    Not overly impressed with him as a bowler. I don't see him being a whole lot more effective than Nicky Boje, if at all more so.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? 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."

    Good to see, although I have serious misgivings about his action and don't really rate him as a bowler at least we aren't being discriminated against when it comes to chucking..

    Good for South African cricket, he can be given a go at international level and if he fails then he just gets chucked in the heap with all the rest of South Africa's useless spinners. But I do hope he does well.

    Horrible, horrible action.

    Sweepstake on the number of international games before he's reported again? I'll take 2.

    - 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

    Tbh, I reckon if he does get back in the side he'll just get reported and suspended and we'll just go through the same process again.

    Considering how dodgy his action was before he got reported, this can only be good news for one Shabbir Ahmed.

    Ehh..I don't think he is all that good of a bowler. But he's an off spinner and he already chucks. So it shouldn't be too hard to pick up the doosra, which would really make him effective.

    Then why is Brett Lee not banned despite his action reported to ICC twice by Indian umpire Venkatraghvan.If a white umpire had reported an asian's action,then that poor asian guy would've been immediately banned.Botha was banned because they knew he's useless.So,he was used as a sacrificial lamb just to prove that ICC is not a racist sporting body(which we know it is).

    Agree with Gelman.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    I haven't posted enough on the forum to know that what type of person BhupinderSingh is but I think everyone has the right to put his opinion before others on these boards,so does BhupinderSingh.If u don't like his posts,doesn't mean he should be banned.
