As soon as i saw the title, I knew what it was about. I think we already discussed this in some thread few days ago!?

Richie Benaud was very angry at the end and rightly so.

معلوم ہے باولنگ کو باولنگ کیوں کہتے ہیں؟ کیوں کے پہلے سارے باولرز انڈر آرم یعنی بازو کے نیچے سے باول کرتے تھے باولنگ گیم کی طرح اور ایسا تقریبا پہلی جنگ عظیم تک چلتا رہا۔

This ball was the reason under arm bowling was banned by ICC later on.


Quote:The notorious underarm delivery that created, One of the most controversial moments in World Cricket history is still hard to revisit after more than three decades.

The controversial bowl triggered a Cold war between the two nations after the infamous day on February 1 when New Zealand needed six runs with one ball remaining to draw the match.

But Aussie skipper Greg Chappell instructed the bowler, who was his younger brother Trevor, to deliver the ball underarm in a bid to prevent batsman Brian McKechnie any chance of hitting a six.

This is not entirely true. Under arm bowling is still allowed but both captains have to agree on it before start of match. Here is relevant portion of ICC Law 21 on this issue.


Quote:21.1 Mode of delivery

21.1.1 The umpire shall ascertain whether the bowler intends to bowl right handed or left handed, over or round the wicket, and shall so inform the striker.

It is unfair if the bowler fails to notify the umpire of a change in his/her mode of delivery.  In this case the umpire shall call and signal No ball.

21.1.2 Underarm bowling shall not be permitted except by special agreement before the match.

21.2 Fair delivery – the arm

For a delivery to be fair in respect of the arm the ball must not be thrown.

A ball is fairly delivered in respect of the arm if, once the bowler’s arm has reached the level of the shoulder in the delivery swing, the elbow joint is not straightened partially or completely from that instant until the ball has left the hand.  This definition shall not debar a bowler from flexing or rotating the wrist in the delivery swing.

Although it is the primary responsibility of the striker’s end umpire to assess the fairness of a delivery in this respect, there is nothing in this Law to debar the bowler’s end umpire from calling and signalling No ball if he/she considers that the ball has been thrown.
