First thing that came to mind when I saw that name was Muthiah Muralitharan ...

Is he from Malaysia? I googled Muthiah Muralitharan and it is stated that he is a Sri Lankan cricketer.

I think he was a very good player from Taiping who decided to pursue studies instead of badminton, I think did very well in studies... If not mistaken was in Sunway College when I was there doing A levels.

Anyway, I heard of Muralidesan from the papers as mentioned by JasonMichael but mostly as a junior or reserve player of the national team. Don't know what he's doing right now.

You must be curious as to why i am asking about him. I actually have the pleasure to play with him yesterday.
I am still excited cause i am only a social player.
You can tell that he was once a pro from his strokes and court coverage.

Of course i still lose to him when he partners that veteran while i partner the best member from our group.
Jason, i will ask Murali when i see him next time. It would not be a pleasant surprise if you just pop up and play with him. It will look like a challenge.

Its a shame he quit badminton and took another career path. Prize money and career growth in badminton is still shite compared to other racket sports like tennis. Badminton is very demanding, you gotta work really hard, spend lots of money and yet the return prize money is not that brilliant. they gotta increase the prize money and that will attract more players.
I think any sport popular in western countries have huge prize money (ie. tennis, football - yes i mean soccer, american football, baseball etc) but any sport dominated by the asians....not so good prize money. Its a shame isn't?
