Right arm over, and out

Poor Bajji -- he's probably more wired up, just now, than a heart attack victim in intensive care.

The ICC site, probably unintentionally, juxtaposes two stories: One, to the effect that Bajji's action is being studied (again); the other, informing the Pakistan board that no bowler can be deemed cleared in perpetuity.

'Scuse me for asking, but how does this work, exactly? I bowl. You -- as in the ICC match referee -- call. I am tested. And cleared. I bowl. You call... ad infinitum, ad nauseum?

What does it do, do you suppose, to the poor bowler -- who, increasingly, has to bowl with one eye on the batsman, and the other on the match referee?

Bajji, that most effervescent of characters, in a rare moment of angst provides the answer.
