    Does Chaminda Vaas chuck?

    What disturbs me are a number of media articles citing Vaas as having a "suspect" action. I'd never heard such claims until Robert Craddock named Vaas in a 7 man chuck hit list last month. The following day, the ICC denied such a list. It sounds a bit weird that a guy bowling at 120km/hr is going to chuck. So please give me your honest opinions - does he chuck or not?

    It is possible to bowl at 120 km's and have a suspect action. Just take a look at Kyle Mills, although he hasn't been pulled up by the ICC thus far.

    if you bowl around 120 it doesnt mean that you dont chuck. i have seen vaas bowling few time's and i have also seen him bending his elbow to far.if you think bowlers chuck because they want more pace then you are wrong. i saw once vaas chucking and he swing the ball in to saeed anwar and bowled him that suggests to me that bowlers chuck because they want the ball nipped back.

    Maybe your best post. Actually definetly. This is a good point, but I still don't think Vaas chucks. If someone can come up with pictures suggesting otherwise, I might change my mind.

    He chucked as much as the next bowler, provided that next bowler wasn't Sarawan.

    an unsbustantiated claim, considering that ICC said ALL bowlers except sarwan to take part in the ICC champions trophy flex their elbows above allowable limits.
    That includes McGrath,Gillespie, Pollock,ntini,harmison,Flintoff,Bradshaw,Kumble,Pa than,Vaas etc etc etc.

    A chuck is a chuck, the degree of flexibility doesn't matter. If you cross the allowed limit, you chuck. If you don't then you don't.
