    I challenge these players to have urine and blood tests taken to ascertain whether this charge is true. There will still be some residue of the drug left.


    Genuine shocker.
    Hey don't knock the article, I agree with it whole-heartily.

    Particularly about nulling all results of the crims recently. I personally think they should go back about, erm 6 months perhaps

    Shouldn't the title be: 'Is Gilchrist a cheat?'

    Exactly. The point of the squash ball is that you can't grip the bat firmly with your bottom hand, making your top hand do all the work. It's an obstacle that is used to try and ensure that the bottom hand doesn't take over.

    I am amazed at whats being made of an impressive innovation by a cricketer. How does it make Gilchrist a cheat?

    1. He made no attempt to hide it. In fact the whole world came to know about it because he showed it up for all to see. So much for his intentions being dishonourable. (which is different from being innovative)

    2. Where is the law that says what kind of gloves can be worn by the batsman and what kind of inners inside them. I would love to read that.

    3. Suppose we got a batsman tomorrow who was physically capable of handling a 3 kgs bat (hypothetically speaking) do you know what he would do to the ball even with slight mis hits ? As far as I can read the law in this regard says absolutely nothing about the weight of the bat or the thickness of the blade. Could you ban such a player or call him a cheat. Not unless he did it even AFTER you had modified the laws to outlaw such a bat?

    One could think of other such situations. If a type of glove or bat or any other equipment enhances performance it can be considered illegal only if it contravenes any laid down laws regarding the same. If not, its for the law makers to take a call on whether this new development needs further legislation/ammendment/modification to/of existing laws.

    Finally it is only about the legality (purely technical) of the matter. How does cheating come into it - except by the wildest stretch of imagination assisted by dollops of latent angst against team/player in question.

    I completly agree with SJS, Gilly has done everything by the book and it was just a superb and innovative idea.


    Enough crap has been said about this already and i hope this topic is over once in for all.

    Yeah, so did I.

    That anyone would seriously write that really does beggar belief.
