Some people still believe that McGrath flexed his elbow 12 degrees after Murali made the claim in an interview. When confronted about where he got that information Murali blamed it on misrepresentation by the media.
No testing by the ICC or anyone else showed McGrath to be flexing his elbow by 12 degrees.
Earlier, Australian Cricketers' Association chief executive Tim May, who sat on the ICC committee that shaped the proposed regulations to change the rules on throwing, cast doubt on the accuracy of the figures produced by Murali about the degrees of extension employed by McGrath, Gillespie and Lee.
During an interview on Sport 927, the former Test wickets world-record holder claimed McGrath, Gillespie and Lee flexed their arms at 13, 12 and 14-15 degrees respectively. Although vague in explaining where he obtained those figures, Muralitharan was adamant he had been misrepresented
