    Should bowling with Sunglass on be banned from Cricket ?

    When a bowler wears sunglass batsman can't see his eyes . If you are a batsman , you can't really see where the bowler is looking at or aiming to bowl . Bowlers get Small Advantage over batsman's Anticipation . In cricket Small Advantages can always be costly . This is totally against the spirit of cricket . You can tell they are wearing it on purpose .

    Indian spinners use this trick . Now English spinners are doing this in Ashes .

    Ashwin and all the other Indian spinners always bowls with Sunglass on -



    Now English bowlers are doing the same in Ashes . Swann -



    Root -



    True Legends don't need sunglasses to trick batsman -

    Really? I'd always just assumed the sunglasses managed to just climb up onto their faces.

    When subcontinental cricketers do it it's cheating.

    When other cricketers do it it's clever tactics.

    If you're looking at someone's eyes when they're bowling you shouldn't be playing international cricket anyways

    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    Its hardly something Swann copied off the Indians since he's been doing it since their spinners were still in School.
