    Crowe and Cullinan on Ashwin's new action

    An interesting discussion with Crowe and Cullinan on Ashwin's comments about his new action

    Match Point : India news | Crowe: Everyone capitalising on 15-degree rule | Cricket videos, MP3, podcasts, cricket audio | ESPN Cricinfo

    I completely agree with Crowe here. The rot started a long time ago and it's only gotten worse. A lot of race cards, PC cards etc, were played by the offending parties and the ICC swept it all under the carpet.

    Sorry indictment on the game is right

    Applaud Ashwin's honesty but is very sad to hear an international bowler say what he did

    did he even wear long sleeves in the game last night? from the few highlights i saw i didn't think he did. hope it's a public 'stunt' because he wants the throwing culture to be removed rather than just wanting to throw.
    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    Yeah, I reckon its the former. I think this is a planned attack on Narine and Ajmal because he feels they are getting a leg up over him. You'd imagine he'd not be this open about it if he just wanted to be able to throw. He'd just do it with long sleeves like they do.

    Crowe's thoughts on this are terrible.
    "I don't have a problem with the offspinner's action being up to 15 degrees straightening, but I do have a problem with the doosra being up to that level".
    Why? I suppose he also has a problem with the carrom ball? for no other reason that it's difficult for batsmen?

    Cullinan seemed far more reasonable.

    Also, I'm unsure what's questionable about Narine's action.

    Like saying I don;t have a problem when a killer kills a man and gets a 15 year sentence, but I do have a problem if a killer of a woman being sentenced up to that level.

    What a bizarre analogy.

    it's like saying you're ok with James Anderson bowling inswing but not outswing.
    It's a stupid comment.

    If you can do two things within the same parameters then it doesn't make sense to condemn one of them; if you want to do that then change the actual parameters so that only one of them is possible. The reason the doosra was allowed was because Murali had proven (time and time again) that he could bowl it within the parameters that other bowlers were bowling conventional deliveries.

    Most people can't do that. Hell, Shane Shillingford can't even bowl an off spinner within the laws.

    The problem, and indeed the only problem with the current laws is that they don't allow for in-game testing.

    Senanayake bowls with a bent elbow. Tested twice and found to have very little straightening. He might extend it more when he is tired, but every bowler does that and the cleanness of the action is not a factor. To his credit he gave away the big off break which was found to be borderline all together. That is why he looks like a bowler who spins it a little. Spun it half a yard sometimes in the past.
