    Still waiting for an explanation on Warne's bowling style, tbh.

    So what bowler is Warne again?

    indians loved to play warne anywhere anytime. and they hated facing murali anywhere anytime in any form of the game.

    ps: i am a warne fan by the way and i am not too comfortable with murali's bowling action. still i dont like it when people twist stats and make it look like one is better than the other, especially when murali comes on top in every angle and they still run him down.

    as for the thread's main point i love the fact that CMJ has rated murali at 13. it is a fantastic honor for a fantastic champion. how come a kumble doesnt deserve a spot in top 100 but martin donnely (whoever it is) gets in, that too ahead of rahul dravid, is beyond me, though.

    Hmmm, don't know if the Indians "hated" facing Murali, he still hasn't got the greatest record against them. Still much better than Warne's, obviously.

    Warne's record against India in Australia isn't as bad as Murali's record against Australia in Australia. I say that, because it was probably as equally difficult for Murali to bowl to Australia in Australia as what it was for Warne to bowl to India in Australia. Warne faced India in Australia on debut aswell, which wouldn't of helped his cause.

    But Australia was where Warne learnt his tricks. So he is expected to do well. This comparison is one of the worst I have ever seen.

    You compare Warne at home against India vs Murali away vs Australia. Nice logic.

    And that is one of the most illogical responses that I have ever seen. It's nothing worse then comparing Warne & Murali in the subcontient against India & Pakistan, despite the fact that Murali learnt his tricks in Sri Lanka (which is in the subcontient), which is what I was responding to.

    Please can Murali v Warne bickerings be kept to the relevant thread? If I read another post on this most tedious of topics I will be tempted to take my own eyes out with a rusty power drill just to ease the boredom.

    Ben is not a total idiot, tbf, just been dragged into a few unfortunate debates.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.
