Under previous conditions you would expect Steve O'Keefe to be about to issue a Professional Apology for telling chuckers to piss off, but given the current clampdown it would appear players may be freer to speak out.
Then again, it has been suggested O'Keefe has not been picked more often for national honours because he has a tendency to speak out so perhaps he always shoots from the lip:
Australia's Steve O'Keefe says spinners who bowl with bent arms deserve to be banned
Steve O'Keefe admits he feels little sympathy for suspended Pakistan counterpart Saeed Ajmal, welcoming the International Cricket Council's crackdown on chuckers he believes are "taking the piss".
"I think originally when the laws came in you were allowed zero degrees. They brought in 15 degrees to give blokes that leeway. If you go past it in my mind you've been given a little bit of room and you're going past that 15 degrees you're taking the piss."
"The rules are in place for a reason and all throughout the game guys will try and push the rules to a certain point, but I think once you step over that line you have to pay the price, whatever that is at ICC level. It's not fair, to be honest.
I'm glad that they're not going further with it ...15 degrees is enough. It should be zero, really. You should be trying to bowl with a straight arm."
The NSW left-arm orthodox was a teammate of Murali's in the Indian Premier League three years ago and is keen to resume contact with the Sri Lankan, who has been hired by Australia to train batsmen to face spin as well as mentor spinners.
"I worked with Murali when I was at Kochi for six weeks. He was good in that environment because he was playing and you could chat to him and see how he went about his business."
