    I think amongst the offies, only the subcontinental guys try the doosra and it is obvious that to bowl the doosra, there must be some flexion... The point is whether it is within the allowed limit. I think Akhtar and Lee and anyone who bowls at their pace will probably have a bit of flexion as well... I don't think it has anything to do with racial bias or with variety in bowling. It is just that there are no other really good offies around the world and the ones that are around cannot bowl the doosra. Only the subcontinental guys do that, and since they do flex their elbows, their actions are always suspect, as the degrees cannot be worked out by the naked eye.

    Its plain obvious that Saqlain, Harbhajan, Murali, Malik etc arent from the sub continent.

    As some of the distinguished members of the forum (scaly piscine, scally etc) have proven conclusively on many occasions, the ICC is clearly biased in favour of the sub continent. And because these respected members are never wrong, it clearly follows that the bowlers mentioned before must have non sub continental roots, and are being punished for their impure non subcontinental lineage.

    That conclusion could only be made by someone with sub-continent bias.

    I hereby appoint you as Chairman of the ICC.

    No, meaning that it isn't under suspicion. You can still be guilty even if you're not suspected of it. McGrath and others are as guilty as Murali and co.

    Only difference being is Murali chucks and McGrath bowls, other than that they are the same.

    According to the ICC, Both Chuck, Sarwan probably is the only one among current bowlers who doesn't chuck.

    To Quote Angus Fraser :-

    "...The committee found that many much-admired current bowlers are "chuckers", that is bowling deliveries that are illegal under existing rules, these include Glenn McGrath, Shaun Pollock, Stephen Harmison and Allan Donald.... "

    they both chuck mate. they may not have the same degree of flex, but they both chuck (includeing 99% other bowlers).

    He is annoyed at the delay by the ICC in constituting the panel which will evaluate him, thus denying him the chance of signing a contract with a county. The rules spoke of 21 days for the panel to be put in place from the date of the bowler being called. IIRC, its been more than a month.
