Sangakarra desperate for Murali to play in final

Sangakarra desperate for Murali to play in final

Sri Lanka captain Kumar Sangakkara has backed Muttiah Muralitharan to be fit enough to play in Saturday's World Cup final, because "there's no other way we can have it."
The world's most prolific wicket-taker has sustained hamstring, knee, groin and side injuries in Sri Lanka's run to the final, but after missing training on Thursday, he was able to bowl in the nets on Friday.
Sangakkara says Muralitharan's mood is "upbeat" and that it will be "great to hopefully have him" in the team for Saturday's final against India.
