Gilchrist also disagreed with the decision only to focus attention on Murali's doosra. "What I find interesting is they say you don't need to look at his general offbreak any more because we have cleared that. A bowler can change what they want, every single delivery in a Test match, whatever they want to do with their wrist or the arm. I don't see that you can say they are cleared, we don't need to look for it any more."
Gilchrist had earlier been reprimanded by the Australian board for making comments on Muralitharan's action, but this time the board has decided not to take any action against him"

And BTW, Allah was on our side.
Irfan Pathan is the son of a muezzin, the bloke who wails over the loudspeaker of a mosque, telling the faithful, that Allah was waiting for his best-of-fives [you have to pray five times a day or Allah gets fierce, or so I am told;)] series.
My hat is off to John Wright, the Kiwi, who as coach, made a great necklace out of different precious stones.
Cricket has made Hindus and Muslims in India friends again. Pakistani kids clamoured for autographs from Indian cricketers and Indian new ball bowlers had former Pakistani new ball bowlers as advisers.
God bless cricket.
