Murali doubtful for semi-final

CRICKET: Sri Lanka spinner Muttiah Muralitharan is an injury doubt for today’s World Cup semi-final against New Zealand. The 38-year-old, who will retire after the tournament, is struggling with a hamstring injury and knee problem.

“Murali and everyone around him is trying to get him as fit as soon as possible and fit enough to play,” said captain Kumar Sangakkara.
