SRI Lankan spin great Muthiah Muralidaran is optimistic his countryman Rangana Herath, the leading Test wicket-taker in 2012, will be influential in the looming Australia-Sri Lanka Test series.

Left-arm finger-spinner Herath has taken 55 wickets from eight Tests this year, at an average of 20.95.

Second-placed Graham Swann's 53 wickets have come from four additional Tests.

Muralidaran, whose Big Bash League stint for Melbourne Renegades will overlap the entire three-match Test series, said if pitch conditions in Hobart, Melbourne and Sydney were in Herath's favour the veteran would exploit them.
