Another casualty of cricket's scientifically obsolete law regarding what constitutes a legal delivery. When are the game's administrators going to wake up and accept that the 15 degree rule is unenforceable?

It's a fact of life that throwing goes on all the time. Some who do it enjoy a lucrative and successful career, while others are branded cheats and hounded out of the game. Often whether it's one or the other depends on what country and in what era the player was playing.

It's time to end the hypocrisy once and for all and let the innovators innovate, just as happened when overarm was first legalised in the 19th century.
