Legendary Pakistan batsman Younis Khan has chosen Muttiah Muralitharan as the best spinner he ever played against in his illustrious career.
Younis admitted that he relished going up against Sri Lanka back in the day as he would be able to put his skills to the test against Muralitharan.
While he conceded that it was difficult to keep Muralitharan at bay, he pointed out that he always enjoyed the challenge.
“I always enjoyed the challenge whenever I played against Sri Lankan great Muttiah Muralitharan,” he was quoted as saying by PakPassion. “He was an amazing bowler and I know a lot of people rate Shane Warne very highly but from the spinners I played against Muttiah Muralitharan was the best.
“I had some very good performances against Murali including the triple hundred when he was in the Sri Lankan bowling line-up and it was always a huge challenge facing him, but one that I cherished.”
