i haven't been following cricket for quite a while. i saw couple of clip in google video of how he knocked out couple of batsmen with a bouncer or full toss right at their head! i know it's probably not intentional but how did the batsmen (especially brian lara)and their teams and ICC react afterwards? thanks.

There is nothing wrong with a bouncer that hits the head. I am not sure which beamer you are talking about, but if you could post the link to the google video - I may just remember the game. Most likely it was an accident though. Sometimes fast bowlers lose control at the moment of delivery and bowlers usually immediately apologize to the batsmen.

That was a bouncer, NOT a full toss aimed at the head. What is wrong with that? These deliveries are bowled every single day and good batsmen know very well how to negotiate them. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that.

Shoaib is the killer but nothing right now beats Shahadat's bouncer on Ricky Ponting's head.. it was so satisfying!... and as Shahadat walked backed he kept staring at Ponting to send a simple message- "what?".

Yea but that's Shoaib's speciality, although nowadays he uses the slower delivery quite effectively.. IMO one of the best genuine fast bowlers of modern day cricket.. I remember when he bowled Tendulkar (probably the first time) the stump swung 5 times before it finally landed near Moin Khan.

gosh, did u c when that bat simply cracked open. jeez. how fast can this guy go? he's a menace. i'd say even more hostile than malcolm marshall and curtly.

he does it intentionally 2. he isnt particularly known 4 being a gentleman.
rememba wen he dismissed dravid, and he turned his head around and smirked.! lolllllliiieee!
