Bishan Singh Bedi: What he said, really meant and definitely did not

Bishan Singh Bedi Is Five Degrees Or Less

What he said (via IBNLive):

“I believe in clean action. I belong to traditional cricket. I don’t believe in 15 degrees of all such nonsense.”

Bishan Singh Bedi is still not convinced of the validity of Shoaib Akhtar’s and Muttiah Muralitharan’s bowling actions.

The left-armer famously termed them “javelin throwers”.

Bedi currently manages the Jammu & Kashmir Ranji team.

What he really meant:

“Either you’re chucking or you’re not.Hyperextension—what’s that?”

What he definitely didn’t:

“I’d love to coach javelin throwers. They’d make great bowlers; the right bio-mechanics are already in place. And the doosra is right up their alley.”
