Sri Lanka v India 1st Test at Galle Presentation:
Murali: "I'd like to thank the president for coming to support me. Thanks to my wife and family for their support. To my team-mates, past and present, through the 19 years for supporting me... To the cricket board and officials, and everyone else." Well, thank YOU Murali!

"I started playing when I was 8 years old and I still listen to my coach from school days. Arjuna Ranatunga and de Silva and all those guys helped me through the tough times in 1995.. the umpires make their judgments through naked eye, so nothing against them.. I have no grudge against them and happy to have made it through the tough times. I always thought if something goes wrong I can bowl leg spin and continue playing cricket!"

"I'm available for the World Cup if the selectors need me. I want to play some more Twenty20 cricket. I made a lot of friends through cricket and sometimes my team-mates said I talk too much with opposition players!"

Sangakkara: "From the start, winning the Test was the aim, that would have been the perfect send-off for Murali too. Pleased that he got to 800 and all the best to him. Malinga was truly the MoM, the way he bowled turned things around and made things easy for Murali and the rest.. Malinga's stand with Herath made a big difference. We must appreciate the groundsmen under Jayananda Warnaweera for his efforts.. on another ground, this match may not have been possible after all the rain."

Virender Sehwag is the "most stylish player of the match" and wins a motorbike for his efforts.

Malinga is deservedly Man of the Match. "I am playing after three years in Tests and it was a memorable Tests, so I am pleased. I am happy he took 800 and I will treasure the moment." He just smiles when Greig asks him whether he was worried he'll take all the wickets!

Dhoni: "Well of course, out of the 15 sessions played only one session we won, so that's not the ideal start to the series. Happy with the way Sehwag played.. Mithun bowled well, so plenty to look forward to. Great moment for Murali, we all knew he will come up with a great show being the great bowler he is, but that did not put us under pressure. Glad that he reached the magical figure of 800. You need a bit of experience given the conditions, so we did miss our senior seamers, still I am happy with the way Ishant and Mithun came back on the third day."

Lorgat:"This is a special day. All the fans have stayed on right to the end. On the behalf of ICC and the Indian team, we wish Murali the very best. You have been a living legend and extremely special to all of us. Thanks Murali from all of us."
