    Murali: love or hate

    What does everyone think about Murali, do you like him or hate him. Personally, I think he is the best spinner around at the minute, followed by Kumble and Kaneria

    Well look... I have never really liked Murali. Mostly because I thought he was a chucker. *ahem* But I tell you, after seeing those pictures of him in Sri Lanka, and hearing him speak about it all, I just CANT help but like him. I shouldnt call myself an Australian.

    Murali's earlier record vs India was horrible. He improved only near 1999 and averaged more than 35 before 1996 atleast.

    So a lot of Murali I watched was totally average bowling and good batting vs him. So I never became a fan of Murali's. Suddenl though he became huge wicket tacker from around 1999 taking 5 wickets a match consistently. Statistically and skill wise, this guy is a great.

    But from a personal view I do not like him.

    Never impressed by him early on as explained. And some times either you like a player or you dont. We all tend to have likes and dislikes. Not much a fan of his bowling.
