Murali’s biopic ‘800’ released

6 September, 2023

Former Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar unveiled the trailer of ‘800’, the biopic of Muttiah Muralitharan, in the presence of the Lankan off-spinner and former Sri Lankan cricketer and captain Sanath Jayasuriya.

Despite facing frequent and intrusive scrutiny, along with a slew of extensive tests, for his bowling action, cricketer Muttiah Muralitharan rarely engaged in verbal responses. The off-spinner consistently adhered to the “show, don’t tell” strategy, silencing his critics by showcasing his exceptional skills on the field.

Currently a member of the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame, Muralitharan is widely recognised as one of the greatest bowlers in cricket history, having achieved the remarkable feat of taking 800 Test wickets and over 530 wickets in ODIs.

Now, the world eagerly anticipates the upcoming biopic titled ‘800’, which will shed light on Muralitharan’s life and journey.
