    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Indeed so, yes. Nigel Blackwell of the immortal Half Man Half Biscuit (who once famously declined to play on The Tube because Rovers were at home) is responsible for ****in' 'Ell, It's Fred Titmus, about the joy of bumping into the reduced-toed Middlesex offie in the supermarket, the local park & the train station. YouTube.

    Also penned a tune called Hedley Verityesque, so he's obviously something of a cricket man.

    Piers Morgan shouldn't be allowed to communicate full stop.
    Pradeep Magazine - I really hate this guy
    Mark Nicholas
    Harsha Bhogle - I quote the great man, "who would have thought that there would be a place for the big fast bowler who takes wickets in T20?" no sarcasm, I kid you not
    John Woodcock
    Simon Barnes
    Michael Slater (the lesser Australian Mark Nicholas)
    Peter Roebuck - unless he proves he can write an article without mentioning how amazed he is by multiculturalism

    Why shouldn't two of the greatest cricket writers this country has ever seen (Simon Barnes and John Woodcock) be allowed to write?

    In Barnes' case for being an associate of Phil Edmonds - anyone see that disturbing Dispatches programme last night about Phillipe Henri's links with Mugabe?

    Sorry but I seem to be in full-on disagree-with-oitoitoi mode today.

    Simon Barnes is always worth reading even though on occasion he needs to be read with a wry smile.

    I really cannot stand Mark Nicholas as a commentator but he is much less irritating as a writer.

    On a serious note, Malcom Conn. Truly deplorable.

    On an even more serious note. What has this thread got to do with the 2009 Ashes?

    Can only presume Piers Morgan wrote one of the most idiotic pieces Gelman has ever read - on the subject of the 2009 Ashes.

    Was my first reaction anyway.
