    Chucking inquiries are a farce

    With Jermaine Lawson being the latest "bowler" to have his action cleared by the ICC and bowlers like Harbijhan becoming more "Murali-like" everyday, it is painfully obvious that inquiries into actions are a complete waste of time as tolerance limits are obviously so broad that anything goes under the new laws.

    I say that unless bowlers simply stand and pitch a la baseball, then we should forget about scrutinising their actions and let the free-for-all continue without the attached controversies that inevitably surround meaningless inquiries.

    What an intelligent argument you make.

    Presumably this topic will descend into the usual...

    Shampoo is better. I go on first and clean the hair.
    Conditioner is better. I leave the hair silky and smooth.

    Im actually being serious.

    If guys like Lawson, Kirtley, etc etc etc etc dont contravene the new limits, then it's highly unlikely that anyone will.

    Simply say "close enough is good enough" and spare us the glorified PR process that an inquiry represents.

    Besides, what's the penalty for an illegal delivery anyway? Nothing, nada, zippo, a big fat goose egg.

    The umpire cant call it in a match so therefore the batting team doesnt get the benefit of runs from no-balls and the bowler can still pick up wickets without fear of being labelled a chucker.
