Former Sri Lankan spinner Muttiah Muralitharan was a guest on Jio Cinema recently. The legendary spinner heaped praise on the capabilities that the young Ravi Bishnoi possess. The youngster had the Aussies in trouble in each of the games played in the series.

Muralitharan said “India has always had a good set of spinners from every generation. You see from Anil Kumble to Ravichandran Ashwin to now the young guys who are yet to come. Ravi Bishnoi is different from any other leg-spinner than the other ones.”

The Lankan legend continued, “He bowls quicker and makes the ball slide a lot and Axar also is very accurate. Not a big spinner of the ball and Washington also is similar because he doesn’t turn the ball very much and is accurate”
