Default Murali action reported, again

Muttiah Muralitharan's bowling action has been called into doubt for a second time, according to Sri Lankan team manager Ajith Jayasekera.

He said International Cricket Council (ICC) referee Chris Broad made the report after the third and final Test against Australia in Colombo.

Muralitharan has been reported for his new delivery that spins the other way from his stock off-break.

The spin star's action has previously been cleared by the ICC.

"I was called this morning to the match referee's office and Chris Broad told me that he had some bad news and that he would be reporting Muralitharan for the ball that goes the other way," Mr Jayasekera said.

"We broke the news to the team and Murali at the end of play. He was very disappointed, but Murali does not think he has a problem with this delivery."

You said it, RidwanBhai!

If there is some doubts regarding Murali's action after clearing that it is due to genetical defects than chucking, it is disgusting. If this is an issue ICC should ban him along with Lee, Akhtar and Shabbir Ahmed. But in reality the issue is newly taken up by the same Australian doctor who cleared Murali by stating that it was genetical problem, the bend of the hand. Here one can sense a conspiracy in fresh discussion of the issue becuase of the fact that Murali is the only present threat to Warne to become the highest wicket taker in the history of the game.

well to my aussie brothers,
i am really sorry, but i dont think you will be able to stop murali. cuz warne is old and i think sooner or later he will retire. and murali will still be playing. and it will be a matter of time for him to beat warne. so bad luck for warne. and please stop this non sense. you know you are not going to get anything. you guys are just trying to make the mess the beauty of the game.

I'd like to point out that it takes 6 weeks to fully analyse it and he's allowed to bowl in that time. Meaning...he will break Courtney Walsh's record in Zimbabwe even if he is guilty

Navarene, Sanwar too?

Yes, Sanwar was treated the same way. He was allowed to play under the ICC rule, though Dav and our Board opted not to make him bowl if I remember it correctly.

Yes, thanks James.

Murali will be going through a two-staged process now.

Great guesture from Gilchrist:

Australia vice-captain Adam Gilchrist paid credit to Muralitharan's performances despite the controversy.

"Murali's been a very successful bowler for a number of years now," Gilchrist told reporters in Perth.

"We all know there'd been questions before but he'd been cleared, so all he can do is keep turning up and playing and he's done that to the best of his ability."

Default Ranatunga launches scathing attack on Chris Broad

"The point I am trying to make is that he bowled the doosra even while I was playing. Today he has mastered that delivery and it is total nonsense to suggest that there are any problems with it."

Ranatunga believes Broad was not only out of order in acting unilaterally at such a crucial juncture in Muralitharan's career, but also out of his depth.

"This is all to totally discredit the achievement of a great player. Murali is chasing the world record with Shane Warne and the Australians and English do not want one of our players getting there [first]."

Default More Quotes ....

Ross Emerson's recent comments in the Melbourne Age have added fuel to this conspiratorial perception. Emerson, who no-balled Muralitharan in 1996 and 1998, has revealed that he was encouraged to do so by officials within the Australian cricket board. Emerson says: "The ACB never told me his action was all right. Quite the contrary, [a Cricket Australia official] encouraged me to call him a week before Adelaide in January 1998."

Broad has not helped himself by not checking his facts. The assertion that Muralitharan's doosra is "new" is, quite frankly, ludicrous. Murali first learnt the delivery from a school friend called Priya Wickramatunga at St Antony's College. He started to bowl it in international cricket post-1996 and mastered in the last 12 months.

Those of use that have watched Murali, series after series, have seen him bowl it a thousand times. Just read old newspapers on the Internet and see how India's journalist's marvelled at the delivery way back in 2001. That same year, Broad was a commentator for TalkSport Radio in Sri Lanka.

Of course, Broad is quite entitled to question the legality of any delivery no matter when it was first conceived. Unfortunately, though, his assertion that it is "new", because he has been told so from "informed sources", has undermined his credibility in Sri Lanka every trishaw driver in town knows that's tripe.

Many believe Murali's testing by the University of Western Australia in 1996 was a sham. But how many have seen the actual report? Contrary to popular opinion, the conclusion was not simply that he had a congenital deformity and therefore could not straighten his arm. Yes, his permanently bent-arm was identified. But, also, no partial straightening was detected from six different cameras shooting at a thousand frames per second.

How many people realise that after these tests, Murali undertook two further and voluntary tests on his bowling action, in Hong Kong in 1996 and in England in 1999? These tests even used sensors on his arms and elbow to detect partial movement again the conclusion was that his action was legal.

Let science be the judge

The one that Murali used to bowl used to go either straight, or turn very slightly from the leg side. I saw pretty much everything that he bowled in the 2001 series that he mentioned.

What I hear is that the new one turns like a leg break. The one that bowled Lehmann in the first Test apparently turned three or four stumps width.

well who cares about sanwar. first of all we have much better players in our team than sanwar. we have rana now. so even if is action is illegal it really doesnt matter. and he is also not in form and also i think he is old. better talk about murali. bechara i really feel sorry for this guy. this guy really has patience even after all the harassing he is facing he is still continuing. he didnt stop for a bit. he is dedicated and i think he should be like that and i think finally he will be able to stop this nonsense objections that are claimed against him. but he never should give up. or else these non sense people will win.

Default Muttiah Muralitharan has completed five of the most important overs of his life,

Muralitharan tests completed

Charlie Austin

April 2, 2004



Muttiah Muralitharan has completed five of the most important overs of his life, strapped with reflective markers and watched by twelve high-speed cameras. The fate of Muralitharan's controversial doosra now waits upon the conclusions of a computer.

Muralitharan wasted no time in undertaking the second tests of his career at the University of Western Australia in Perth after his "doosra" was labeled suspect by Chris Broad, an International Cricket Council match referee. The analysis was carried out on Wednesday night and the results are expected shortly.

Professor Bruce Elliott, an ICC-approved human movement specialist employed to undertake the tests, is confident that the assessments will produce a clear conclusion: "We put reflective markers on Murali, which are captured by the cameras and computers. The computer then does the calculation and gives us the answer.

Elliot said that Muralitharan fervently believes his doosra is legitimate: "His comment is that he uses far more wrist in his top-spin delivery to create his doosra. We will see if there is any truth in that. He has such rotational ability with his wrist, his strange elbow and in his shoulder that is quite possible that it is an optical illusion."

According to new ICC guidelines, which acknowledge after scientific research that a certain amount of flexing is unavoidable in all bowlers, Muralitharan's arm cannot straighten beyond five degrees to be deemed legal.

Bruce Yardley, a former Australian spinner who has also coached Sri Lanka, watched every ball of the tests to ensure that Muralitharan used the same energy and action that has brought him 513 Test victims. Yardley was satisfied that his bowling was the same as when he bowled competitively.

The footage will now be analysed by Elliott and Daryl Foster, the former WA coach and bowling advisor to the Sri Lanka team. The report will then be handed over to the Sri Lanka cricket board, who will file a report to the ICC within six weeks. The results especially if they clear Muralitharan are likely to be made public long before that deadline.

Default Waugh supports Muralitharan, believes action legal

Former Australia captain Steve Waugh has come out in support of Muttiah Muralitharan while the Sri Lankan off-spinner faces fresh allegations of chucking.

Waugh said he hoped a study conducted by an Australian biomechanist into Muralitharan's suspect bowling action cleared him of any wrongdoing.

"I hope for the game's sake that they find he's okay because he's great to watch," Waugh told a luncheon on Wednesday.

"He makes Sri Lanka competitive in world cricket, he gets people through the gate, he gets people talking about cricket.

"They are the sort of players you want in the game."

Waugh, who retired in January as the world's most-capped test player, said he thought Muralitharan's action was legal and he urged cricket authorities to change the existing laws regardless of the study to erase any doubts about his bowling.

"It's like an optical illusion because he has such an unusual action," Waugh said.

"They need to change that rule or to eliminate it, or do something with it so that everyone's relaxed and just get on with playing the game."

Muralitharan (513) is locked in a race with Australian leg-spinner Shane Warne (517) to overtake Courtney Walsh (519) as cricket's leading wicket-taker.

He seems certain to reach the target on the tour of Zimbabwe that begins later this month though his preparations have been hindered after he was reported by match referee Chris Broad after taking 28 wickets in the recent series with Australia.

He was reported and cleared in the 1990s but the new allegation revolve around his 'doosra', a quirky delivery which spins the opposite way to how an off-spinner normally bowls.

Default Murali \'doosra\' will get all clear, says Sri Lanka chief

Sri Lanka cricket chief Mohan de Silva is confident that Muttiah Muralitharan's controversial 'doosra' or wrong'un delivery will be cleared following a biomechanical report on his action.

Sri Lanka's cricket board have appointed a review group to assess the results of the scientific study, carried out at the University of Western Australia by human movement specialist Bruce Elliott.

"I am confident that he should be able to bowl the doosra," de Silva told reporters on Wednesday.

"We received the report by email this afternoon and the bowling review group will go through it tomorrow (Thursday)."

No public announcement, however, will be made until they have compiled their report and forwarded it to the International Cricket Council (ICC), the game's world governing body.

"We will have to wait for video footage to arrive from Australia, probably by the weekend, before forwarding our observations to the ICC and awaiting their recommendations," de Silva added.

Current ICC regulations allow for a five-degree partial straightening of the arm for slow bowlers, seven-and-a-half degrees for medium bowlers and ten degrees for fast bowlers.

Muralitharan's 'doosra', which spins in the opposite direction to his regular off break, was reported as suspect by ICC match referee Chris Broad during Sri Lanka's home series against Australia last month.
