Murali was accused of throwing the ball but because of the fact that he has a double jointed wrist he proved the critics wrong!
Murali has the record of 800 Test wickets whereas Warney has just over 700 Test wickets! Both brilliant bowlers but who would you choose to be the best ever spinner?
Murali by a country mile~
Not only his TEST record ,even in ODIs
Don`t forget Murali has 530 ODI wkts too (Compared to Warne`s 290)
WISDEN too named Murali as the greatest ever..
& WISDEN never said Warne is better than Murali..
True that once they picked Warne over Murali & Sachin but it was in yr 2000 !
Murali & Sachin achieved a lot after that..
Not only WISDEN ,even cricinfo website & past cricketers like Viv Richards,Garfield Sobers,V.Sehwag,Rahul Dravid,Arjuna,Tony & even Aussies like Steve Waugh has said Murali is the best ever
Stats too prove that..
When you compoare the two,
Murali have a more wkts(in less matches !)better bowling avrg,economy rate,more 5 wit hauls,more 10 wkt hauls,better best bowling performance in both forms of cricket.
But some Aussies say Murali has taken his wkts against Zim & Bangla
now that too is a lie
Even if you compare the stats against top 8 teams only,
Still Murali has a better bowling avrg,economy rate,more 5 wit hauls,more 10 wkt hauls,better best bowling performance in both forms of cricket !!!
+Warne played most of his matches against Eng & WI but Murali played most of his matches against IND & Pak who play the spinners better than any other team.
Also Warne had the luxury of having great bowlers like Mcgrath,Gillepse& Lee at the other end.
Normally they get rid of the top order & Warne has to bow to the later middle or low order batsmen.
SO you expect him to have at least a better average if he is that good.BUT Still Murali has the better bowling average !
So there is NO ARGUMENT…Murali is the GREATEST EVER ~
