    My argument is that its obvious, and if they allow Ajmal to bowl like this then everyone should. Just seems like Ajmal is only getting away with it cause he managed to fool the people at the icc, but in match situation his doosra is no ways on earth 15 degrees. If we allow this EVERYONE should be allowed to throw, I mean bowl like this.

    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

    No one complained about Ian Meckiff until he shot England out for 80 odd

    No. They complained after they won the match. They then went on to win the series.

    Blimey, you don't follow cricket much if you only realised that from these posts rather than cricinfo, which was available for a good while before your incredibly perceptive post

    Oh c'mon SS you're better than that, people have been wondering of why a 30 plus spinner has gone from average to the best spinner in the world for a while now, and his doosra looks even uglier than normal in this match.

    Nah you don't understand, apparently if you don't bring it up EVERY time you see him bowl the any questioning is invalid.

    If you only bring it up every time he bowls well, then it doesn't really seem like you're just questioning his action. More wanting an excuse for him to be kicked out because he's doing so well against a team you support..

    either that, or you're still upset about the beating Ajmal handed to England in UAE. And also loving an English cricketer and a "saffie" cricketer often equates to the same thing these days.

    Yeah, I love KP on record for it, it's such a beautiful post about not arguing the actual point.

    I hate Williamson's action for the record, just in case the Kiwis beat us, because obviously we can't mention actions afterl they beat us. Of course it would be silly to suggest that Ajmal has only come good in his latter years, with his new action.

    Thread was dead for almost a year, until his recent performance against South Africa. Coincidence?

    Because we all decided his action was fine for the last year....

    It only came back because one person mentioned in the tour thread and was directed here.

    People mentioned it on a Tour thread, someone asked for this thead to be resurrected, rrather than talk about it on the tour thread. If you honestly believe there's been no talk on Ajmal's action all this time, well you're wrong. He's had some quite good "bowling" in that time too..

    How about some of you go have a chat to the blokes who tested him rather than spouting baseless conspiracies, I hear they know a bit about this sort of thing.
