    There is something seriously different about it [Shoaib's action]," Reuters has quoted Chappell as saying to India's 24-hour television channel Times Now. His comments came after Sachin Tendulkar and Anil Kumble were hit on the helmet by rising Shoaib deliveries in the ongoing third and final Test at Karachi. Chappell added that India could do without its players being hit like that.

    So you're agreeing with me that his comments had nothing to do with the match result? Sachin and Kumble were hit during the first inning and Chappell made the comments after that. He's not even talking about wicket-taking deliveries!

    Do you expect the issue to come up at the ballot box in an election? He was India's coach - if he says it, it's coming from the Indian camp.

    You said Indians.
    (1) I don't know of another individual that brought it up.
    (2) While Chappell was representing India, he doesn't typify "Indians".

    Not saying that Indians don't whine but in this case facts don't back what you are saying.

    The last time Ajmal was tested their was no extant technology that allowed the revolutions of a ball to even be measured in a laboratory, never mind from 27 frame per second TV footage.

    I'd also direct people to a previous post of mine, quoting Dave Richardson:
    Measuring revs is a matter or sitting there and manually counting, also cameras at sporting events tend to be run at 60 fps. The final broadcast may be lower but they can still use the full 60 undoubtedly.

    It's not a fact though, it's our opinion watching footage on tv without comparing a range of samples of his bowling coupled with some fancy technology used by lab geeks which we do not understand and are merely speculating on.

    It may not be so clear cut and I can accept the idea that their technology may be flawed but there's just no comparison between that and the naked eye watching ~5 slow motions of his action per innings.

    It's similar to the debates we once had regarding hawk eye in that sense, and we all know what the majority and (imo) correct opinion was on that matter.

    Basically going on the points at hand I think there's a higher probablity that he's well within the rules. Just that these rules are ****.

    The fact is you can chuck and still stay within the 15 degrees just by expanding sideways aka the javelin action.
    Twenty-over cricket can be “boring”. It has grown up. It takes concentration. It is no longer a game for the post-literate generation. They need the distractions, the loud music to disguise the boredom. They never warned you about that.

    If you're going to moan about someone's action, do it after winning. Otherwise:

    We dial 999. That must be why we're stereotyped as whingers.

    Ok... So we won... Quite comfortably... Deteriorating wicket... And as I have been saying all along. Ajmal's doosra is an illegitimate throw. Doesn't not seem in bounds with the 15 degree rule, not that it might be 16 degrees but because he bends his arm likely close to 30 degrees. These are the facts deal with it.

    No, that is speculation. Learn the difference.
