How are they going to test him? After all these years, wouldn't the skin on his forearms be at risk of spontaneous combustion on the slightest exposure to any form of light?

He's been tested before and passed. How is this any different or have they got better technology?
Or maybe his action has regressed?
marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!
Anyone want to join the Society?
Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
I, for one, welcome our new action-testing overlords.
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.
Not that used in the lab, but that which records the revs a spinner imparts in games. It was mentioned when Senanayake was banned that the testers weren't convinced that some of the balls he sent down were akin to those bowled (supposedly, etc, etc...) in match conditions.
Now revs per min are routinely recorded testers maybe have more of a base line to work from; so if a bowler tries to duke the tests it's more obvious.
I think to a naked eye Slower bowlers with unconventional actions look more suspect always, but would like Some Fast bowlers reported as well.
ICC needs to find a round that inherent bias in the system almost. Random testing maybe ?

There are two colours in my head
Think the ICC used to do all it's testing in Perth, Western Australia before.
Now they are using more labs around the world which they want to bring under their control more etc..
Ajmal and Pakistan seem to be so precious..
I've seen straighter arms from boundary fielders than Ajmal does bowling an offie.
It'd be interesting getting an insight on how the testing works, it is possible to bowl a different style at the testing nets. Assume it's all backed up with cameras and stuff.
Hopefully Ajmal plays the next test - Sanga needs to get another double
