    Reverse Swing

    I want to discuss whether ball tampering still exists till now. I have seen wasim akram, waqar, shoaib,and many pakistanis along with ganguly scratching the ball. but recently hvent seen any one do that.

    does it still exist

    Players still throw the ball deliberately across the ground to scuff the ball up, but that's not ball tampering. Reverse swing is everywhere.

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.

    I think the bowler is shoaib Akhar and the batter is none other than Rahul Dravid in Bouncers avatar

    Dravid's style and technique is so distinct, it's so obvious that's him in the avatar. I think its Akhtar bowling, but it could be Waqar.

    That definately is Shoaib Akhtar bowling. And if I'm not wrong, the ball played in the avatar was followed by another yorker, which found Sachin's stumps...

    does it still exist
    If anyone seriously thinks they've eliminated ball-tampering they're kidding themselves as much as anyone who thinks they've eliminated match-fixing or terrorism.

    That's an awesome amount of swing with a 4 piece ball! (Not saying it can't be done by the way, just that it's very impressive!) Fleming used to swing in considerably at times too, just not at the same pace (that's Damien not Stephen, haha - a blast from the past).

    Reverse swing is created by applying saliva to the shiny side of the ball late in the innings isn't it? At least that was what I was taught.

    there is nothing greater or exciting then this sort of bowling....those deliveries that Akhtar bowled to get rid of Dravid and Sachin at Eden Gardens in 1999. It just blows your mind away.
