England Cricket team and Grumpy Former cricketers can also overlap in my opinion..
Half of the England side is also taking the support of doosra illegal, that's not fair after clarification from ICC
Oh -- and the England team seem to be about the only people in the cricketing community right now who are studiously _not_ talking about this. Elements of the English media are, for sure, but it's a bit harsh on the team to blame them. They've made no accusations of any kind.
I've no time for Bob Willis' curmudgeonly attitude. It's been shown time and time again, though, that it's impossible to bowl the doosra without bending the arm. If, as the cricketing community, we're fine with that (and it seems that the majority are) then let's change the rules again so that it's legal. Debate over. Mind you, I feel exactly the same about slow over-rate, too. Why have the rule if you never enforce it? Either enforce it, or do away with the rule, I say.
This was definitely one of your better ones! I hope Andrew Hughes takes a look at this and develops a true sense of humour.
Excellent..poor willis and off course Bedi..:p
Awesome! The makers of this comic are obviously in a rich venn of form...
Excellent!!! and Hilarious. I think that the entire circle of England team (or a significant portion of it) should have been inside Grumpy Cricketers one!
Hahaha. Bedi fits right into all four circles.
Most bowlers who bowl the doosra, bowl it with a bent arm it seems. whether its legal or not is a matter of opinion, maybe the icc should do a study on it so it can be dealt with one way or another for good and stop this disscuision every time england, australia or south africa come up against someone who bowls like this. Personally if the arm is bent it is illegal no matter what or all bowlers should throw it. a person i played against threw an off cutter at around 80mph it was unplayable if you had never faced him before, but you learnt to watch the elbow. Diagram is brilliant, Bob Willis is just grumpy full stop.
