Two bowlers, ten magical fingers and countless mesmerizing spells. One grew up in a country where spin bowling was a dying art, and yet went on to redefine leg-spin bowling. The other, despite inheriting a long history of average bowlers, singlehandedly made his country’s bowling attack a force to reckon with. Between the two of them, Shane Warne and Muttiah Muralitharan have scalped 2335 wickets in Tests and ODIs combined, a record most budding cricketers can only dream of catching up with. At their peak, both had the ability to bring legends to their knees, and make star batsmen look like fools. We compare the two legendary cricketers who took spin bowling to the next level.
