    Not really, he gave an interview in urdu about it. To you and most people it has just come out, but the ICC knew it all along and that is what matters.

    Why does it matter if the media did not know about it before?

    So does this mean that guys like Brumby who were labelling Ajmal as a chucker were wrong because of this natural kink making it look like chucking (deceiving their judgement). He may be ugly to watch but this new evidence shows that he really wasn't a chucker all along.

    Too much concentration on his action by the English Media and ex - cricketers this series for my liking. Yes the Teesra was really bad, but he stopped bowling that and it's not like that he has just started playing cricket or came out of nowhere.

    Lets not blame the English performance on Ajmal's action. They failed against Rehman who has a squeaky clean action.

    Ajmal's doosra looks to be chucked to the naked eye. But if its within the rules, then how can it be illegal? ICC should just make sure that bowlers are not bowling legally while testing and then chucking during the match,
    Get well soon Yuvi!!

    Testing isn't exactly the best way to make sure the bowler is consistent in a match and in the lab. However they do compare the bowlers action in the lab with his action in a match. They make sure that he is bowling at the same speed and puts the same revolution on the ball as he does in match conditions. How is it that Botha got caught by the ICC bit Ajmal hasn't? Is Ajmal more sneaky and clever than Botha?

    Botha got caught because his doosra was measured at about 30 degrees IIRC.

    haha.....so true
    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

    PCB clarifies Saeed Ajmal’s comments

    Lahore February 7, 2012: Pakistan Team Manager Naveed Akram Cheema, while clarifying off-spinner Saeed Ajmal’s comments on his bowling action, has issued the following statement:

    “The ICC’s level of tolerance of 15 degrees relates to the degree of elbow extension that is permitted in the bowling action i.e. the amount by which the arm is straightening.

    “Previous tests conducted on the action of Saeed Ajmal show that the degree of elbow extension is well within ICC’s tolerance levels.

    “Saeed Ajmal was referring to the angle of elbow abduction i.e. the angle of the upper arm to the forearm and not the degree of elbow extension. This angle is approximately 23 degrees in Saeed’s case.”

    ICC General Manager – Cricket, David Richardson, said: “There is a big difference between the “elbow carry angle” (elbow abduction) and the degree of elbow extension. There is nothing preventing a bowler bowling with a bent arm, provided he does not straighten it beyond the permitted degrees of tolerance.”

    if this was coming from bitterness or whatever they would also be accusing rehman but no one has said a word about him. face it, they're calling him a chucker because he looks an awful lot like one.

    Looking like a chucker and being a chucker isn't the same. The ICC know more than anyone else. The English media can cry as much as they want but it won't change the fact that he has been cleared by the ICC.

    ICC has scientific methods to Test these alleged chuckers. Ajmal has been cleared by the ICC. It appears that Ajmal did not know what he was trying to convey with that 23.5 degrees. ICC has come out and said that it is not the case.

    Because the English batters appeared clueless and could not pick his doosra, teesra etc. Bob (Willis), Andy (Flower), Tom, Dick and Harry call him chuckers..

    Classic case of Sour Grapes.

    Sour Grapes. Usually Delhi Belly is an excuse. This time it's chucking.
