Gambhir names the toughest bowler he has ever faced

Not long ago, one of his fans asked him the toughest bowler he has ever faced in his cricketing career. “Who has been the toughest bowler you’ve ever faced”. The question caught the attention of Gambhir as the latter replied, “One and only Muttiah Muralitharan”

Muttiah Muralitharan is widely regarded as one of the greatest spin bowlers in the history of the game. He was an off-spin bowler with a unique and unorthodox bowling action. His ability to generate sharp turn and bounce made him a formidable force in the bowling department.

He holds several cricketing records, with one of the most notable being the highest wicket-taker in Test cricket. He claimed 800 wickets in 133 Test matches, surpassing the previous record held by Shane Warne.

Muralitharan played a crucial role in Sri Lanka’s 1996 Cricket World Cup triumph. His performances throughout the tournament were instrumental in Sri Lanka securing their maiden World Cup title.
