Of Mark Richardson, and Murali’s bowling arm

Mr Mark Richardson, the former New Zealand batsman, is at it again. This time it concerns the bowling action of the Sri Lanka great Muttiah Muralitharan, who has been shown to have a body structure that makes his bowling arm deviate from being straight as he bowls.

Well, the latest ICC rules allow a 15 degree bending of the arm, and Mr Mark Richardson is “convinced” that Murali is going beyond the 15 deg rule. Watching the slow-motion replays on television have only strengthened his conviction, it seems.

Heh. I wonder why I’m not surprised.
