Grand farewell planned for Muralitharan at Galle

Sri Lanka Cricket has deliberated a grand farewell for Muttiah Muralitharan, who will play his last Test against India from Sunday, but they will not prepare a tailor-made pitch to aid the spin wizard.

He is just eight wickets shy of touching the miraculous 800-wicket, but SLC officials say Muralitharan does not need a pitch suiting his style as he can strike on any pitch.

The cricket authorities have invited all former Test skippers to witness the Test and has even formed a special Muralitharan Farewell Committee to organize the show.

"We are planning to give him a good send-off and we will ensure that the event is memorable," SLC secretary Nishantha Ranatunga told PTI.

SLC will organize a brief event before the commencement of the 1st Test and a grand felicitation at the end of the match.

According to officials, the 38 year old bowler will be welcomed by the local bands from Galle District when he will enter the stadium on the first day.

All former chairmen and secretaries of the board have been invited to witness the farewell Test match and the Galle cricket ground is being spruced up for the occasion.
