Andrew Flintoff a chucker?

Sydney Morning Herald writer Peter Roebuck has called into question Andrew Flintoff’s bowling action following the conclusion of the second test between England and Bangladesh.

Peter Roebuck wrote in his Sydney Morning Herald column that Flintoff’s bowling spell in the first test at Lord’s “contained some of the most blatant transgressions of the law covering legitimate actions seen in respectable company this year”.

Roebuck went on to write “Flintoff’s action seems to deteriorate when he searches for an extra yard of pace and especially when he moves around the wicket and starts to pound the middle of the pitch. Then his naturally open-chested style betrays him.”

The matter has not been raised by the match umpires DJ Harper and AL Hill or match referee AG Hurst while Bangladesh coach Dav Whatmore said he had “no complaints” with Flintoff’s action.
