Nothing wrong with Harbhajan's doosra, says Muralitharan

SYDNEY, DEC. 22. Sri Lankan spin wizard Muttiah Muralitharan does not think there is anything wrong in Harbhajan Singh's doosra, reported as suspect by ICC Match Referee Chris Board this week.

``With the naked eye, I can't see anything wrong with it. I don't think there is a problem,'' Murali was quoted as saying in the Sydney Morning Herald on Wednesday.

Murali said he also feared that constant scrutiny of spinners who bowl the doosra could deter young bowlers from experimenting with the delivery in future.

``Definitely it could,'' Murali said. ``If that happens, it would be a loss for the game. I don't know what the thinking is with umpires and Match Referees with this — it is obviously a very sensitive issue, because you are dealing with bowlers' careers. But I think (doosra) is good for the game.'' — PTI
