    Whining after loosing is more irritating that whining after wining. Some keep whining after whining too.
    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

    Icc backs Ash-mal
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    BCCI should probably have complained after the WC semifinal/final... atleast theyd already won and cud have said "He chucked, but we STILL beat 'em"
    Here they sound like crybabies.

    Still, i do agree with them , that his action does look suspicious. Whether he actually chucks or not, i dunno... ICC doesnt think so, and in the end thats what matters

    Disappointed with BCCI's move. I don't care if Ajmal bends his arm by 15.5 degrees, if this is what he can do

    How can you not want to see spectacles like that as a cricket fan?!

    "Beautiful doosra" is up there with "military intelligence", "reality television" or "Scottish largesse" as oxymorons go.
    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

    Except that beauty is subjective.

    What is not subjective though is the fact that Ajmal deceived one of the greatest players of spin of all time with his variation. Beauty be damned but that battle is something, and that's what I meant.

    I assume a bowler bowling with some nunchucks and maybe some molotov cocktails and a batsman batting with a mace would be some battle
    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
