Beloved former CSK Player Murali expressed his disappointment today with IPL ruling baring Srilankan players from Chennai IPL Matches. In a recent interview, he mentioned
- It's a sad [day] for cricket as we are not allowed to play in a certain part of India.
- I played for 20 years in the Lankan team, I did not have any problems as a Tamil. The government and the cricket board always supported me throughout my career even when I went through a lot of problems. Earlier there was a time of war between the Tamils and Lankans but now people are living in peace in my country
- Chennai is like a second home for me as my wife Madhimalar is from there. It is a sentimental situation for me. We do not want to get into politics and we just want to play our cricket and entertain our fans.
