    He's always been a better Test bowler than ODI, and yet he's still managed to play 194 ODIs - not exactly a career to look back on with shame.

    The 2 greatest spiners in any form of the game are Warne and Murali.

    I, personally, cant stand either of them as they should both have been banned for life (Warne for gambling/drugs and Murali for chucking) but as they both still play, dont talk down their talent.

    Despite that Murali has been proven not to chuck
    Saqlain and Harbhajan are both better ODI bowlers than Warne.
    Good Test bowler does not neccesarily = good ODI bowler; equally exceptional Test bowler doesn't neccessarily = exceptional ODI bowler.
    In Murali's case, it does - in Warne's, it doesn't.
    Warne was nothing other than pretty good in ODIs.

    I hate Warne with a passion and believe his abilities have been blown far out of proportion by an ill-informed, biased, over patriotic media. Even I, however, would admit that he is clearly a much better bowler than the Indian, who struggles outside of the subcontinent. If Harbhajan Singh was English he would have been called Harbour John Smith and had far less success.

    Err... eh?
    In Asia Harbhajan has an economy-rate of 4.25-an-over; outside Asia it's 3.87-an-over. It's actually worst of all at home (4.6-an-over) - mainly due to two dire series against Australia (2000\01) and West Indies (2002\03).
    Harbhajan most certainly is not a familiar-track bully.

    Yes you are right, one should never underestimate Harbour John Smith and the Aussie junkie is a very average ODI bowler indeed. Even the almighty Greg Chappell has more 5 wicket hauls in ODIs.

    What the devil have five-wicket-hauls got to do with anything?
