    Well when even an expert of Mr Elliott's stature is unconvinced then it must raise a few doubts.

    I must admit Ive never really beleived Murali was a chucker , but Im sure of one thing , his arm in that picture is razor blade straight.

    If you actually look at the picture, it appears straight from the batsman's perspective but if you looked at it side-on it could still be bent.

    In fact in all likelihood it is still bent as the shadow on the picture makes it look like the arm isn't fully extended.

    However, if this UWA guy says the doosra is dodgy then it has to be investigated. Bit strange he has decided to say this when Sri Lanka are playing Australia and not when they played England.

    The picture is just an illusion because I'm pretty sure it will be bent from another point of view, however that UWA professor has got me interested. I still don't believe he chucks but if the UWA professor has his doubts then it should be checked out.

    honestly, its bent. you need to see it from the side on angle, which from the little bit that you can see looks as if it would be bent. just a opticle illusion i think.
    eep.

    this is quite ridiculous because it has already been established that murali bowls with a bent arm . the rule for chucking states that u are allowed to bowl with a bent arm as long as it never straightens during the action, if that is the case with murali then he does not chuck.http://news.bbc.co.uk/sportacademy/h...00/2373603.stm
    ...but i think that rule needs to be changed because that bent arm action gives him an unfair advantage.

    1) Stand at mid on

    2) Look at bowler

    3) Notice bend

    4) See point evaporate

    So one angle is all you need, huh? And I might add, it's a bit nuts to say "Okay, on almost every other angle his arm is bent but one THIS one it MIGHT be straight. Well, that's proof enough for me!!!!!!!!!!"

    Yup, I've done ONE test on this new drug and it didn't cause any problems in rats so it's therefore PERFECTLY SAFE. I think I'll call it Thalydomide...............

    One could be forgiven for thinking that Mr.Pickup has a vested interest in Murali being forever free of any scrutiny......what, is he just cleared forever?

    That 3rd photo in the set of three is a beauty......his arm is really bent there - does anyone believe it stayed that bent right thru delivery?

    His arm's always looked like that from front on.

    "Proof" would be a 360 degrees view, not from one angle.

    Unless someone has broken and reset his arm, it is physically impossible for him to straighten it.

    So who's the one who's full of that Brown substance?

    Yes, seeing as that's it at the extent of it's straightness.
