As the world was gearing up for the iPhone 6 launch on Tuesday, there was a small flutter in the cricket world. Earlier in the day, Saeed Ajmal, the Pakistan off-spinner was banned by the International Cricket Council (ICC) as his action was deemed illegal upon testing conducted by the body. Of course, numerous Pakistan fans are shocked. At the same time, there are a few bowlers who are a bit concerned, not because Ajmal is banned, but with the revelations of the Iphone 6 features and specifications.

Sources within Apple said on the condition of anonymity, “ With the iPhone 6, we wish to take mobile-phone technology to a new level. Already, it has become a vital part of our lives. Thus, we have introduced a unique specification in the system. This feature can detect suspect actions on the field of play.”

So, how does one use this feature? Simple. As a bowler runs in, use your iPhone camera to record the action and within seconds the feature would tell you would tell you the degree. Anyone can use it and now it is up for sale across the world. “Abhi baccha-baccha jaan jaayega ki kaun chuck karta hai, (Hindi for: Every kid will know who chucks)” said a concerned bowler.

Meanwhile, Bishan Singh Bedi, the former left-arm spinner, who has often spoken openly against suspect actions, has already ordered an iPhone 6. He is said to be very excited at the launch of this product.
