Perhaps "Penalties for match fixing may include being banned from playing cricket for life." should be rewritten as "Penalties for match fixing may include being banned from playing competitive cricket for life." - I don't suppose the ICC believes it can ban someone from playing a game of cricket in a public park (say) for fun, match-fixer or not. 20:38, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

Don't tell us. Do it! Anybody with information can and should edit this article. I know it's probably too late to tell you this, but it needed to be said. -- trlkly 07:24, 20 April 2008 (UTC)

"They are also required to inform the umpire of their style of bowling eg. fast pace, leg spin... It is deemed unfair play to change the style of bowling during an over." This is completely incorrect. Law 24 (No ball) covers a bowler informing the umpire (and the umpire is required to inform the batsman) whether the bowler is right- or left-handed and which side of the wicket the bowler will deliver the ball, but there is absolutely NO requirement under Law 24 or 42 (or any other Law) that the bowler must inform the umpire of the style of bowling, as stated above.

Unfair bowling[edit]

I'm struggling to understand this sentence: "Where a delivery, after pitching passes over the head of the striker, the umpire calls no ball and includes it in his consideration of whether fast short pitched bowling is unfair, even though such a delivery is not dangerous.they get 3 cards green yellow and red."

I shall edit it to the best of my ability but I suspect someone who actually understands the game of cricket could do a better job! --Longwayround (talk) 09:34, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

No coloured cards in cricket whatsoever. Does this make better sense? If a delivery that pitches passes over the head of the striker, the umpire shall call a no ball. In Test and ODI cricket, a maximum of two "bouncers" (short-pitched deliveries that pass the batsman at or above shoulder height) may be bowled in any one over. Even though a delivery that passes the striker above head height is not inherently dangerous, it shall count as one bouncer for the over.
