    The jury is still out on Brett Lee's beamers

    Steve Waugh feels that Lee's action and his lack of height result in him bowling beamers accidentally now and then.

    A couple of old Aussie fogies have differing opinions. Rodney Hogg feels that Lee's actions were deliberate while Lenny Pascoe, that gentle giant is confident that the ball slipped.

    Graeme Watson, who played a few tests for Australia, and was hit by a beamer during an Australia v/s Rest of the World XI "Test" at Melbourne by Tony Greig defended Brett Lee saying that he was not doing it deliberately and that the balls were actually only waist high rather than gunning for the batsman's head.

    Clive Lloyd, whose merry men were not averse to the deploying this art, has also jumped into the fray, felt that it was unintentional and that the umpires also felt so and hence did not take any action.

    The Bladder takes a sardonic view of these incidents/accidents.
