Sri Lankan spin wizard Muttiah Muralitharan today said there’s no point creating a controversy over Sachin Tendulkar’s revelation on Greg Chappell.

“Tendulkar has told the truth and the experiences he went through and spoke from his heart…India should take this in a positive manner and ensure that they don’t repeat the same while appointing a coach,” Muralitharan told reporters here on the sidelines of the CAB’s Vision 2020 programme.

The all time highest wicket-taker who’s been roped in as CAB’s spin bowling consultant, refused to comment any further.

“Chappell is no more the Indian coach, he’s past so it does not really affect at this point of time. There’s no point making a controversy on it. I don’t want to comment anything else,” Murali said reacting to Tendulkar’s revelation in his autobiography ‘Playing It My Way’ that will hit the stands tomorrow.
