Speed & Performance of Indian and Foreign Speed Merchants in IPL 2019

Recommended Posts

As always I am creating the Speed and Performance of Pacers in IPL2019 - Indian and foreign.

 

As every year, all of you have contributed generously to my article every year and I expect the same. Some folks who have really contributed to the speed threads have been express, rkt and so many of you. I will write a separate thank you note at the end of the  IPL 2019.

 

Needless to say, I am very excited as always starting this thread. my excitement of IPL is not about batting but about fast bowling, as i was a fast bowler ( tried to bowl fast ) from 18 to 26 and then I realized it is better to turn into a batsman.

 

fast bowling is tiring and very exciting.

 

I encourage all of you to be a BIT watchful and share more technicals about the fast bowlers like-

not just Speed, but Swing too. Skills like good yorkers angles in fast bowling, usage of crease, show of anger and competitiveness, Slow Ball Skills( slow ball as a change ball or overusing the slow ball) etc. 

some bouncers show as 135K but look 145k , i will encourage such balls to be noticed and shared. some most beautiful yorkers getting wickets and some not getting wickets should also be noted and shared. Some good balls which are snicked and slip fielders mess Up should also be highlighted as the fast bowler has done his job well, but bcos the fielder was not alert the catch was messed up.

Some SLOGS are ugly and fast bowlers should get the credit as those are wicket taking balls and just that the fielder was not at the right place, catch was missed.

 

I hope green Pitches are offered so that genuine batsman score runs and the SLOGGERS find the going tough.

wish you all the best.

 

can all of you share the Pacers that we need to focus on for each team in IPL...

Aniket Choudhary is unsold. Asif KM from CSK is another bowler who can bowl quick.

if the franchisees have no interest in him, it kinda means that he has definitely declined, Any views.

i have purposefully not indicated jaydev unadkat , siddharth kaul , Mohit, may be I am biased but they can also Spark and succeed in IPL.

 

Sid Kaul has failed each and every time he has got to play for India though he has done fairly well in IPL. Kinda Indicates he is not international material. even that Punjab swing pacer SID Sharma failed was considered not worth playing for India.

 

I think this IPL will bring Aniket Rajpoot, Navdeep Saini, Siraj, Umesh , ishant,  Avesh and Varun Aroon into the limelight.

Read an interview of rahane..when he was in Indian team in Australia, he called umesh yadav as fastest in the world at the moment ( he said in 2018 December)..possibly umesh bowls fast in nets and slower in matches.

What a raddi pitch to start the IPL. Curator needs serious spanking for this farce of a pitch. Ball turned big. 7.2 degrees average turn today in comparison to 2.7 degree IPL average..

With the kind of pace attack they have no choice but to have rank Turner's. Visiting teams must be smarter and try to outsmart them in their own game at Chennai.

Saini bumrah with shami as a backup would be lethal attack.

Shami, Bumrah and Saini as backup instead of bhuvi only if Saini has a great IPL and earns his place. Remember international vs IPL is not comparable. Dhoni and Rayudu become champions here. Unadcut, kaul, thakur all are useful at IPL level but not international. Note.  Not comparing Saini to these bowlers. Just making a point IPL isn't the right metric.

A bowler with pace if he has half decent accuracy will do well at any level.

I think Umesh has half decent accuracy. We need more accuracy like Bumrah. So correct statement is :

A bowler with pace if he has half decent accuracy can do well at any level.

Umesh has no accuracy.  Shami is half decent accurate. Bumrah is decent accurate. Only likes of McGrath/Hazlewood were/are real accurate bowlers.

It will be interesting to see how saini bowls at the death. So far he has shown descent control with new ball and pace.

If he has good enough skills to bowl in last part of the match then he should def. find a place in the team irrespective of his performance.

Even if Saini bowls well upfront,takes wickets doesn't go for plenty can be considered well above others in the pecking order and should be a contender for a spot
