    I thought Sreesanth wore those sports skins under a short sleeved shirt.

    Effective to mask the occasional chuck. But it's a bad tactic.

    Sree wears skins, its different to Shoaib wearing long sleeves.

    After watching Harbhajan again recently, i'm still surprised how he gets away with it! It seems to be becoming more and more popular too, surely something needs to be done?

    Yeah..couple of spinners nowadays have slightly suspect actions. Botha would be one of them, maybe ojha too but not as much. Can't decide with harbhajan though, he looks decent now but his hat trick video caught the attention of a lot of people with his action.

    A pace bowler who I think chucks was Kyle Mills (not that anyone cares about him)

    Always had a problem with bowlers, wearing full sleeve shirts, as they definitely help mask that occasional chuck.
    So unless there's an obvious change in action, its pretty hard to catch it on camera, or through naked eye.

    Ojha's normal delivery is just fine and classical. But there isa certain delivery where he tries to spin more. At that point of time it looks ugly.

    I would agree that the long sleeve would hide the occasional chuck but if a bowler is a real chucker with most of his deliveries being chucked he would be found out pretty soon. And in any case. The new 15 degree room is quite accommodating really.

    Still bowls the toppy though which he uses a similar action for.

    awta. 15 degrees is a pretty large allowance. Too large imo but oh well.

    Wasn't that allowance brought in because it was found that going by the old rules, some riduculously large percentage of bowlers were chuckers? (~90%?)

    No idea, but according to every damn youtube video comment featuring Murali, they changed the rules to accomodate his action
