    Do you think Murali was a chucker?

    Probably been other threads on it, but wanna see what the current consensus is. No intention to provoke, don't even have to discuss it, just vote. Irrelevant option left out intentionally, so suck it up.

    The current obsession of degrading the credibility of champion cricketers is baffling and amusing at the same time

    Depends how many beers he's had.

    Asad Rauf tells a story that he was once out with Murali on a five day bender (which is nothing for Raufy the loose son of a bitch) and after the fourth day Murali would spew every time Raufy would buy him a rum on the rocks.

    That's what Murali said when Asad Rauf took him to the Spearmint Rhino on day one.

    Yes, the same as a number of other cricketers until the rule change.

    As per the rule change was he a chucker, no way. There may have been the odd delivery that wasn't legal but i hesitate to doubt that this may well have happened to a number of bowlers who's actions come closer to the limit.

    What is the definition of chucker for these purposes?

    So my take is that people who voted as 'yes' have no idea about the related cricket rules or just want to go by what they see on TV screen?
    I'll show how it's done....

    Some may disagree about how the rules define a throw.

    Basic fact is they changed the rule to accommodate him.
