    True buy I believe Symcox had a cup of urine and a chicken thrown at him. Now that is bad.

    Yeah, exactly what I was thinking.

    By "not going here", I meant Murali's comments, not whether or not he should have come to Australia, Craig. Pretty much for the reason above.

    Many people (including many in Australia) have said that Murali should ignore the crowds, concentrate on winning games, and attempt to win over the crowds through his performances. While I'm not entirely sure that this would work, I think the key point was to turn a negative into a positive by ignoring the crowds, rather than responding (or effectively goading them, as in this instance), particularly seeing as he's shown that he's in fact fairly sensitive to the abuse. I guess his comments were maybe geared towards a more partisan audience, but he probably should have known better.

    Regardless, he is by far, the best spin bowler in the world today and his continuous overshadowing of Warne in almost every bowling department, despite having a far less assured batting lineup and an insignificant amount of support cannot be just justified as playing on turners at home. If that is so, i think comparing McGrath with Sreenath is in order given that your 'pitch excuse' and total ignorance of bowling strength,batting strength,etc. fits in identically with this situation.

    Murali is definitely the best IMO, but I don't agree with the 'by far' bit.

    Yes, 'The Little Master' has had his measure to date in India

    Tbf though Warne did have a useless shoulder on one of his Indian tours
