    i have heard he inserts a small spring into his elbow,which aids his bowling. The spring was designed by a long lost Amazonian tribe three thousand years ago, to help them bend their arms around so that they could grab hands full of ants from nest under ground...its true i tell you

    Well it's about as true as some of the rubbish spouted by people on here about Murali!

    For all of you "See - I told you Murali's a chucker. Look. Here's a photograph of him which shows the arm perfectly straight. Ergo, he straightens it. Therefore, he chucks." merchants - here's an explanation why one photograph taken totally out of context proves nothing, zip, nada.

    Take a piece of wire - about a foot long should suffice. Kink it in the middle around, say, 90 degrees - ensure that the two 'sections' are reasonably straight, though.

    Hold the wire at one end with the other end pointing directly up towards you. See? The whole piece of wire looks straight. Now twizzle it between finger and thumb slowly until the other end has rotated 90 degrees. Oh, look now - a right-angle. Keep rotating - oh, straight again. The wire 'chucks'.

    Now go back and look at the doosra picture again, bearing in mind the wire 'experiment', but don't come back until you've a few others from different angles.

    Saying that, sure, investigate Murali again - but don't condemn him prematurely.

    Hey ppl, I'm back!
    And sorry to go digging-up a few threads (especially this one which has changed enormously in context), but this last post illustrates perfectly what I have tried to say many times - get enough angles, you can make a hell of a lot of optical illusions.

    Stand with your right hand raised above your head and in front of you with the palm facing you.

    Now flex (bend at elbow) and unflex your right arm. This just moves the upper part of your arm (from elbow to hand) towards you or away from you.

    Looked at by some one standing right opposite you and facing you, the bend at your elbow can not be seen.

    Thats all this picture shows and this exactly how he bowls the doosara with the palm facing himself and the back of the hand facing the batsman and then he flicks the hand forward from the wrist (and apparently from the elbow) towards the batsman, with the palm ending up facing the sky.

    This arm is not straight, its just the angle that makes it appear so.

    Murali the cheat!

    How long are you people going to keep defending Murali to the detriment of cricket? I think everyone of you know that he bowls with a bent arm that straightens on delivery.

    The guy is a damn cheat! He's like Carl Lewis; Carl tested positive for steroids three times during his career by the US Athletics Assn but they didn't report him because he was winning gold medals at the olympics.

    Great. So according to Will Scarlet , if Murali straightens his arm , he cant play cricket.According to Mox Pearl , if Murali cant straighten his arm , he cant play cricket.

    I suggest the two of you get a room and a copy of the laws of cricket , stay in there the whole night , and come out only the next day.
