It's well known that the specific attribution of 13° to McGrath around 2004 was a complete fabrication and that we don't have a specific figure on him, thanks to research ethics.

That may be a good citation I suppose. And Daily telegraph too.
McGrath and Pollock would have sued Daily Telegraph for libel if it was not the case.
Bottom line, under previous tolerance lomits, mcGrath and Pollock would have been out and out chuckers. Ironically, Murali would have survived limited to his off break.
I have several of Portus's papers. Murali's average extensions for the doosra are towards the upper end to right on the limit, and enough to be an outlier in some studies.
Murali could have sued any number of papers, Darrell Hair and Ross Emerson for libel too.
