It's difficult to say anything about 'Murali' that hasn't already been said.
After retiring from Test match cricket in 2010 with 800 wickets to his name, the Kandy-born offie wound up his career in the long format 92 scalps ahead of his nearest rival - one SK Warne. The on-field rivalry between these two greats of the game sets the scene for a fascinating match-up when they face off in the Melbourne derbies this summer.
Murali's domestic T20 record is just as you'd expect it to be - extraordinary. From 124 matches his 144 wickets have come at just 20.61 runs apiece. Murali has shone in this format, conceding just 6.36 runs per over and reinforcing his reputation as the master of applying pressure in the middle.
One of the game's greats, Murali provides the Renegades not only a prodigious bowling talent, but a senior player in the dressing room with nearly two decades of experience at the highest level.
A lovable character off the field, Murali is sure to become a fan favourite at Etihad Stadium this summer.
