    who is the english player most likely to scratch the ball

    "He knows that one individual is scratching the ball for England -- who I am not going to name -- and that's why the ball was changed," insisted Willis, one of England's greatest fast bowlers.

    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Just goes to show how na´ve England are if they are caught out breaking the rules and the effect is to take them from an extremely strong position to what turned into a bit of a hiding - I expect the Aussies will be hiding all the nail clippers for the rest of the summer

    If they have done it I hope the person responsible for ball tampering is banned from the ashes.

    I heard the same...

    Don't care who it is they need banning. We can't get on a high horse over other nations being caught out and then sweep it under the carpet when/if we have done it.

    Lots of criticism of Willis' comments in the media BUT why would an Englishman, working for an English company, accuse an Englishman of cheating in a match played in England and being broadcast to millions of Englishmen?

    He either has a death wish or is 100% correct

    Having said that, my personal opinion is that EVERY team tampers with the ball, few get caught and fewer still are skilled enough to take advantage of the tampering

    Whatever the case, I'm just glad that this negative headline doesn't involve an Australian

    Surely with all the cameras around the ground we could actually see some evidence before making a judgement on this?
