Muttiah Muralitharan, the world’s most successful Test bowler, was seen in a tizzy after Sunrisers’ loss against Gujarat. Marco Yensson, bowling in the last over, had 22 runs to defend, but he failed to do so. Seeing the poor bowling, Muralitharan’s anger flared up and he stood up on his seat grooving.
Murali is handling the coaching of Sunrisers
Gujarat stopped the victory chariot of Sunrisers, which had won five consecutive matches after the first two defeats. Despite the early wickets of Gujarat’s top order, Hyderabad had to face defeat.
Talking about Muralitharan, he is currently the bowling coach of Sunrisers Hyderabad. Muttiah could not contain himself after seeing spinner Rashid Khan hurling sixes against his strike bowler.
yenson had won first
Yenson has proved to be a very important bowler for Hyderabad so far. In the match played against Royal Challengers, he did a golden duck to a batsman like Virat Kohli.
The 6 feet tall Yensen’s seam, swing and pace set him apart from the rest of the bowlers. That’s why Williamson trusted him. But this time Yenson failed to live up to the trust of the captain and the team management.
Fans remembered Dravid
Muralitharan lost his cool and reminded the fans of another such instance when another cricket legend lost his cool. He is none other than Rahul Dravid, who is also known for his calm nature.
This match went to a game between Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2014. RR’s mentor Dravid was furious with the result and threw his hat in anger. In that match, the bowling of James Faulkner incited Dravid’s anger. Eight years later, as Muralitharan vented his anger in the dug-out, the fans remembered Rahul’s action.
