Olonga, playing in his first Test, was only the sixth genuine bowler to be called for throwing in a Test and the first since Australia's Ian Meckiff was penalised while playing against South Africa in Brisbane in December 1963.
But Flower insisted during yesterday's rest day: "From a wicketkeeping point of view - and I have also faced him as a batsman before - I don't believe that he throws. It's as simple as that. Some people seem to think that the delivery he was called for was a lot quicker than anything else he bowled, in which case they have got better eyes than me.''Reuse content
