Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion
- As featured in The Independent.
"The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
- Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change
McGrath is either medium or medium fast now, Vaas is defiently medium and Pollock is medium or medium fast in my books. Kallis is fast, he got 150kph yesterday.
I'd still classify Kallis as a fast medium, because most of the time he bowls at a slower pace and relies on swing to get him his wickets.
Still a selfish batsman tho.
the pakistani guy whos a bit like Farveez, cant remember his name
Where's my money?

Even Bicknell was still occasionally hitting 77-78mph in 2003.
Mostly, bowling at out-and-out medium-pace (which I'd define as 65-75, loosely anyway) just doesn't cut the mustard in Tests.
You need to be medium-fast or fast-medium to get the job done. Otherwise the batsmen just have too much time. Except, maybe, on a WACA wicket.
