- In a statement released, Muralitharan slammed the administrators of the game and claimed that he has no trust in the system currently in place in the island nation.
- “I am of the view that it is an insincere, cunning move, more to use us when the cricket administration is in such a deplorable state and standby the sentiments that Mahela has expressed not able to trust the system as per his own experience of attempting to resolve pressing issues which was never implemented,” Muralitharan said in a statement released.
- During the IPL, Muralitharan had unequivocally said that politicians with little knowledge of the game were responsible for the deteriorating quality of cricket in Sri Lanka.
