    Bowlers Reported As Chuckers in cricket history

    As far as I am aware (with limited knowledge of cricket history) the following are bowlers who have been reported as chuckers in the past-
    Sonny Ramadhin (West Indies) - Slow or spin bowler
    Bishen Singh Bedi (India) - Slow or spin bowler

    Current Bowlers:
    Muralitharan(Sri Lanka) - Slow or spin bowler
    Shoaib Akhtar(Pakistan)
    Harbajan Singh(India) - Slow or spin bowler
    Jermaine Lawson(West Indies)
    James Kirtly(England)
    Kyle Mills (New Zealand)
    Grant Flower(Zimbabwe) - Slow or Spin bowler
    Some one from Kenya (name eascapes me)

    I would be interested if members of the forum could add any other names either past or present.

    I also heard somewhere that Bruce Yardley was once called for throwing (but not in an international). May have just been a rumour though.

    Present:
    Shabbir Ahmed (Pak)

    As far as I know, Kyle Mills has never been reported.

    I didn't know that Sonny Ramadhin had been called, but I do know that a lot of people had serious reservations about Wes Hall's action.

    And you criticised Marc for sarcasm?

    Are we omitting Henry Olonga out of respect?

    And just for statistical completeness (in Tests):

    E.Jones (Aus)
    G.A.R.Lock (Eng)
    G.M.Griffen(SA)
    Haseeb Ahsan (Pak)
    I.Meckiff (Aus)
    S.Abid Ali (ind)
    D.I.Gower (Eng)
    H.R.Olonga (Zim)
    M.Muraliduran(SL)
    (List published 1998)

    As a footnote, Eddie Gilbert, Queensland aboriginal fast bowler and the man Bradman said was the fastest he ever faced was also called for throwing several times despite having his action cleared by the best umpire in the land.

    I think someone was called for throwing in the 1830s simply because he was bowling overarm.

    Wasn't the first person to bowl overarm, in fact, a lady? I believe she had to as her dress got in the way of her bowling underarm.

    Think back to India's tour of New Zealand in 02/03.
