    Malinga's arm comes around the side,his arm does not flex nor extend

    A chuck needs the arm to extend,his arm is always at full extension during the bowling action

    Tate chucks,his elbow does seem to extend during the bowling action

    There were at least two balls where his arm went from bent to straight during the last part of his action. If it looks like a chuck it is a chuck

    You can do amazing things when you throw the ball

    My gf won't watch the cricket at the best of times but if he is bowling I have to turn it off.

    She reckons its baseball when is bowling and as i don't watch that any other time I needn't start now.

    Cracks me up every time.

    I've never thought malinga's action was suspect. Unusual yes, but not a throw. Maybe the odd effort ball might get ugly but that happens to quite a few fast bowlers when searching for a bit extra. Courtney walsh was one, lee and tait have their moments too. I'd be more concerned with malinga's finger spinning countrymen.
