Not cheating imo. Law is unfair and against bowlers. should be changed. Bowlers should be allowed to rough up one side with specific methods. I.e. using finger nails...
Be VERY AFRIDI!!
Lets bring the golf ball into the equation when the bowler manages to create multiple indentations on one side similar to the ones on it. A couple of scratches are nowhere near the same thing.For example the indentations on a golf ball are present precisely for this purpose.

I only brought up the golf ball to give an idea of the common process that's involved i.e. indentations on the surface aiding transition to turbulence.Lets bring the golf ball into the equation when the bowler manages to create multiple indentations on one side similar to the ones on it.

Love how the spelling of his name randomly changes from "Aamer " to "Amir" halfway through the article.
I suspect the boy probably has been lead astray and, if he co-operates with the investigations I'd advocate leniency. Should serve some kind of ban still tho, however.

Yea but Aamer has to admit what he's done as well. He has to be honest about the whole thing, not come up with crap about how he had no idea about what he was doing and he's completely innocent. That's just ridiculous and means he'll have no credibility if he's back playing international cricket again in a few years.
This is Pakistan's chance to turn over a new leaf to some extent. If they don't I personally don't want them involved in the game as a national team, although I'm sure they will be. The game is bigger than any one country.
You want the ball as dry, and keeping that side as rough as possible. By using your fingernails, which if they're anything over a normal size length can disturb the surface, you can target the parts of the ball that haven't been as roughed up as other parts.

Check out this awesome e-fed:
It's an inexact science. Some days, it won't matter how much work, legal or otherwise, you put into the ball, it won't move off the straight. Other days, it happens naturally without you even thinking about reverse swing.
Teams do it because it gives them the best chance of producing it. It may not always happen, but on the occasions that it does it can have a huge effect on the game.
