    Not often I say this but...

    I was wrong. Murali doesn't chuck the ball. I've seen him on tv many many times and I thought he threw the ball. However having sat side on to where he was bowling yesterday I have to say that TV makes it look much worse than it actually was.

    Murali, I apologise.

    You must have been sitting on the field and with some sort of slow motion vision to be able make such a judgement.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Nope, its just that it looks much much worse on TV. And now that I have seen it with the naked eye, he doesn't chuck it.

    You saw it with the eye from how many ever metres back in the stand and in full motion! It's hardly anything for you to make a proclamation on.

    indeed mate, you may be right. but surely seeing his action from that point-of-view is not the best way to judge such a thing?

    Twas a joke Warne is God,

    Good to see you dont drink and good to see you only ever judged Murali on his action which is important because most people dont believe that Australians only call Murali a chucker because they believe he throws .

    All sorts of other reasons are given for why Aussies call Murali a chucker but when your belief that he chucks disappeared you had no other reason to question his abilities.

    Good to see you form your own opinion mate. And since I have not said it already, I say this now: Congrats Australia, you guys rock! The way the whole benefit game was organised and run, you guys showed that even if we at the subcontinent may form the heart of the game, you are still the brain. And of course, neither can function independently. I was especially pleased by how kind the crowd was to Murali. The match shall always stay in my memory for that reason alone.........and for McGrath coming in before Hayden.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.
