Ashwin's YouTube channel

Recommended Posts

I watched the Murali one for ~ 15 min.

 

Ashwin is full of praise for Arjuna Ranatunga's handling of the throwing situation with Murali and how important it was to back his guy.  This brings up another question:  while Ranatunga did the right thing by backing his guy in public, can anyone who is being honest say that Murali was not chucking?  That it is possible to bowl the doosra without bending your elbow?  That everyone from Murali to Harbhajan to Saqlain to Ajmal weren't chucking while delivering the doosra?  That a sub-set of Murali's wkts shouldn't have an * next to them?  

 

We must fully back Ashwin for standing up for the non-striker backing-up rule.  By the same token, shouldn't he also be calling out bowlers for getting wickets with chucked deliveries?

Watching some of the bowlers' actions today, I think I might have created a monster.

That's how you do it. That's how you bring the oldest & a classical language to the wider cricketing world. :thumb:

We mustn't shy away from using local language. Ever see Messi trying to give an English interview to Western media? Even Federer who is super fluent in English often uses Swiss German or French. Enough resources to hire top translators, provide subs in videos etc.
