It will be unfair if the fast bowlers receive too much flak on these flat tracks. Some edges of short balls of Aaron had gone for fours. Bowled decently till the third over. That last ball choice of bowling short was bad. Needs to get more accurate at bowling short balls as he one bowler who persists with that back of the length attack with some short balls. Surprisingly none of the bowers today were capable of bowling yorkers including Morkel. Morkel dint even try bowling. Aaron tried but missed the mark.

Pacers who have impressed me so far: aaron (as always) anureet singh (unknown guy but full of confidence, beautiful death bowling conceding just 4 runs in 20th over against faulkner of all people) ishwar pandey - should be in indian xi in some format. looks good if he can maintain pace Bhuvi is dissapointing. Needs to rehab or something, not the same. Work on swing and pace. Get fitter, eat more and get to 135kph consistently.

Sandeep Sharma is very good in this match' date='can swing it both ways with decent pace[/quote'] He's very good. And he never fails to perform in any format. I think an India call up has to be just around the corner.

booby did well :two_thumbs_up:
If Booby gets to bowl at death. he will do much better in international ODIs too. On most pitches, bowlers like Shami pick most of their wickets at the death, not upfront

No speed guns today :sad: .anyway I think booby and boult were good today,anything less than 8 rpo is good for pacers bowling up front and at the death on this joke of a ground. Aaron was poor but his landing was a major problem today,couldn't get the proper alignment of the body while landing hence bowled some filth,in general bowling was poor today by rcb and this pitch is most certainly a graveyard for pacers unless there's some live grass on it

Sandeep Sharma, Ashish Nehra and Pawan Suyal have looked best so far in the T20 format. Sandeep for the initial overs, and the other two with their yorkers at the death. Anureet also bowled yorkers consistently at the death but at a slower pace.

Allan Donald talks about bowling in T20s

A lot of things go through your mind when you just been hit for two sixes. A lot of emotions creep in. That is why we tell the leaders of the group, Darren Sammy and AB de Villiers, to go and speak to the bowler. There is the 15-second chill where the bowler walks back to the mark and during this period a lot of gremlins sit on your shoulder and dictate to you 'bowl this, bowl that. It is in this frame of mind, Donald believes, the bowler "clearly" has no plan. He says this based on personal experience.
He then goes about explaining how it went wrong in the game against SRH
Such a scenario did play out on Monday against Sunrisers in the Powerplay. Warner and Shikhar Dhawan ran roughshod over the Royal Challengers' trio of Sean Abott, Harshal Patel and Varun Aaron. After two overs, Sunrisers were 36 for 0. Aaron then delivered a tight third over, giving away just five runs including a boundary. It was followed by an even tighter over by Abu Nechim Ahmed, who gave just two runs. But instead of tightening the leash, Aaron got distracted by the wetness of the crease as he was repeatedly cleaning the sole of his boots with the bail. First ball of the next over, Warner stuck a powerful loft over the bowler's head for a four. Next ball, Aaron dug in short and Warner just swiveled quickly to pull it over midwicket for another our. Agitated, Aaron repeated the shorter delivery and Warner cut it over thirdman for a six. Aaron just smiled helplessly. Crucial in this period, Donald pointed out, was for the senior players to put an arm around the bowler and calm him down. "Rather than leaving the bowler on his own we often ask senior guys to talk to him. AB does brilliantly. He runs in from wherever he is fielding to check with the bowler what is his plan. You know that the next two balls to finish the over is crucial. And how you get out of the over is even more crucial.
I know what it is like bowling in partnerships with Shaun Pollock and when he wasn't there how it affected the balance of the team simply in terms of the X-factor from the both ends. Starc also brings the best out Varun Aaron. I know that for a fact. They bowl well together. They bowl hard in the middle overs as a partnership.
On quick bowling..
Pace is a big factor. If it goes wrong, the ball goes to the fence. But, having said that, these guys take you wickets," Donald said. You can't tell these guys how to be very tight in the channel and be conservative. These guys need to be given the licence to take you wickets and win you games and they are going to go for a few. And this why they are strike bowlers.

Does Kohli ever go and talk to his bowlers? Have not seen him do that in this year's IPL. If not him then ABD should take over that role. This is crucial as there aren't many experienced bowlers in their side.

Aaron is not getting the length right. He is mostly too short on these pitches and also giving width.

Bhuvi bowled better' date=' but looked like he ran out of steam. Its just 20 overs game. Lol. He has a long way to go if he wants to play at the highest level. With such fitness levels, he shouldn't be playing for India.[/quote'] How did you feel he ran out of steam?....Just have to say something negative for the heck of it.

Ehh? You defend him just for the heck of it. Not me. I want him to do well. But, he looked really tired and he lost pace in the final overs. He should try to become a fast bowler, eat something healthy, put on some weight.

He did NOT lose steam he was bowling with a shorter run up and within himself to pitch the ball exactly where he wanted

He was tired. It was quite evident from his body language. Its just a t 20 match. Its time he gives importance to fitness. Even Michael holding who had dinner with Indian fast bowlers in England said that bhuvi was not eating healthy for a fast bowler.
