    Obviously the ball-in-the-glove was a one-off but what if it does give rise to Gilly-clones as everybody tries to exploit this (if it is at all possible)?
    Why should bowlers be denied the opportunity to get more traction on the ball by using bandages?
    Exactly. It's an overreaction in the case of this particular article, and nothing but blatant bitterness, but that doesn't change the fact that it is an issue which will have to be addressed, and the sooner the better. Because one thing's for sure - something that works that well will very quickly start being tried by lots of people.

    Now, now...surely thats very unfair on Brett Lee. After all he has been cleared by the ICC after rectifying his action. No need to go on about it.

    A well thought out post !! Let's talk about the Lees, Malingas and Akhtars etc to conveniently forget the BIG CHEAT. I guess the smoke screen approach deflects attention from the GREATEST CHUCKER OF ALL TIMES !!

    Another thing I forgot to mention is that it's odd people are saying Gilchrist was out of form, and now he's in-form because of the glove... as if all those cleanly hit shots came from a glove. Gilchrist has good days from time to time.
    Im a Murali fan too, but all the articles on that site are just from baised Sri Lanka. All it does it create flame bait as this thread has just become. Really there have been plenty of articles that have come up about this topic, that would have been more approapiate to link then that article from that website.

    I think people have mentioned that the squash ball helped him hit straighter, it also reduced the friction when you hit the ball, so in theory you have more chance of clean hitting balls that you would normally mis time. For all those who think this just about Sri Lankan fans having a cry cus we lost the World Cup, it is in the case of the article. But personally i couldn't toss if it was Flintoff who used (he needs more) or Gilchirst, it still the same thing. I would be very suprised if it doesn't get banned, very soon.

    well you and Craig start calling me Paul Gilham if you feel the need.
    Two questions:
    How can a sig be behind the times?
    Why do you come over as a complete nob sometimes?

    Oh! I think you may have misread my post? With respect, I was referring to an internationally regarded CHEAT who instead of bowling in the spirit of the game has CHUCKED, CHUCKED, CHUCKED. History will long remember him for his CHUCKING action.

    No, I'm not discrediting the australian side or gilchrist a bit. And I never said he cheated. I'm saying that the people who are complaining do have a fair case in this. Doesn't mean you take the cup or the 100 away from them, no. But you do ban squash balls and anything similar from being used. And if a batsmen wants to do something innovative, they should get a ok from the officials next time.
