Sri Lanka’s senior cricketers Angelo Mathews and Dimuth Karunaratne have backed the country’s spin legend Muttiah Muralitharan. Responding to this, these players said that there was a lot of hatred against us and that it was done by parties who wanted to create rift and inequality between the players and the administration. A while ago, the veteran spinner bitterly condemned some of the senior players on the national team for a contract dispute. Mathews, Karunaratne and Kusal Perera were involved in this controversy with the board.

According to ‘Island Cricket’, all these players have sent a letter to Muralidharan saying, ‘All these disputes are not just for money. We assume that you are not properly informed or misinformed about the correct sequence of events. ‘It reads further,’ Wherever we are called by our name, you have shown tremendous resentment and hatred against the whole team and us. Constantly hitting player failures can be quite detrimental to player morale. It could have been done in a meeting instead of a live TV show.

49-year-old Muralitharan, who took 800 wickets in Test cricket, said senior cricketers were cutting back their salaries and preventing other young players from signing contracts. Muralidharan said the players did not take it when the deal was given by the board. In such a situation, they will no longer get a central contract. This affects the country’s Test cricketers, as they do not receive their monthly salary from the SLC and the team does not have to play any Test before November.
