    Cricket-Akhtar's action questioned by umpires


    Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar's action has been called into question by two Australian umpires, The Age newspaper reported on Tuesday.

    It said umpires Terry Prue and Ross Emerson had sent a videotape of the Pakistan bowler's action to the Australian Cricket Board (ACB). The tape was made during the tourists' one-day match against Western Australia in Perth last week.

    ACB officials were not available for comment, but an ACB spokesman told The Age that no suspicions of throwing were raised in the written umpires' report from the match.

    Emerson has been exiled from international umpiring since he called Sri Lankan offspinner Muttiah Muralitharan for throwing at the Adelaide Oval last season.

    An angry Pakistan captain Wasim Akram defended his young pace bowler.

    "It's more than clean, Shoaib's action," the skipper was quoted as saying in Brisbane where Pakistan is playing a four-day match against Queensland.

    "He's the fastest bowler in the world. Do you mean all the referees all over the world who've cleared him can't see?

    "Why, when opposition come here, do people have a go at them in such a way instead of praising the talent we have? Instead it's 'oh God, he's the fastest bowler, he's going to get some wickets', and having a go at him in a negative way.

    "People should admire that the Pakistan team is full of young talent. They should enjoy the cricket."

    Wasim said that after the Muralitharan incident last season, they had been expecting something similar. Akhtar, 24, is regarded as the fastest bowler in the world and has not had his action questioned before, The Age said.

    He has played 10 tests for his country, taking 28 wickets, and 26 one-day internationals.

    Pakistan is scheduled to play the first of three tests against Australia in Brisbane starting on Friday

    Here we go again, the age old habit of Aussies to try and put opposition under undue pressure by below the belt tactics.

      Shoaib Akhter, mention this name to Sachin Tattikar and watch his pants getting wet. Do you have a bowler who can bowl at quarter of his speed. But than what can you expect from morans like Parsad and other jokers.

        Make sure to keep some pampers ready for your team when they meet India in Australia, because Sachin, Gangully, Jadeja and Dravid are going to sheet shoaib Akhtar, Wasim Akram etc.

            Your wimp cricketers took a beating in their own backyard from the Pak heroes. Remember Shoaib blasting out Tattikar's stumps first ball in the test championship? On those bouncy pitches your batsmen will be like target practice for our speed merchants. Take plenty of ice-packs for the bruises. And don't watch it without your mommy (and her Paki boyfriend). It's gonna be X-rated.

              Mr Xtreme,

              Is your sisters and wife going to ****ed by Tendulkar, Gangully & Many more that's why you call it a X-rated. Then I will definitely watch the game.

              You wait and watch in Australia what we are going to do to the speedstar, we are going to derail him from the cricketing world.

                    This little monkey called Sajjadmotherf***er is only here to make trouble. Listen you indian asshole, you would be better off praising the real skills you indians have like good batsmen and the ability to crawl up aussie asses. your cricketers are a bunch of jealous pricks like you, that's why they pulled out of the Sharjah tournament but didn't have the balls to pull out of the world series tournament.

                      Speaking of Sharjah, I think that a triangular tournament should be set up there between Pakistan, South Africa and Australia.

                      The West Indies and Sri Lanka didn't provide us with enough of a challenge.

                      We can get away with poor fielding and running between the wickets against other teams. We need to play more matches against SA and Oz to force us to improve our game.

                      It was the two matches that Oz played against SA in this World Cup that helped them raise their game for the final. We were overwhelmed by a team that was firing on all cylinders.
