Two of the legendary spinners, Muttiah Muralitharan of Sri Lanka and Greame Swann from England who have done wonders for their sides face each other in this interesting challenge called “The 50p Challenge”. Before I move on to tell you who actually triumphed, let me describe the challenge to you all.
There is a glass placed on the top of the off stump on the edge of which a 50p coin is balanced. Both bowlers have to hit the coin by bowling their natural deliveries without actually disturbing the rest of the setup and the first one to do so is the winner.
Will it be Muralitharan who has 800 test and 534 ODI wickets or Swann who has 255 test and 104 ODI wickets? Is it going to be the one who has taken spin bowling to another level or one of the best bowlers of England?
As it turns out, Muralitharan wins the challenge as would have been expected by many. Swann rightly says in the end “STILL THE MASTER” as Muralitharan shows why he is considered the best spinner of all time. See the video below to see how he does it.
