    I don't know if it was deliberate or not but if he wanted to deny Sehwag a century, why would he bowl the two previous balls the way he did? The two previous balls were fine.

    The four byes wouldn't have been deliberate. But after that with only one run required the thought of denying the century would have occurred.

    Haha, look I dislike what Sanga did, but it wasn't worse than what Sehwag did vs South Africa.

    Cheating to win isn't less bad than not-cheating, but doing something to be a prick.

    Sehwag deliberately broke a rule. Sanga just did something dickish.

    Both wrong.

    Funnily though, I'd probably more likely do what Sehwag did than Sanga. But that would be knowing that one actually served a purpose for my team.

    Sehwag has spoken out in the press conference. Must have been pissed after seeing the replay of how much Randiv overstepped.

    Just seen the article on Cricinfo.

    Kumar Sangakkara denied playing any role in the incident. "I hope it was not deliberate," he said. "That's not the way I would like to play cricket. If that was intentional, and I have to find out about that, it has got no place on the field of cricket. I will also have to see if there was any talk about it on the field prior to that delivery."

    Sangakkara also defended Randiv, saying the offspinner was not the sort of person to bowl a deliberate no-ball. "Knowing Suraj, he is a really nice guy. I have no doubt that it was not intentional. Maybe he was trying to bowl the doosra, and maybe get some bounce off it. But if there has been some talk about it on the field before the start of that delivery by other players, or maybe a bit of coaxing, I will have to address that very, very strongly in the dressing room."

    Sehwag said he was not aware of the rule that stipulated the match was over once the no-ball was bowled, though it counts as a delivery faced. Sangakkara also appeared bemused by the rule, saying it had robbed Sehwag of a century. "I think if a batsman scores the runs, he scores the runs, whether it is a no-ball or not. I think if he scores runs off it, it should count for the batsman. The way Viru batted, he deserved to get a hundred."


    That's enough for me. I don't think Sanga will blatantly lie twice.

    I'm a Sanga man again

    Exactly. If they wanted to give him his hundred they would have positioned the field to allow him an easy single.

    But that just doesn't happen anymore. They still had every right to try and get him out before the end of the game.

    EDIT: Read the article, and Sehwag looks a lot worse than Sanga. His frustration is understandable, but you can't definitively say it was deliberate.

    How was a deliberate no ball going to achieve that, short of a run out?

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    If it was deliberate.

    How big was this overstep? One metre, two? Or something like an inch?

    One foot, I'd guess.

    Which is huge for an offspinner.

    Ah, so right on the sweet spot for suspicion but not enough for confirmation...

    Bowlers have the howler overstep all the time, and I understand he bowled four legitimate dot balls previous to Sehwag?

    I'm going to give the benefit of the doubt. It's dodge, but not enough for me.

    But yeah. 4 dot balls when he was on 99* I think, of which 2 or 3 the scores were level for.
