I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Good decision by the staff to allow discussion to occur, even if it is tedious. Freedom of discussion is nice.

    Anyway, to start off this thread:

    Nicky Boje > Warne & Murali

    That's right

    It will be interesting to see how long this will last, personally i don't think it will be long before spamming takes over. Hopefully this turns into more of a tribute thread, rather then one full of heated discussions.

    Does this mean we'll only have to see AMZ and his notepad file in one thread?

    I rate Murali slightly ahead of Warne. On current form though, Warne is well ahead. But Murali has age on his side, and it will be interesting how they end up at the end of their careers. But anyone who says one is significantly better than the other must have seen very little of one or both of them.

    I rate Warne slightly ahead, because I believe he is a more dangerous bowler on pitches which do not assist spin bowling. Similar to why I rate McGrath slightly ahead of Ambrose. Ambrose was the more destructive bowler on green tops, but at times was forced into simply being economical and unpenetrative on flat pitches (which is hardly a crime!), while McGrath seems to excel in the most difficult of conditions, and still show an ability to tear teams apart when conditions go in his favour. Parallel for me to Warne and Murali, and indeed the Lara and Tendulkar debate as well.

    Both, obviously, all-time greats.

    I have always rated Murali higher (inspite of my reservations on the legality or otherwise of the doosra) but I must admit that Warne in the last year or so has been bowling like a dream. If I have to compare as of this point in time, I would vote for Warne.
