    Shoaib Malik - Gets timely clearance

    Well almost timely. Although his inclusion to play against india did not bother him too much and did a fine job of the provided chance. He did manage to bowl few overs and no flags went up.
    Now its a step towards ICC approval due shortly,,,,

    Specialists clear Shoaib Malik’s bowling action

    By our correspondent






    KARACHI: Pakistan all-rounder Shoaib Malik’s off-break delivery has been cleared by bio-mechanic and bio-kinetic specialists in Cape Town after a fresh test conducted on his bowling action last month at the Sports Science Institute of South Africa.

    A Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) official said on Monday that the reports received from the institute had shown that Malik’s elbow angle extension while bowling was the off-break was well below the level of tolerance allowed by the International Cricket Council (ICC).

    "The latest tests conducted on 28 April have shown that Malik bowls his off-break at match pace of 72.1 kilometres per hour with his elbow angle extension a maximum of 13 degrees and minimum of six degrees which is well within the ICC tolerance level of 15 degrees," the official said. "The tests were conducted under the supervision of Professor Tim Knokes who is a human movement science expert and they were other experts of biomechanics, bio-kinetics and sports analyst on his team," he added. "The tests were conducted in match conditions with Malik’s ‘doosra’ delivery also tested and it also came within the ICC limit of 15 degrees that bowlers can extend their elbows or straighten their arms while bowling."

    However sources in the Board said there was some inconsistency noted in Malik’s elbow angle extension while bowling the ‘doosra’ but it was also not a serious violation of the ICC tolerance level for bowlers.

    The PCB has obtained a fresh report on Malik’s bowling action after he resumed bowling in the one-day series against India last month. The 23-year-old Malik was reported for a suspect bowling action during a one-day triangular series final in Lahore last October by umpires Aleem Dar and Simon Taufel and match referee Chris Broad.

    After that report Malik twice underwent tests at the University of Western Australia in Perth to correct his action and the Board stopped him from bowling until on the recent tour of India where Inzamam and Woolmer decided to go ahead and get him to bowl in the last four One-day Internationals which Pakistan won.

    "After Malik resumed bowling in the one-day series in India, the Pakistan captain and coach were keen to know how much he is straightening his elbow while bowling his normal off spin delivery and how much he straightens his elbow while bowling the ‘doosra’," the official confirmed.

    Asked about the PCB plans to have Malik undergo surgery to correct a deformity in his elbow and arm which causes him problems while bowling, the official said he had also been examined by a specialist for this in Cape Town but a fresh surgery to correct the problem would only be carried out after the tour of the West Indies in June.

    Malik was involved in two road accidents two years ago in which he fractured his elbow and damaged tissues in his bowling arm.

    Malik, who was recently banned for one Test and fined 75% of his match fees for two One-day Internationals by the PCB for misconduct during the Twenty20 Cup in Lahore, has taken eight Test and 99 one-day wickets.

    well this 6.5 degree evaluation is little concern for me, his angle was way below 15 degree and all of a sudden its right up with the rest of the bowlers.

    well all-in-all very good news
    hmhmmm....

          So with a 13 degree angle, he is no longer a vatta bowler? Kewl!

          By the way, how do they know the bowler is bowling with the same action in a laboratory, as he does on the cricket field?

            Thats a ligit question actualy. I guess the 3rd Umpires have no set standard or gauge to determin this and it manily depends on the 3rd Umpire's Mood, origin,
            and if the player is as such that every body hates his guts no matter what ,
            so another nail in the coffin would not hurt the caretaker.

              Yep.....I agree with you 100 percent......what happens that the experienced chuckers like Joker Harbhajan singh modify their actions to some extent during the laboratory tests but once they are back in the cricket field, they start bawling Wattas again...harbhajn singh is one of the worst chuckers i have ever seen and should be banned for ever......he will bowl couple of balls OK and then out of no-where, sardar will jerk little too much to get a wicket……and when Chris Broad will call for an investigation, the whole India media will start crying……

              The second biggest chucker is shoaib akhthar who should be banned for ever too because he also jerks his hand little too much to get that extra thrust on some balls…It is extremely unfair with the batsmen…..Forget the medical excuse.....the problem with the current set up is that it allows couple of players to bowl jerk whenever they want to and the worst part is that they keep getting wickets on those balls. This is not fair to all those bowlers who are bowling with legal action…

              The only player who has come out clean after the laboratory tests is Bret Lee who does not chuck anymore……

                For all bowlers with "birth deformities" and other natural causes that 'force' them to throw vattas, they should have a Special Cricket Cup, for Special players... It will be a pretty strong team actually, including Shoaib Akhtar, Muralitharan, Harbhajan, Shoaib Malik etc. Everyone happy!
