Murali bags another 220!

Alex Brown speaks to Muttiah Muralitharan at the end of a tough year.

Muralitharan usually judges himself on wickets, averages and strike-rates,
but he's adopted a vastly different method of gauging his success at the end
of this year: His charity group has built 220 houses for those who lost
everything in the Asian tsunami. And that, more than any 10-wicket haul, is
a successful outcome for Muralitharan, who is now revered as much for his
charity work in Sri Lanka as his on-field deeds.


Nice going indeed....
