Tensions: Arjuna advices Murali not to tour down-under

Former Sri Lankan captain Arjuna Ranatunga has advised his country's top spin bowler Muttiah Muralitharan not to tour with the team in Australia because of the threat of racist taunts. Muralitharan has had a troubled relationship with the Australian fans and there have been chants of 'chucker' when he bowled during the last tour Down Under. Some fans even threw bananas on him during the 2004 tour.
