murali, gloucestershire gladiatorsSri Lankan spin bowling sensation Muttiah Muralitheran is returning to Gloucestershire Cricket for this summer’s 2012 Friends Life Twenty20 competition.

Murali joined the club last season and played in all 15 of Gloucestershire’s t20 games, proving a huge attraction and finishing joint top wicket-taker with 12.

Now supporters can look forward to seeing the man with a record 800 Test wickets demonstrating his art at the County Ground, Bristol, again.

Murali confirmed: “I thoroughly enjoyed my first FL t20 season with Gloucestershire and I am looking forward to returning to the club.”

Gloucestershire CCC director of cricket John Bracewell said: “As a side we are delighted that Murali is returning.

“I know our players gained a great deal from having Murali in and around our dressing room.

“His enthusiasm and love for the game - combined with his exceptional skills - are something that will draw any crowd.”

Gloucestershire’s 2012 Friends Life Twenty20 campaign gets off to an exciting start with a Thursday night home clash against Somerset on June 14.
