Sydney – First Ashes Test destroyer Mitchell Johnson has denied that his short-pitched bowling to the England tail should be classified as dangerous bowling despite admitting that Australia had a plan to go really hard at the tailenders.

According to Fox Sports, Johnson pointed out that he was just playing the game within the rules.

He added that bowlers get two short balls an over, over the shoulder and he definitely used them, and that he used the wicket to its potential because a fast, bouncy Gabba wicket is a perfect time to use it.

Johnson further said that he did not think it was dangerous at all, adding that he stayed inside the rules.

West Indies score 263/5 against India

Former India cricketer Vinod Kambli, who suffered a heart attack on Friday while driving and was taken to hospital by a traffic police officer, is stable and being monitored in the intensive care unit of the Lilavati Hospital in Mumbai. "He is in the intensive care unit and we are monitoring his medical parameters," hospital director Narendra Trivedi told reporters. "He is stable and there is nothing to worry about," he added. Kambli's wife, Andrea, also issued a statement saying her husband was stable and recovering. "He experienced chest pain in the morning, after which he was taken to the hospital. He's stable and recovering well," she said. Kambli was driving from Chembur to Bandra when he suffered the attack. He was taken to the hospital by a lady traffic officer. Reportedly, Kambli, 42, underwent angioplasty on two of his blocked arteries at the same hospital in July 2012, but the surgery was kept well under wraps. Kambli, who played 17 Tests and 104 ODIs for India, is known for his flashy lifestyle and friendship with batting legend Sachin Tendulkar, which hasn't been on cordial terms of late. More recently, Kambli was in news due to his emotional outburst against Sachin, saying that the two are no longer friends. Kambli was hurt because Sachin didn't mention his name in his farewell speech and then didn't invite him to the farewell dinner he hosted after retirement.
