The underarm bowling event etc etc......
The difference is that Oz used these tactics to advance themselves.

Be fair !! - the underarm bowl was to prevent the Kiwis from even having a chance to equal or exceed the Oz total. It was the last ball of the match - it was shameful, unsportsmanlike and a disgrace to cricket.
A fairer way would have been to have allowed the Oz bowler to have played fairly to his man and let the batsman and bowler determine the outcome of the match. The underarm bowl stank then and it stinks now.

I notice that both you and JR have studiously avoided answering my previous comment Also JR, one would have to ask whether the Oz captain would have chosen to have adopted the same tactics as Fleming did if he were in the same position - funny that !!
Of course !! - we all know what the answer would be don't we ??
