Speed and performance of medium pacers, trundlers and fast bowlers in Ipl

Recommended Posts

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.
Why don't you and uncle holding just shoot him ?He wasn't eating for a fastt bowler indeed....oh he wasn't eating half a cow and uncle Micheal says not healthy.Every one has a different physique.

You like him for the way he looks and not for his bowling and I don't want to discuss cricket with someone who likes a cricketer for the way he looks and not for how he plays the game. Adios.

When he runs out of steam and looks tired after bowling 4 overs, you are going to question his fitness and his food habits. When you saw him bowling @ 105-110 kph in Australia, should we not criticize him? Should we not expect him to be fit? If he gets tired after bowling 4 overs, is he good enough to play for India? Where is the improvement? Its been 3 years he is playing for India.

He was coming back from injury. Was probably tried before he was match ready.Not his decision to make...it is the team physio and team management decision. Rest is your bloody biased interpretation .You will decide if he is fit and not his team management? Thankfully you don't get to decide who plays for India or the team would be full of speed gun beaters only.Yes it has been three years out of which most was pretty good.He was the BCCi player of the year last year and India's best in England. You people like you look at him with magnifying glasses while you get your Speed gun glasses out when it is the likes of Aaron.....oh he sprayed around but he was PHAAAAASt.End of discussion.

Loads of rubbish. Yes , he was coming back from injury. Does it mean he should bowl at 105 k? My grandma would bowl faster than that crap.. Thank god that malnourished 57 kg fast bowler was not picked for any important matches in the world cup. Lesson learnt. Never discuss cricket with women. End of discussion.

What speeds did Sandeep Sharma hit today? (average speeds)
Sandeep Sharma hit 132-138 KPH range today.
Even if a pacer is just medium pace, he should be able to bowl at his own optimum pace for best results. Is Bhuvi doing that now ?
Bhuvi is bowling decently from 128 to 137 KPH with most of the balls around 135KPH. This is the normal Bhuvi range and its good to see he is still hitting 130s despite him making a comeback after an injury. This is why we need Sandeep Sharma as replacement/ rest option for Bhuvi otherwise Bhuvi is ground to dust by bowling him all-year in all Test matches, ODI, T20 and even IPL.

Yadav has had a good match so far. Bowling at 145k in his third over. Gets Maxwell of a slow delivery.
Umesh Yadav was bowling effortlessly at 145 KPH, sent some faster ones at 148 and 148.8 KPH.

Don't worry about Bhuvi, he is back to his usual speeds eventhough he is fresh after injury breaks. Bhuvi bowled mostly in 133-137 KPH in today's match, hitting Mid-130s with ease. Bhuvi should be back in Indian but should be properly rested and not overused by playing him in every test match, ODI and T20 which broke him. Sandeep Sharma should be used as like for like swing-backup for Bhuvi.

Varun Aaron bowling with pace but no control at all, hit 140-149 KPH, bowls 145+ with ease. Abu Nechim bowls at decent pace, hit 131-142 KPH with most of the deliveries in the range of 135-140 KPH.

Aaron keeps regressing. Don't think he has any future with team india.
Vaun aaron just needs more control, even Umesh Yadav was dropped by KKR and he returned back with good control , Pace and 3 wickets. Wasim Akram told in the interview that he worked on some technical aspects with Umesh which resulted in gaining control without losing pace. Wasim insisted on not dropping pace but gaining control. We just need some Desi pacer like Wasim Akram or Shoaib Akhtar to guide or make slight technical adjustments with Varun Aaron. Both Wasim and Shoaib have also helped Shami in the past to gain control with pace.

One of the important thing to bowling is first find your length and line then crank up the pace. Aaron doesn't do that. He also doesn't get the length right, always too short. No use clocking 150 when you are bowling rubbish. He isn't getting better at all in terms of control.

I hope Aaron gets it right soon. Pace and rhythm is good but he isnt hitting the right areas. More than lack of control, I thnk he is consciously bowling in areas which he thnks will work but are actually hittable and perfect for slogging. Follows 2 good length balls by a short one even if the batsman hasnt scored off the previous ball. Its as if he's doing it to avoid being predictable. This strategy is massively backfiring. I feel rather than altering his length on the shorter side, he should vary his pace a bit and not be afraid of bowling yorkers. Also i found him bowling a wide length ball when the batsman gives him a charge. This also is bad gameplan. I hope he and Donald get this sorted out.

Aaron has 2 major problems 1) He does not have a stock ball. Umesh did not have one too...developed one in the last 12 months ....and looks like a different bowler. Aaron still tries a different delivery every ball. It is strange how bad our domestic coaching is as far as bowling is concerned. 2) He gets flustered too easily after being hit or anything else happens like difficulty in landing.

I do not agree umesh never had a stock ball.He always had the out swinger problem was his length was short and he would lose his action and bowl at pads every over trying for magic ball. Aaron Also swings it as we saw england and can think a batsman out.Problem is he is bowling too short and the pitch is docile with small boundaries.

Having a stock ball would mean trying to bowl that delivery about 4 out of 6 times...especially when he is not in rhythm or not warmed up or things are not going well. Variations are tried when the bowler is in control or a specific strategy is being tried. A stock delivery is usually a good length delivery, around the off stump and is either straight or an outswinger or indipper. Ability to swing a few deliveries does not mean it is your stock ball. Did Umesh bowl the same delivery repeatedly ...even a year ago ? NO. But now...he tries that.....the good length outswinger around off stump. Aaron tries to bowl a different kind of delivery every ball...trying to surprise th batsman instead of setting him up. This is a sign of a rookie bowler. He needs guidance from someone like Akram.

Not long back Yadav looked totally out of sorts after the Sydney test. We have to persist with these bowlers and give them time to develop.
Yadav was probably the best bowler from both the side till the Sydney test.Sydney is the worst venue for yadav,he always gets thrashed be it tests or odis (got thrashed in 2012 as well) ,if we remove both the Sydney tests from his test career,his avg will come down under 30 lol

Don't thnk he was the best bowler from both sides. And of a 3 test series, we cant just ignore one of those tests lol. Looked awful in the last test. Even in the ODIs that followed, he wasn't at his best. Luckily he was still our first choice in the WC. But all this is futile, he looks to be a much improved bowler since the world cup. Hopefully he can keep this going. I thnk he's our best bowler ATM. :cantstop:

Umesh Yadav was dropped by KKR two matches back, he came back with good control and pace after that and got 5 wickets in two matches. Wasim Akram said in the interview that he made some technical adjustments with Umesh and his control is much better now. Wasim has also helped Shami before world cup. Wasim should be made bowling coach of India or atleast some short time coaching stint with Varun Aaron. Wasim Akram and Shoaib Akhtar are excellent desi bowling coaches who understand the language and mentality of local bowlers and unlike our rubbish domestic coaches, these two always say the same thing: " Never compromise speed, gain control with speed"

What were Sandeep Sharma's speeds today ? Did he swing it both ways ?
Sandeep Sharma was swinging it beautifully, both ways, speeds ranged from 130-138 KPH. He got wicket at the end, was unlucky not to get any wickets in his superb opening spell, Rahane is a test grade player and saw him off, Shane watson was struggling to put bat on ball and take singles in his overs.
