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
Yeah, very silly indeed.
"It was an easy decision to sign. I could have gone elsewhere, I had calls, but it never entered my mind it's not about the money."
RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.
Yeah not great is it.
Stopped right outside a police station as well which is kind of amusing
I really don't care what cricketers do in their spare time (apart from certain things), but it is all about the sponsors these days so he may be in deep trouble.
Lets hope it does not go the way of Symonds and costs him his place in the Ashes squad, would be a shame, and we Aussies don't want England having an excuse for why they were thrashed this time
You know it makes sense.
At least he did not run over a person
Diuretics are used to look good at TV shows
I played for 20 years in the Lankan team, I did not have any problems as a Tamil - Muralidaran
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.
Why in the article does it read 'Swann arrested on suspicion of drink-driving'. Don't they get the blood sample result pretty much immediately as to be able categorically state whether or not his alcohol levels did exceed the limit or not?
On the assumption that he has been bailed to return to the nick at a later date (I'm assuming that if he'd been charged and bailed to go to court that would have been said in terms) then that's almost certainly because the evidential specimen is blood and needs to be analysed - there are a whole raft of reasons why that might be but by far the most likely is that he blew between 35 and 50 on the intoximeter (legal limit is 35) in which case he has the right (as do we all - not just Swanneh - he ain't that special) to elect for blood rather than breath - so hopefully, depending on your perspective of course, the Doc would have meandered slowly down to the station to give Swanneh a chance to drop a few precious points and get out of the brown stuff
Plenty of people who are not professional cricketers do it and no one gives a damn. Why the preferrential treatment?
What preferential treatment?
Damn was gonna think that he was sensible and all, shame.

I know its part of fame but seriously, they have their lives to live as well, let them live their private lives in peace.
Bollox, the bloke has traded off a good-bloke image, now he's been found guilty of a fairly crap crime, which could lead to deaths.
Can't believe people on this thread dismissing it an harmless indiscretion, like wot happened in the good ole days. Its reprehensible, IMHO
