    Was Murali...

    Considering that today's match didnt count towards player stats, do you think Murali was a bit generous to Fleming, knowing full well that every 4 and 6 hit would earn money for the Sri Lankan victims of the tsunami?

    He didn't look to be bowling any differently to usual. From what I saw, Stephen Fleming was just very, very good.

    Yep, he just got belted. He didn't bowl particularly well, mind you, but there is no way it was on purpose.

    Omg Nibbs, two out of three Aussies said that Murali wasn't giving it away and then you jump all over us.

    It's a long way from that. It was a charity match, not the World Cup final.

    Why? Did you watch the game? The pitch wasn't giving him a lot of assistance, and it's a small ground and Fleming was playing well. He was off a little bit in his length and gave Fleming some nice half-volleys to hit, but nothing particularly shocking. Murali isn't god, and he can go for runs if someone is playing well.

    Anyway, I would have to wonder how you think a bowler like Murali would bowl if he wanted to go for 20 an over and get no wickets... it's not like he was throwing up full tosses.

    Your no Gary, but your comment was Gary-like.

    Anyway, I dont think there is any chance that Murali would do that. He has too much self respect.

    Also, even if he DID decide to do it, why wouldnt he have done it in the other charity match?
