New Delhi: Sri Lankan off-spinner Muttiah Muralitharan is counted among the most successful spinners in the world. No one has been able to break his record of 800 wickets in Test cricket so far. Apart from this, the name of this veteran player is 534 in ODIs and 13 wickets in T20 wickets. Muralitharan also holds the record for taking the most wickets in international cricket. He has taken 1347 wickets.
Muttiah Muralitharan may have retired, but his spin is still a matter of discussion. And now his son Naren is also following in the footsteps of his father.
His sons bowl like Muralitharan
Actually, a video of Muttiah Muralitharan and his son Naren on social media is becoming increasingly viral on social media. In this video, Muralitharan is bowling while doing his unique action. At the same time, his son Naren is bowling exactly like his father. It is very difficult to differentiate between the action of both, while the runup of both also looks similar. Let us inform that Muraleedharan tweeted this video and wrote, ‘Father and son time!’

Controversies had to be faced due to action
Even though Murali has so many world records to his name, there has always been controversy about his action. Many cricket experts and umpires have raised questions on this, India’s Bishan Singh Bedi also suspected a mistake in Murali’s action, but then the ICC gave him the green signal. Murali retired from international cricket after the 2011 World Cup final.
