On the subject of reverse swing, wont it be useful to make the laws regarding ball tampering a bit lax, which make the disparity between ball and bat a little less, especially on the docile subcontinent pitches.
Acutally I kinda realize this is a stupid suggestion, but still would be interested to hear a few arguments opposing it.
BTW, relaxing the ball tampering law could mean, bowlers can use glycerine (Im dont remember the name of an aussie who in the 70s allegedly used glycerine once, Max Walker maybe or Bob Massie?), or nails (pretending that they are already not used).
As for Reverse swing, Im pretty sure it was Imran who coined the term reverse swing. To legitimize the rather dubious practices used by fast bowlers. Its widespread among Pak cricketers that the process involving making one side of the ball heavier and rougher involves a lot of dubious stuff like scratching with nails, and was made into an art form by Sarfraz. I think 'reverse swing' was Imran's attempt to give it a name and make it sound like something technical.
