re-what is a cheat?

In cricket terms someone that goes against the laws of cricket. Taking drugs
on the prohibited list being one such case. Therefor Warnie is a cheat and
it will always be on his record. Put that in your pipe and smoke it. Ops
sorry is that a banned drug. So far Muri is not a cheat because he hasn't
bowled his now illegal delivery. And until he does he is not a cheat.

Um, no, but I'll let that slide for now...

Yep.

Wrong. He has (several times) been called for bowling illegal deliveries in
his career. Therefore, by your logic, he is a cheat.

Well sorry to correct you old chum but there is nothing about drugs in
the laws of cricket.

In addition to this the ICC does not have a drugs policy (it did have
one for the WC, but not outside of the WC)

What Warne did was breach his contract with CA.

Sri Lanka and several other countries do not have a drug policy or
testing regime.

Warne would not have been tested had he been Sri Lankan.

What is?

Tobacco is not a banned substance.

And from what I can work out Marry Jane wouldn't be tested for in
countries like say Sri Lanka.

Amazing then that even pro Murali writers like Charlie Austin have
said he has.

>And until he does he is not a cheat.

Well it appears he has so I guess you will be labeling Murali a cheat.

Wrong...he's been bowling it during the one games against
Zimbabwe...against the advice of Sri Lankan cricket officials.

Everyone is aware that Shane Warne cheated by taking illegal substances. He
served his suspension for that. You may not be aware but Murali has bowled
his illegal ball since the report was given to Sri Lanka. Does this make
him a cheat? It seems to if we use your definition. I'm still waiting for
him to suffer the appropriate penalty ie being no balled.
