There is a huge difference of opinion. Jardine himself called it the fast leg theory, and thought it was okay to implement it.

To counter the skill of the great Australian player Donald Bradman, who had devastated the English bowling attack during the 1930 series, Jardine adopted a tactic later to become known as Bodyline!!

It was practised by Douglas Jardine and Harold Larwood for the sole purpose of victory at any cost for the England cricket team. By employing these tactics, the min aim was to get the Australian batsmen especially Sir Don Bradman injured so that they would not be able to play.
