    Default Muttiah Muralitharan rules out Test return

    Muttiah Muralitharan has ruled out the prospect of making a return to the Test fold with Sri Lanka.

    22724 - Muttiah Muralitharan rules out Test return

    The world's most successful spinner bowed out of international cricket after the World Cup, but is still playing domestically and will soon link up with Gloucestershire for the Twenty20 competition.

    However, he was the subject of debate following Sri Lanka's dire capitulation in the first Test with England in Cardiff.

    Muralitharan has admitted it was the country's worst display but has no desire to return to aid their battle.

    "I think it was the worst-ever performance," the 39-year-old said. "When I boarded the flight, I was convinced it would be a draw. There had been a lot of time lost to rain and neither side looked as though they were in a position to win it, especially on such a flat wicket. To learn that we had lost was certainly a big shock.

    "Still, these things happen in cricket. I remember when England were bowled out for 46 in the West Indies some years back. What we must remember is that because a team loses in that manner, it does not automatically become a bad side."

    When asked if he could be lured back, he said: "I was happy to finish and I decided a long time ago that once I retired from Test match cricket I would stay retired.

    "If you keep on coming back when someone asks, it means you were not retired in the first place."
