Darrell Hair on Asterisk of Galle:
"A couple of current umpires have said to me 'There is definitely something wrong with his action, but I'm not going to call him'. They are the ones who have to live with that. If you're an umpire you're meant to uphold the law so both teams get a fair shake. There's been some umpires who think, 'I'm on a good wicket here, I'm making good money, I won't rock the boat'. It's not my style, it's obviously theirs."
[This sentence is not online] "I think there has been a too hard basket for a lot of umpires and they've decided to let it slide."
Chloe Saltau in today's Age on how cricket's officials have been paralysed into inaction:
MATCH officials are so reluctant to report flawed bowling actions that in-game testing represents cricket's last hope to confront the politically charged throwing issue.
