"Johan's arms aren't straight when they hang by his sides. They are naturally bent at the elbow. He has a natural deformity."
"You have to bend your elbow to bowl it, but in my case it starts bent and stays that way."
Bruce Elliott, the UWA professor who is also the ICC biomechanist, had made an interesting discovery in his dealings with finger spinners. "He said he had found that a lot of bowlers from the subcontinent could bowl the doosra legally, but not Caucasian bowlers," Barnes said.
"There are other guys out there who bowl the doosra who should be sent for testing. Let's see how they shape up under the new regulations."
Not a chucker, just a poor deformed bastard.
