What a coincidence.PY said: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.
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/hi/sa/cricket/features/newsid_2373000/2373603.stmpontingrulz said:
His arm's always looked like that from front on.pontingrulz said:I have the proof and evidence now that shows that Murilithiran is full of S*** about not being able to straigten his arm.
How can you say that arm is straight when you can't even see the elbow? It is obscured by the shadow created by his shirt sleeve.pontingrulz said:hey PY are you looking at it witha 400x microscope or something because i dont see no shadow and it looks dead straight to me
No, but when people post photos and claim them to be something they aren't, I will complain.Kenny said: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?
Well, given that it's the same in each photo...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?
