    Did Gul have a Reputation of it ? Not really but after this incident he does. Another Pakistani accused of Ball tampering. Actually it tells the sorry state of Pakistan Cricket that no one is willing to stand up and and when they do speak up they make a mess like Oval Test.
    I actually think this will help get rid of that reputation, since it seems clear that nothing was wrong. It shows me that Pakistan doesn't take part in things like this.

    And I still don't think it is an accusation, he never said, 'I believe he tampered with the ball. He asked the match officals if there was anything wrong with the ball, big deal, I don't see every other fan go off their case when batsmen ask to have the ball checked because it bounces funny, or looks funny. In this case it swung funny and Vettori wanted to know if the ball had anything to do with that.

    Anyway, it over for me, no point arguing with you all anymore.

    Shouldn't you be off accusing someone being racist?

    really funny cuz i guess i belong to same race as does the indians lol
    by the way, this ball tempering stuff, really annoying.
    What's the proof?
    Why kiwi's are shouting that Pakistan cheated when they've no evidence?
    It means i can shout today, if south african batsmen hit long sixers against Pakistani bowlers, i can say they've something in their bats, otherwise no other team has hit that many sixers against our bowling. Rite?
    You can tell how much they are hurting over being knock out in yet again another tournament that they had a decent chance of winning. Their supporters can only come up with lame excuses to appease themselves. Let's see if they can make the final in the world cup in 2011. Hope they don't get knocked out by Sri Lanka again

    But why didn't he ask the match referee whether the shape of the ball was perfectly round because Mendis was "unsually" not getting any turn. Styris thought he was going to turn but his off stump was removed.

    yeah i know newzealand has a bad record at WC big matches against Pakistan & srilanka, whereas Pakistan has a really poor record against India. It doesn't mean India cheats. It means we just panic everytime we play them in worldcup matches or they play better than us

    Because a top spinner doesn't turn maybe?

    And a spinner not getting turn =/= Paceman getting reverse swing after ten overs.
