The story of how an immigrant became a cricket star is told in 800. During the civil war, Muthiah Muralidaran’s family was compelled to leave Tamil Nadu and relocate to Sri Lanka. Muralidaran took comfort in cricket despite the hardships of their new environment. He spent hours each day perfecting his bowling technique. Despite being the target of discrimination, he ended up with the most wickets in Test cricket history.

His early bowling dominance over his elders inspired them to assist him in reaching the pinnacle of his profession. The Australian cricket team suspended him for bowling with a false action after he made it to the national side. He didn’t give up and, after adjusting his technique, he returned to international cricket stronger than ever, this time collecting 800 wickets.
