This story may get big, so lets start straight with what it is..
Adam Gilchrist, Aussie wicket keeper made squashing (I mean smashing) 149 runs in the world cup 2007 final against Srilankans. His century came off only 72 balls. now the secretary of Sri Lanka cricket - K Mathivanan has come out to question the "squash ball" Australian wicket keeper was wearing inside his gloves as he blazed those thirteen 4s and six 6s - the fastest century of cricket WC final history.
Note : Squash ball is made of vulcanished rubber with polymers &synthetic to develop low resilience. Meaning, higher degree of energy used to deform it (press it in simple words). Having Squash ball inside his gloves, the air & squash inside gilchrist gloves with were releasing more power whenever the cricket ball hit his bat. Very similar to spring press-n-release. See the picture.
I did a little googling, and found this formal letter to International cricket council (ICC) by a certain Bodipala Wijeyesinghe, who explains what exactly is law 2000 code 2 2003 of cricket played under ICC. and how Adam Gilchrist cheated on 28th April, with why he demands Australian cricket should give away their World Cup to Srilanka & Ponting Gilchrist should be banned. He claims cricket is obliged to be played under sportsmen spirit, so this out-of-ordinary advantage by world champions isn't correct.
Huff, that's some allegations Mr Bodipala. to start with a positive note to you - Australian batsman (Ricky Ponting in particular) was questioned for the Kukaburra bats he was using. ICC did find something wrong inside that bat, and it was done away with during Ashes series late last year. During February's Comonwealth Bank series - one of Australian assistant coach was regularly spotted moving around the boundary as his team bowled and fielded. He had a wireless ear phone with him, constantly talking to inside man - coach John Buchanan. Very recently, I was watching a bbc interview with a certain 'very high official' of Australian sports management (sorry can't remember his name) when he talked strongly about Aussie determination to be the best in whatever sport they compete at International level.
Reports were generated upon Australians doing genetic tests to spot fast bowling talent at much early age. This all is good as far as sports is concerned, but honestly, Australian cricket must not try to manipulate existing rules and the the ones which are not written.
On a negative note to Bodipala, I don't really think Australia should hand over their Cup to Srilanka, neither Ponting Gilchrist should be banned. That practically don't seem possible, nor it will be correct. Australia have not done anything against the rule, but something that's isn't in the rule.
But ICC should wake up now, and give some strict warning to Australian cricket. Their rule manipulation might just have gone too far this time.
