I cant do that so not sure either, but lets imagine someone comes along with an elbow bent at 45 degrees naturally.... where do we draw the line of ridiculous?
If someone can actually keep their arm at 45 degrees without excessive straightening and bowl usefully then all the power to them. Personally I don't think you could get any work on the ball at all from that sort of angle with the amount of effort you'd have to put in to not straighten the arm.
do you think people will be allowed to make violins?
who's going to make the violins?
Maybe that's the case, but would it be bowling?

i pretty much don't understand anything in that article apart from "Ajmal's action is fine. That is a scientific fact."

Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
- The ICC is reluctant to discuss bowling actions in detail because officials fear the subject is too complicated to explain.

I think we can believe the ICC here. Kudos to cricinfo for playing a part in clearing this doubt.
Thank you espncricinfo.

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
The devil is in the detail, before people get too excited.
That doesn't tell us a great deal in actuality. He could bend his arm 12 degrees 15% of the time and that statement would be accurate. It also doesn't tell us anything about when he's tiring, when he's bowled his teesra or if he decides in a game to really 'rip' one early on in a batsman's innings as Warne used to and bends his arm a lot more to achieve it. It only tells us about his general bowling (excluding the teesra) in a general situation.Originally Posted by Cricinfo
