    This time test a guy with a "clean" action too. Testing Herath / Perera and Ajmal both will be a good starting point to examine the accuracy of the methods used as well as to get an idea of what is actuallt "illegal" extension.

    I think for the integrity of game he actually has to pass. Too many wickets to get suspended now.

    England's defeat to Pakistan to be struck from the record IMO

    I would have thought the opposite - for the integrity of the game he actually has to fail. Too many batsman have been ripped off.

    Good to see the ICC trying to get on top of the issue, hope Ajmal is still bowling legally and gets cleared though

    I seem to remember he debuted a new magic ball in that series the "Teasrer" which involved walking up to the wicket and throwing it.

    Just read this......

    "In February 2012, the Pakistan Cricket Board was forced to clarify Ajmal's claims that he had been given special dispensation to straighten his arm 23.5 degrees in his bowling action - more than the ICC's 15-degree limit.

    After he took 24 wickets as Pakistan whitewashed England 3-0 in a Test series in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, Ajmal said he was allowed more leeway because an accident left his arm with a resting position of an 8.5-degree bend."

    Anyone else find this a bit suspect?

    Would be pretty mindblowing if Ajmal did get banned. It seems like people in this country (england) have just been starting to advocate and encourage the development of unconventional bowling styles instead of questioning the actions of the bowlers. Seems we might have to rollback on that opinion for the moment. Certainly Moeen shouldn't be trying his doosra anytime soon.

    It's clearly a messs.

    Did England and Gould ever get an apology from Sri Lanka for all the complaining and veiled accusations of racism they got about the reporting of Senanayke's action?

    Seems like the umpires have the least power of anybody. Seems like short of punching an umpire these days you can say or do anything towards them.

    Gould on a mission then.

    To be honest is anyone surprised?

    Always looked suspect and if he passes then it ends the arguments.

    He will certainly have felt empowered after getting it right with Senanayke's action.

    Why now? He's been blatantly chucking certain deliveries from the beginning. Let's hope Erasmus - or someone equally respected - is given the responsibility for determining whether he's doing now something which he wasn't doing before.
    "In 2009 he lost his old, faded India cap, when it was stolen from a ground. He was very, very upset about it. It was dear to him and he was extremely proud to wear it."

    But they're only ripped off if he fails. If he doesn't then they're perfectly legitimate wickets. You really think the legitimacy of the game will improve if it's shown that large quantities of batsman were ripped off by struggling against someone who was bowling illegally?
