Mithali Raj, the former captain of India's women's national cricket team, has named Muttiah Muralitharan as the greatest ODI spinner.

Muttiah Muralitharan, a former Sri Lankan right-arm off-break spinner, has an impressive record of 534 wickets in his ODI career, making him the top choice for Mithali Raj

Muralitharan also holds the record for the most ODI wickets in a career, solidifying his reputation as a legendary spinner

In contrast to Mithali Raj's choice, other cricket experts like Sanjay Manjrekar and Piyush Chawla believe that Shane Warne deserves the title of the greatest ODI spinner

Shane Warne, a legendary right-arm leg-spin bowler, has taken 293 wickets in his ODI career and ranks 15th in the list of most ODI wickets.

Mithali Raj is not only a former Indian captain but also holds the record for the most runs scored in ODI cricket, with an impressive 7805 runs

Throughout her career, Mithali played 232 ODI matches, which included 7 centuries and 64 half-centuries. Her highest individual score stands at 125 runs (not out).

In 2017, Mithali Raj led the Indian women's cricket team to the finals of the ICC Women's World Cup, where they faced England and narrowly lost by 9 runs.

 Mithali's contribution to Indian women's cricket and her remarkable batting records make her one of the sport's iconic figures.
