    Warne v Murlie

    The two spinners:
    S K Warne and that Javlin Thrower

    Who will beat Walsh first?

    It is said that they will both pass Walsh as leading wicket taker in the 1st Test of the next Sri Lanka v Australia series.

    SO WHO WILL WIN? :I

    It's would be a lot easier for Murali to pass Walsh first when he bowls the bulk of the overs in any Sri Lankan innings.

    See, before Vaas decided to step up to the plate, Murali was the only decent bowler in the attack so he got lots of bowling. Warne has NEVER been in an Aussie attack where there wasn't at least two other world-class bowlers in the lineup so he gets less bowling.

    Murali may be a very good bowler but when the majority of his wickets have come from wrecking teams like Zimbabwe, New Zealand (when they weren't doing so well) and England, well I shall suspend my calling him one of the great off-spinners of all time. Warnie has done his thing against all-comers (except India).

    So I will say Warnie is the superior spinner in all conditions, pitches and against different teams.

    Personally I think Murali will get there first. This is because Steve Waugh tries to put bowlers into the attack who haven't taken any wickets to put a smile back on their face. On the other hand, Murali is Sri Lanka's main strike bowler so they will use him as much as possible.

    Rhis is what I think anyway.

    At the rate that Murali is going he will be at 600 before Warne passes Walsh's tally. Not bad for a javelin thrower.

    Erm, I think you meant declared legal...

    I reckon Murali will get there first as he bowls more frequently than Warne

    The only reason that Muli is allowed to bowl is that the Sri Lankan team will be so upset at their only bowler being taken off they will walk off the ground.

    IT HAS HAPPENED!

    Warney!

    Roughly, how many wickets do you think Murali will take in his Test career?

    I think he'll take about 650 wickets if he doesn't get badly injured.

    I don't are what you say but here is my points.

    1. Warne will beat Murlie to Walshes record.
    2. Murlie should beat Warne at the end of their carrers.
    3. Murlie is a chucker.
    4. Murlie is a chucker.
    5. Murlie is a chucker.
    6. Sri Lankan cricket has been dragged through the mud by the walk off in Austraia. And it should of been after that kind of effort.

    Rangatunga shoud not of had hisen walk off when Murlie was called for chucking, he held the game of Cricket in contempt because of his belief that his, and not the umpires, word was law.

    In the past ten years I can ony think of two bigger disgracs:

    3. Sri Lanka walk off
    2. Cronje scandle
    1. Englands effort in the recent Ashes series.

    SO MURLIE IS ONLY NOT CALLED A CHUCKER BECAUSE THE UMPIRES ARE SCARED TO.

    Thankyou. :lipsrsealed:

    Muralitharan is not called for chucking because his action is legal!

    It has been checked many times and proved legal many times!


    How come you aren't so up-in-arms about Brett Lee's action? Or Shoaib? Or James Kirtley?
