    There seems to be some serious wire-crossing here. The thing that concerns me about the yahoo article is that it keeps restating that Murali is going to shelve the doosra, but nowhere in the article does he actually say that (or even, imply it). He does say that he'll wait and see what the ICC and the Sri Lankan board tell him, but then, in the Age article, a day later, he directly says that he'll continue to bowl it.

    It's possible that this is down to ICC incompetency - maybe the ICC waited for the S.L. board to read the news and pass the info on to Murali, rather than contacting them (or Murali) directly?

    Otherwise... Nothing more to say than "sigh". Murali's already lost all my respect anyway. It'll be an interesting little test for Proctor.

    I cant even imagine the outcry from Sri Lanka if Murali gets banned for a year.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    i sense a touch of arrogance(and a bit of foolishness) from murali after breaking the record. i think that decision from the icc definetly reflects that they regret not having done something about his action long before.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    I haven't liked him since he was all sulky when handing out the medals to England at Rugby World Cup.

    He should keep to things he knows about.

    At least he handed them out. Hitler wouldn't present Jessie Owens with the 100m Gold Medal at the 1936 Olympics because he was a 'n igger'.

    I am just waiting for Sri Lanlan PM to declare Brett Lee a chucker.

    IMO Mr. Howard should let ICC handle Murali issue.

    Are you saying you DID like him before that?

    I'm not sure the Sri Lankan PM would be as crazy about cricket, as Mr. Howard has seemed to be.
