    An ICC spokeman denied that was the case. "There is no dispensation for anyone," he said. "It is worth remembering that his first language is not English and this may have been a slip of the tongue."

    Look like a language issue to me.

    Eh? I think it's widely acknowledged that he essentially ran up and chucked for his 'teesra' - where people have estimated a straightening of 30 degrees. Don't remember him in the outfield - assuming he didn't underarm or bowl the ball in he would have thrown it then.

    A lot of people also thought that some of the deliveries in the series were turning by 30 degrees, but it turned out that they actually turned by 7 or 8 degrees.

    Never in a million years would I have thought Brumby to admit this!!!!!!

    15 + 8 = 23

    Does he mean to say he's allowed 8 over the 15 because of an accident? I'm confused.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    No. He is not allowed to straighten more than 15 degrees like any other bowler.

    Language doesn't explain such a specific number though.

    Language may mean that the number could mean something completely different to what we think though.

    ICC has denied that there is no dispensation for anyone

    Ajmal has a natural kink of 8.5 degrees due to his accident. So when bowling if he bends the arm up to 23.5 degrees and then straightens it back to 8.5 degrees (he can't straighten it more due to the accident) wouldn't that be legal because he has only straightened it by 15 degrees. Although we don't even know if he actually bends it by 23.5 degrees.

    He meant he has a 23 degree bend in his arm but it straightens under the 15 degree limit - so under the rules.

    Seems that this is correct. Ajmal is allowed to bend his arm up to 23.5 degrees, but the straightening law applies the same to him.

    It's funny how this natural kink has only just come into the open isn't it?
