I think muthaiyya muraleetharan is the greatest spinner in the world.As copared to shane warne he takes more wickets from less matches and takes more 5 wickets and 10 wickets than warne.Muralis action have some problem but it is accepted by icc.

I personally can't differentiate between the greatness of both Shane Warne and Muttiah Muralitharan. Both are legendary spinners serving for their nation in particular and cricket in general. They both are class acts.. Although statics do prove Muttiah Muralitharan as the world's greatest spin bowler ever, even I should say greatest bowler ever (not only spinner). But these statics do not reveal the entire story. They will not tell on which veneues, on which surfaces and against whom these wickets were taken? were these normal delievers or unplayable ones?? Further, acoording to my cricketing sense, leg spin is too hard to control as compared to off spin... Nevertheless, for me both Muttiah Muralitharan and Shane Warne will always be at the top of the great spinners ever produced...
