Well PCB deserves a pat on the back for this unprecedented move, players need to be made aware of problems in their actions at the domestic level itself.
Dont think Sri Lankan board would agree to that, Malinga and Murali are still playing, Murali has been doing it for the past decade and nothings been done about it

Congrats to PCB to take a such BOLD & COUREGOUS

I am a very avid Cricket lover & try to watch Cricket
on Television whenever possible. I have noticed
bowlers ACTION from Other Countries are also suspicious and Dubious. On Television with so many CAMERAS and Angles, you can see perfectly, which can not be seen or noticed on the field.

What about Malinga...

After hearing the news that PCB pulls more that 40 players for chucking, I was bit surprise. Not because of the numbers but by the proactive nature of PCB.
However by one concern, one concern is What about player like L Malinga from SriLanka. The entire world knows he chucks & chucks very shamelessly. Are these so call Cricket Guru sleeping when they see his action.
I might be sounding sarcastic, but a fact is fact enough players have been accused & criticized for their bowling action.
The bottom line is that Why no one talks anything Malinga's bowling action. His teammate Muralitharan has faced the axe couple of times If Malingas bowling
action is passed by ICC. I want to know on basis is his action has been given

Warm Regards

I guess malinga's action is valid under the 15 deg rotation principle. If you notice him carefully, he does not bend him arm. I guess that's matter closed for him.

Malinga does not chuck. His action is slingshot action. It is perfectly legal. It doesn't look good on the TV but doesn't mean he is chucking. You would say Mcgrath/Pollack does not chuck but they actually bend their arm by 11-12 degrees. ICC has already found this out during 2004 champions trophy. Problem is with the eyes of people who watch cricket. If they do not like some action, they call it as chucking. That is not correct.
