    ESPNCricinfo published a list of Frequently Asked Questions about illegal bowling actions the other day. Question 1, was as follows:What is an illegal bowling action?An illegal bowling action is one in which the bowler's 'elbow extension' exceeds 15 degrees while he is in his delivery stride. The ICC set the 15-degree limit for all bowlers in November 2004.This is wrong. But perhaps, it is not Cricinfo's fault. The ICC has been saying this for 10 years now. It all goes back to a recommendation by a sub-committee constituted by the then chair of the ICC's Cricket Committee, Sunil Gavaskar. At…

  • The Birth Of The Suspect Action

    Kartikeya Date
    15 Sep 2014 | 6:10 pm
    Pakistan's ace spinner Saeed Ajmal was banned from bowling in competitive cricket by the ICC after a technical review of his action found that Ajmal flexed his elbow more than double the allowed 15 degrees.

Kane Williamson, Marlon Samuels, Shane Shillingford, Sachithra Senanayake have been studied and banned at least to some degree.This increased scrutiny of bowling actions follows an ICC Cricket Committee directive…
  • Pataudi Trophy 2014: After The Oval

    18 Aug 2014 | 2:41 pm
    India were dismissed twice in less than 100 overs for the 2nd Test running. Their batting has collapsed in the last two Tests of this series in unexpected fashion. I'm not going to try and present a lengthy autopsy here. But the lamentation is worth reflecting on. What sort of defeat is intolerable?,  Liberate Dhoni, India failed to provide a serious examination, Test team has embarrassed the country. You get the picture.I must confess that I don't find any type of defeat in cricket intolerable. Its sport and teams win and lose. The pleasure in sport comes from watching it take place.

    Cricket has to be watched. Only the score can be learnt by reading most match reports or live commentary. If you watch even an hour of the day's play, then you will learn nothing more by reading professionally prepared match reports as a rule. If you read match reports about Day One at The Oval, you'll find plenty about the Indian captain "standing firm" and tedious plays on the word 'green'. You'll find that unsuccessful leaves are generally "half-hearted", while players who make runs are "competitive".Anybody who has to rely on match reports to know what's going on on a cricket field could…
  • Over Rates In Cricket

    7 Aug 2014 | 11:52 am
    I've resisted writing this post for a very long time. But I continue to be amazed by how many professional observers are utterly unaware of the ICC's over rate law. They invariably do a simple division of the number of overs bowled in a day by 6, and then express outrage when the number is about 10% less than 15.This post is intended as a catalog of instances of professional observers indulging in this wrong over-rate arithmetic (see explanation below for why it is so). I will update it as and when I find such observations. If you find such instances, please leave a comment and i'll add them…
