Saqlain skips question about Harbhajan bowling action


Former Pakistani off spinner Saqlain Mushtaq was given a tough question by Dr. Nouman Niaz when he asked him his take on the bowling action of Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh. Saqlain skipped it away saying that it is not his duty to judge that.

Saqlain did not even want to give his opinion on this issue. Saqlain is the one Pakistani who has worked a lot with a few bowlers like Hafeez and Ajmal in their bowling action issues. Saqlain also had worked closely wit the biomechanical equipment and how the theory and practical is done in this department.

He surely knows and his impression was giving a clear indication that he was not satisfied with the bowling action of Harbhajan Singh. In the past, this controversy has been raised a lot of times. Indian off spinners Ashwin and Harbhajan have doubtful bowling actions.

The bend in their bowling arms clearly shows a lot of curves and not exaggerating from 15 degrees is definitely impossible with this much bend in the arm. But then again we all know ICC favors BCCI a lot and as a result team, India always gets away in this issue.

Glenn McGrath even said that there is no need to be judgmental on this issue. He said that let the ICC decided about it. Rashid Latif also wanted to move on from this question because everyone knows that the bowling actions on both Ashwin and Harbhajan are faulty but then again power is with the BCCi and they control the ICC so don’t expect actions against the two Indians.
