No ball that changed the game: Murali controversy (Adelaide)

Cricket's law-makers have struggled to come to grips with the controversy over Muralidaran's action after a day of controversy at Adelaide in 1999. After tests in 2004 revealed most bowlers illegally straightened their arms, the law was changed from allowing no straightening to a 15-degree tolerance level. "I haven't changed my view in 15 years - he doesn't deserve the record," said Ross Emerson, who was banished from international cricket after no-balling Muralidaran in a one-day game against England in Adelaide in January, 1999.
