Muthaiah Muralitharan was admitted to the Apollo hospital in Chennai due to a Cardiac Issue. He is Sunrisers Hyderabad’s bowling coach. He turned 49 on April 17, 2021.
Muralitharan was discharged on Monday after undergoing a coronary angioplasty at a hospital in Chennai.
“He underwent successful coronary angioplasty with stents yesterday under the care of Dr. G. Sengottuvelu, senior interventional cardiologist,” Apollo Hospitals said in a release on Monday.
Muralitharan has represented Sri Lanka in 133 Tests, 350 ODIs, and 12 T20 Internationals. He took 800 Test wickets while picking up 534 scalps in ODIs and 13 in T20s Internationals.
Muralitharan would rejoin the Sunrisers Hyderabad squad after undergoing the mandatory seven-day quarantine period, sources said.
Muralitharan, who has 800 wickets in the longest format of the game, will reason the SRH camp after being discharged from the hospital.
SRH’s middle order is badly missing Kane Williamson and Warner said if the New Zealand skipper recovers he might get an opportunity. “Got to move forward, put some smiles on our faces. Have been speaking to the physio and Williamson is coming along nicely and I’m sure if he’s ready to go he might get an opportunity,” Warner said.
