Navdeep Saini bowling with genuine pace now

What is brilliant about him is that he is maintaining good line and length along with pace.

 

Was bowling the 5th stump to middle stump line most of the time .... batsmen had to play him

 

Even his last 3 balls were all directed at the top of off stump

Saini has a smooth runup and bowling action. He doesn't look like he is putting too much effort and still clocking impressive speeds. He bowled in good areas throughout the day and like @express bowling mentioned good intensity even in the last session of the day. He showed he can reverse the ball as well. He is looking like a complete bowler. Very good India prospect.

Should go on SA-tour as nets bowler - but won't be able to, due to Ranji Assignment. (Ankit Rajpoot going instead). Cricinfo shows "Right arm Medium" - thats usually lesser than the 136-144 mentioned in this thread?

Just curious - are there any Rt/left Fast Medium or Rt/left Fast - in Indian domestic cricket?

Fast bowler Navdeep Saini has been doing well for our A-team and in other FC matches in recent times.  Picked up 7 wickets from 2 FC matches on the last A-tour to SA.
 
Today, in a Ranji semi-final, speeds were being shown.  As [mention=21046]Mosher[/mention]  pointed out in the Ranji thread, his speeds were
 
Fastest      144.4 k
Average    138.6 k
 
Bowled quite a few 144 k and 143 k balls.  That is very good pace in a domestic 5-day match
 
He was sustaining pace and intensity in his last spell of the day too and that is an important trait for an aspiring test pacer
 
He gets zip off the deck too, hits the bat hard and has a good bouncer.
 
Can swing and reverse swing the ball
 
Was bowling in good areas today ...... picked up 2 wickets and could have had another on a pitch not offering much movement 
 
FC stats  ... average 24.5 .... SR  53.8 .... very good
 
Should be sent to SA as a net bowler and considered as a serious contender for a future test slot.
 
 
 
 
Infact, I think he was selected as net bowler for SA.....
But because of Ranji assignment, he has to pull out....
So unfortunate...

Let's hope that....
Moreover, he looks better than few of the india's regulars....
With so many away tours, his debut looks not far...
This guy looks more ready that kaul and that Hyderabadi guy...
Not that Hyderabadi guy is bad....I really love him

Navdeep Saini has a really good action.He looks in perfect rhythm from runup to release to follow through. If he turns out a successful bowler he would be one of those whom you would pay to watch.Not following much domestic cricket these days. So thanks @express bowling for the update. :two_thumbs_up:

So, thanks to him

Watch from 1.15  to  2.15 for deliveries by Saini ..... a good length ball with great carry .... his first wicket, ball seams in at 139 k .... then a sizzling bouncer 

 

From 6.45 ... carry of the last ball before tea

 

Then from 10.15 ..... his 2nd wicket, ball seams in at pace and bowled

That ball to Tiwary was a peach. He should be next in line to play tests ahead of Shardul. 

 

Targeting  top of off stump repeatedly at around 140 k ..... what we keep on talking about

 

Getting results 

 

Should play in S.A. along with Shami and Bhuvi, IMHO

Guys, Khejroliya and Saini in one team, Shami in the other side... Do you think this is one of the finest set of fast bowlers in domestic cricket? And I am talking on a world level.

 

Shami and Porel on one side ..... Saini, Ishant, Khejroliya on the other ..... would have been superb
