Sri Lankan’s legendary spinner Muttiah Muralitharan has been admitted to a hospital in Chennai due to cardiac issues. Sources have told that the spinner, who turned 49 on Saturday, underwent a angioplasty and is currently stable.

Muralitharan is in India as part of Sunrisers Hyderabad’s coaching staff for the Indian Premier League (IPL). Sunrisers Hyderabad CEO, K Shanmugam, told that Muralitharan underwent angioplasty on Sunday morning. “He got some scans done in Sri Lanka and when he was in Chennai, he consulted a few doctors and doctors suggested that he undergoes a procedure and it was done immediately,” Shanmugam said.

Muralitharan represented Sri Lanka in 133 Tests, 350 ODIs and 12 T20 Internationals. He took a staggering 800 wickets in the longest format, 534 in the ODIs and 13 in the T20s. He was also part of Sri Lanka’s ODI World Cup triumph in 1996.
