawyers in Melbourne and Brisbane.

Ruchira’s Split Second Escape does not suggest a Helmet

September 12, 2017

Bipin Dani, in Pakistan Observer, 13 September 2017, with the title Won’t use helmet, I am fit enough to move out of danger area: Ruchira

Sri Lankan umpire Ruchira Palliyaguruge had a “lucky escape” on Wednesday night.The 50-year-old field umpire could survive the serious injury on Wednesday’s only T-20 match between Sri Lanka and India at the R. Premeadasa Stadium. The powerful straight drive shot from Kohli’s bat (off Lasith Malinga, 16th over of India innings) was “nearly a killer”. Thanks to Palliyaguruge, who fell down on the ground an ugly incident was avoided.
