Thursday, 21 November 2013 - 11:43

Visiting British Prime Minister David Cameron met world famous Sri Lankan cricketer Muttiah Muralitharan in Colombo.

Spin bowler "Murali" backed the prime minister's decision to travel to Sri Lanka but said he had been misled about the situation in the country.

Murali told journalists: "He must have been misled by other people. People speak without going and seeing the things there. I go on and off. I see from my eyes there is improvement.

"I can't say the prime minister is wrong or not. He hasn't seen the site, he hasn't gone and visited these places - yesterday only."

Cameron toured former war-zone Jaffna and held talks with Tamil politicians, including Northern Province Chief Minister and civilians there.

After the meeting, Cameron and Murali played cricket with young cricketers.
