    In an exclusive interview Here.

    Seems like Pakistani cricketers have problems keeping their mouth shut, give proof or GTFO.

    erghhh.. can one of the mods sort the thread title.

    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    I think Cook is our polisher designate, so if anything untoward was happening he'd be the natural suspect.

    - 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

    Heh.

    Based on absolutely nothing whatsoever, given that Gul must have seen it happening on TV. The Stuart Broad bit is particularly amusing. That's as bollocks now as it was at the time.

    Personally, I think you should get away with whatever you can get away with, considering that using a tampered ball is one hell of a skill to get right. Umar should know.
    And we still haven't walked in the glow of each other's majestic presence.

    I wouldn't be shocked if >50% of bowlers do it. Obviously as a spectator I have nfi, but I wouldn't be surprised at all.

    Anderson - Ball Tampering? - YouTube

    And by the way, Umar Gul was not saying it as an accusation, he said it in a different context.

    Umar Gul on whether Shoaib Akhtar's claims adversely affect Pakistani cricket
    "Quite a few bowlers are still doing it – during our series against England last year I saw [James] Anderson was doing it. Against Australia, when they [England] won the Ashes, everyone saw Broad use his shoe to scratch the ball. Every bowler does it. In my opinion, Shoaib bhai may also have done it – of course if he says so then he would have done it, but there are many methods of ball tampering. One is the illegal method, where it's done with the nail or something else, that's illegal. Nowadays, however many players throw the ball from the boundary onto the squares which are dry, the ball can be scratched by this, and in my opinion this has been made legal."

    Umar Gul and his views on the legalisation of ball-tampering
    "No, we shouldn't legalise it. Cricket is it's own fun, and whatever advances are being made in cricket are eroding the enjoyment. Like the two balls in one-day cricket. I think if they leave cricket as it is now it will be better. It is an art, to see which bowler can reverse swing or not but we shouldn't legalise this [ball tampering]."


    PS: anybody who understands Urdu/Hindi should be able to understand what he actually wanted to say http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-D8PJ...layer_embedded

    If Gul reckons Anderson was ball tampering last summer why not mention it then when something could and should have been done about it had the allegation been correct.

    Gul will be in court soon me thinks as with no evidence to back it up he has just shouted his mouth off in the same way Botham and Lamb did all those years ago when they lost in court.

    Watch the video btw, and see what AB devilliers said.
    Exactly the same words but in English and in a more censored way.

    Well if Gul says he saw it last summer why not report it then?

    That is all i am saying. **** and fan springs to mind.

    If Anderson or any England player is doing it i would be happy to see them get banned. Not going to happen though unless players report it at the time. The SA incident looks bad but they were cleared by the authorities, not a lot you can do if they get cleared.

    if a player from an asian team did this then they would have a big deal out it labeling the whole team cheats etc, if a british guy stamps on the ball or scratches it then its not counted as ball tampering?
    awta.

    ball tampering isn't a big deal tbh.

    No they didn't, that "incident" happened in South Africa.

    You think Pakistan was in less trouble last summer? No wonder he and he his teammates never reported the incident.
    and it really doesnt matter when you cant reverse swing like Waqar and Umar Gul.

    When you win you stay happy.
    When you lose you whine.
    When you are in a controversy you just "Shut up".

    You are an Indian I think. Listen to the video, you will understand.
    Oh and that is a reporting mistake, some silly mistakes in translating that to English.
    There should be a full stop there.
    Umar Gul was asked a Question and he was giving examples, and there was no 'series' which he was talking about.
