Muttiah Muralitharan was the most satisfied cricketer at the World Cup opening ceremony in Cape Town.
Not because the Sri Lankan off spinner was finally free of injury nor that umpire Darrell Hair was leaving him alone.
Muralitharan was pleased because he had spent the whole day trying to get the autographs of every single player at the tournament and, according to him, succeeded. Fifteen players from 14 teams, all 210 of them
And as an encore, he will be trying to take the wicket of every single player at the tournament.
