I wonder how many 'spinners' wickets on a saturday are basically just lobbing it up and waiting for a batsmen to hole out at long on/moo corner.... I'd imagine most.

Yes, when you have a bad shoulder like mine, that is what you are compelled to do. It works too. :D

So considering how ineffective Ajmal has become after being stopped from throwing, does that mean he's actually never legitimately taken any international wickets? Should his name have an * next to it?

His first 4 overs the other day only went for 7 runs didn't they? And then suddenly the next 6 went for 60 odd.

I think you're right there. I can only imagine they played the reputation to begin with and realised he didn't carry the same threat he did before

Sad to see somebody struggle but at some point he was badly advised. I don't imagine Ajmal started off chucking it, I think his early career wasn't that great. All of a sudden he becomes unplayable for 4/5 years. Action fixed and he's back to being average. Must be hard when you feel like a world beater one minute and dropped the next.

fault is with the umpires, cricket boards, pakistan board and the ICC. They should be picking up on these players almost immediately upon entering the pro circuit. Nip it in the bud before they've made their millions

I wonder how long he will go on until he decides to cut his losses and retire from the game? He could retire soon with most of his reputation intact (possibly) or try and prove himself to the doubters for one last hurrah. He's 37 now and not getting any younger?
