I am happy to give more tests


MuralitharanPrepared to do anything to prove he is no cheat, Sri Lankan off-spinner Muttiah Muralitharan says it annoys him when those pointing fingers at legality of his action refuse to accept scientific test results, which have time and again proved his innocence.

“The controversy never ends,” he told The Independent here. “It does frustrate and annoy me at times as people believe in science and technology for everything but when it comes to me they can’t, or don’t want to,” he added.

The charismatic spinner wished there was some method which could conclusively clear his action but added the issue no longer affects him as much as it did earlier. “I have tried to do everything I can do to convince them but with some it is impossible. But most important thing is I am happy within myself,” he explained.

Despite giving numerous tests in the past, Murali said he has no qualms in being tested again if need arises but asked his detractors to believe in results as there was no other way to check legality of his action.

“I will happily do all tests people want to prove that I am not cheating. I have never been afraid of being tested because if I was doing something wrong then I should be stopped,” he said.

“The only way to judge me though is by using technology. The human eye cannot see exactly what is going on and we should believe what technology tells us. I wish there was a way of accurately testing players in the middle but there isn’t yet,” Murali added.
