Wellington: Australian Jamie Siddons, tipped to take over as Wellington coach, is not excited at the prospect of Sri Lakan spin wizard Muttiah Muralitharan joining Wellington Firebirds as their overseas player.
Muralitharan was signed Friday, a day after Siddons was interviewed for the vacant Firebirds coaching job.
Asked about Muralitharan's signing, Siddons said: "That's good ... well, I hope it's good. I'll have to think that one through. I probably have some thoughts but I don't want to discuss them."
