    Apparently so. Go to Trevor Franklin's cricinfo profile, click the first related article.

    I'd get you the link, but I'm heading off right now.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    New ZealandersVic Pollard, Bruce Murray and Bryan Yuile all, I believe, missed Test matches because their religious beliefs/activities meant they couldn't/wouldn't play on Sundays

    Phil Edmonds drove into the car park at Lords the day before a Test in 1983 and pulled a muscle in his back getting out of the car.

    Consequently Nick Cook was called up to make his debut..

    I'm sure that a lot of our players have faked injuries to avoid playing agianst strong teams like South Africa or Australia.
