Ex-Pak players call on ICC for ‘illegal action’ menace

Reacting on the growing list of ‘chuckers’ in world cricket, former Pakistan players have called on the ICC with various suggestions to curb the menace while striking the right balance between bat and ball. Pakistan <g data-gr-id="14">have</g> been at the receiving end of many illegal bowling actions being reported by the international board as off-spinner Bilal Asif became the latest bowler to be found of chucking during the Zimbabwe series.

Cricketer-turned-commentator Ramiz Raja believes that a bowler’s illegal action is certainly a setback for the concerned board, but said that ICC should strike the right balance between bat and ball to keep the sport competitive.

“There is no doubt that the reporting of Bilal Asif’s action is big setback for Pakistan cricket and there is no doubt when a player is reported from an international match it spoils the image of the concerned board,” Ramiz said. The former captain pointed out that once a bowler’s action is reported, problems arise for him.
