Pointless trundler...please don’t ever bring him up in the scheme of things...cannon fodder bowler

even Kaul went for 51 in 3 overs against DD, could have ended up 60 plus had he bowled 4th. To be honest, Thampi has regressed since last year.

Aren't there better batsman/finishers in domestic cricket than Sarfaraz. This hack played those ramp shots again and was really lucky. I cannot believe how dumb and retarded these franchise scouts  management are. Or is it that there are no finishers?

Loved the way ABD, Moeen, CDG and Sarfraz tonked him. Sarfraz in particular treated him like spinner playing the scoop shot very easily twice. Brilliant innovation.

 

Also impressive was the way RCB identified him as the weakest bowler in the attack and launched him into stands ball after ball to score 70 runs of his 4 overs without giving him a wicket. Worst IPL spell ever in IPL history.

Another bowler, whose strength was the yorker,  is being coaxed to try lots of slower balls as per new theory.

 

We saw Siraj suffer in T20Is due to this. Nehra has mentored him well in this IPL and he is now bowling with a clearer mind with high % of faster balls which is his strength.  Same with Umesh.

 

If coaches want seamers whose USP is slower balls and variations then only those seamers should be selected.

 

Young pacers should be allowed to bowl with a clear mind and bowl to their strengths ...  like Nehra is encouraging to do.

Kaul not getting thrashed is the surprise lol Getting thrashed is expected. Sandeep in swinging conditions, with new ball is handy. Otherwise he would go for runs as well.

What were Thampi's speeds today?

11  of his 24 balls were slower deliveries ... which is not his strength.

But the problem is even his length was poor...in fact a 140k ball half pitched is comparatively much easier to hit than a poorly concealed slower ball.

Yes ...  his length was poor today.  And that often happens when a young pacer has to try things he is not comfortable doing. His rhythm gets messed up and he is confused.

 

Thampi impressed last IPL bowling those attempted inswinging yorkers at will , puntuated with some bouncers and slower balls.

Talentless youngsters are no different from washed up hasbeens.

 

just like old age doesn’t mean “experience” young doesn’t mean “potential”

 

Anyways I have never been impressed by this guy and looks like a brainless trundler...If he serves humble pies than great but for that he has to grow a billion times in stature from where he is today in terms of talent which means a special cricketer..will bet $100 that is not he case but let us see

Shardul Thakur is a better bowler than Thampi. Unfortunately pace blinds people on ICF. In any case, both are not Goodenough.

Both bowls at the same pace.  So, it is not like Thampi is bowling 150. Both bowls in that same 137-143K bracket but Thampi can bowl good yorkers, but yesterday he bowled too many slow balls.

currently shardul is more skilled and experienced. But with time thampi will gain both

We have seen so many times in domestic n ipl, cricketers do face problem in their 2nd or 3rd season . T20 is a difficult format for bowlers and pace can become an enemy to.  M sure bowling as a backup of someone like bhuvneshwar kumar also adds pressure and then comes abdv infront u in such a mood that to in chinnaswamy

It was not ABD who tonked him more. Rather CDG and Moeen Ali blasted his bowling. Sarfaraz too feasted nicely on his bowling.

 

Moeen started the assault in his first over itself tonking two sixers on first two balls.  Others then carried out the attack throughout his spell.

That's the point. He is a kind of bowler who will sneak in a Jaffa between filth. And there will be days where he won't even be able to do. He in that respect is similar to Umesh. Not worth investing. Umesh still is a work in progress after so many years.

Nitpicking. You know what I meant. Thampi has potential to effortlessly bowl 145 plus while Shardul best efforts can get hIm there. Keeping aside speed, Thampi isn't much skilled either other than few fluke yorkers.

Yeah, even last year he was a run leaking machine, this year he has updated it to version 2.0

 

More miss than hit.

Umesh was far more skill ful then thampi when he came in but calling thampi, thampi has skills for LOI he will get with time as he ll gain experience and develop variation .

But dismissing him is so wrong
