    Icon6 Aussie - not Aussie

    well, i was just wondering that....................
    If "Murli" was an Aussie bowler, would be called for "chucking"?
    ................and..........
    If "Brett Lee" was not Aussie would he be not called for "chucking"?


    The angle of bowling arm while delivering the bowl is not very different( almost same) but Brett Lee is not called may be because he is Non-Asain but Murli is called because he is Non-Aussie

    Interesting thread, this one. Pretty sure this topic has never been discussed before.

        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Brett Lee has been called for chucking before I think. And no I can not state that Lee's arm angle is under 15 degrees, nor can I say that Muralitharan's arm angle is under 15 degrees because I do not have the technology to decide that.

    That's just bollocks your talking. James Kirtley's career has been ruined because he's been called as a chucker before. Ian Meckiff is an Aussie whose career was wrecked because he was a chucker.

    Get your facts straight before spouting a load of tired old bull****.

    Heath Davis should have been called for being a pie-chucker. Actually, that reminds me of a story...

    If Murali was an Aussie bowler, he wouldn't have made it to first class level. He would have been labelled a chucker, rightly or wrongly, and either been forced to change his action or simply not been selected in any serious competition. And thus is the reason for it being extremely rare for Australian bowlers to be called for chucking - anything that resembles such is quickly weeded out at lower levels due to culture against it in all levels of Australian cricket.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Brett Lee was called for chucking before just once but hasn't improved his "chucking" but still he is a Star but Murli has been called many times.

    Muralitharan is a star as well, so I don't see what the problem is. Muralitharan has been called many times but that is because there is more controversy over his action than anyone elses in world cricket, not because he is Sri Lankan.

    Does it really matter how many times Murali has been called? He hasn't been called for ages now and has like a trillion wickets, who cares.
