Kolkata: He has bamboozled many batsmen during his heyday but international cricket's most highest wicket-taker Muttiah Muralitharan reckons that it was easier to bowl during his younger days when T20 cricket was not in vogue.
'It was easier to bowl during our younger days'
"It was easier to bowl during our times. Now the game has evolved and it is not easy to bowl. We did not play too much T20s and in Tests, they didn't hit as many sixes like they do today," he said during a promotional event.
The 45-year old, who has 800 Test wickets from 133 matches, also said winning the World Cup 1996 was the best moment in his career.
"I would cherish my 1996 World Cup win as that was most important thing for Sri Lankan cricket. For Sunrisers, it was when we won the IPL trophy in 2016," SRH bowling coach said about their team lead the table with three wins from as many matches in the ongoing IPL.
The promotion event organised by Rupa was a session where the likes of Sunrisers skipper Kane Williamson was also present.
