    Shabbir Ahmed's bowling action is cleared

    Shabbir Ahmed, banned a year ago for 'probably bowling some deliveries where his arm bends by more than 15 °', has been allowed to resume his international career since he 'is now once again capable of bowling within the ICC tolerance level which is a 15 degree elbow extension with every delivery'.

    I've seen his action before and after he revamped it earlier. There was absolutely no difference. In fact, the first time I saw him, on debut against West Indies at Toronto in 1999, my first thoughts were "How on earth is this action legal?"

    So now let's start placing bets on when Shabbir will be hauled up again for breaking the 15 ° barrier? My gut feeling is that if he is picked for Pakistan's tour of South Africa coming up soon, he'll be reported for chucking yet again!

    In other chucking news, Martin Crowe, who spoke out passionately against chucking in his Cowdrey Lecture at Lord's earlier this year, has made it abundantly clear that he still thinks the legality of Murali's doosra should be reviewed yet again.
