KKR sign Warrier for injured Nagarkoti

Recommended Posts

Sandeep Warrier, who went unsold at the auction, has been signed by Kolkata Knight Riders for the upcoming edition of IPL. The move comes after an injury to Kamlesh Nagarkoti.

 

 

Warrier picked up eight wickets in six games - with a hat-trick against Andhra - at an economy of 5.81 for Kerala in the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 tournament. KKR will be his second IPL franchise, the first being Royal Challengers Bangalore, where he was for three seasons from 2013 to 2015 but didn't get a chance to play.

 

 

The extent of the injury to Nagarkoti isn't known yet. The pacer had missed the last season as well because of a foot injury.

 

 

KKR start their campaign with a home game against Sunrisers Hyderabad on March 24.

 

Shivam Mavi is also going to miss this year IPL due to stress fracture.

This Nagarkoti has been injured since he stood out in the U-19 WC.

 

Going by how our management handles things and the usual script for most promising Indian fast bowlers, this is how it will work

 

He will come with a remodeled action and 10ks slower and after 3-4 years at age 24 will top the domestics with his new dibble dobbly seamers.

 

After consistent performances for 3-4 years will finally get a shot at age 27-28 when he is even slower by 5 more ks.

 

Eventually a hack will end his career in one of the bilateral ODIs or T20s

I thought Nagarkoti had a back injury. What kind of foot injury takes such a long time to heal?

Foot injury was in IPL. Back injury happened later. He had back issue even before u19 WC but recovered just before WC. Now Mavi also has suffered stress fracture of the back.

So Mavi also won't play in this IPL?

Yes, both are out of the IPL.

I hope both recover quickly and bowl with the same pace that they used to do.

 

Nathu Singh also suffered a stress fracture before and this season made a comeback but not sure about his bowling speeds this season.

So all the under19 pace bowlers in the same team are out. Do we have any young speed merchants??

what do you mean by young?  Stress fractures happen to most tearaways around the world.  it is good if it happens early on.  Like in case of Waqar who got stress fracture late in his career and lost his pace after that.  Early stress fractures do not often lead to loss in pace like in case of Brett Lee, Mitch Johnson, Mitch Starc, Aaron and Umesh.  All had these early.  Johnson hade 4 stress fractures by the time he was 22.

Nathu was bowling quite quick this Ranji trophy but was still far away from his best when it comes to consistency and rhythm.  He is a big talent as well, was hitting 145K 2 years back on his IPL debut.

Yes, hopefully Nathu Singh gets few games for Delhi this IPL.

I remember reading once that stress fracture at a younger age is good for fast bowlers because he returns stronger after recovery, especially the part of the body affected by it. But stress fracture in older bowlers harms them, slows them down. Dunno if it is broscience or has scientific explanation, but there are cases of young quicks developing stress fracture and their pace not suffering after healing, in fact them even doing better post comeback.

Lillee was one guy who had stress fracture in his back at a young age (22-23) and then had a long, successful career post comeback. Even Waqar did good, pace increased post his 1st stress fracture in 1991-92. 

Lillie actually lost pace after his stress fracture in 1973,  he was quick from 1971-1973.  Aaron had 3-4 stress fractures ibut still bowls 145.

Didn't see him live obviously, but from what I read/heard he only lost pace in late 70s. Only those who followed his career live can give an accurate picture.

He was the Australian version of Ashwin, Infact a smarter version, saala Sc series se phat jaati thi iski. That is why I rate Haddlee and Marshall as 2 of the best of all time.

 

Any way mad mad respect for what he did for Indian pace bowling though

Yeah I find him overrated too. But he made fast bowling popular, him and Andy Roberts were the pioneers. An entire generation of outstanding genuine quicks followed inspired by these 2.

Just like Jermaine Blackwood,Ben Duckett, Matt Renshaw became future ATGs right?  

 

Some folks should know when to quit reading the "future".

Agarkar with similar frame hardly ever had injury. Same way Sharma is "uninjurable"

Agarkar was an incredible athlete. After Kapil Dev was probably the first fast bowler who was an incredible fielder.

 

Ishu is built like a horse literally.

 

I thought Nagarkoti was built the same way with the ease he was hitting 145+ in U-19. Had a pretty smooth action too, may be a freakish injury. He can bat and field. Infact Both him and Mavi, refreshing to see multi dimensional cricketers given the one dimensional crap we have playing for the senior side.

Nagarkoti is better fielder than any fast bowler we ever had. He is one of the most athletic cricketers we have currently but stress fractures have nothing to do with being athletic. You won't find more athletic fast bowlers than Brett Lee, James Anderson and Mitchell Johnson in modern era and all had stress fractures. Even Shivam Mavi is a good athlete and fielder.

 

Even the fastest athlete on planet Usain Bolt gets injuries. So being athletic doesn't make you injury free.

True bro, but the concern is that Nagakoti has already taken one year to recover and he is still not fit, we dont know at what level was he injured and why is it taking so long and just hoping that when he and Mavi comes back to full fitness they should be able to bowl at the same pace they are known to bowl. 

 

Many of our previous fast bowlers lost pace like Munaf Patel, and when promising young bowlers lose pace is not a good sign like Khaleel Ahmed.

Stress fractures do take 6 months to a year to heal. Nothing new or surprising about it.
