Recommended Posts

Md Siraj has quickly emerge as one of the most promising fast bowlers in the country. Bowling raw pace is his passion. The twenty-two-year-old found his calling in playing cricket. In his first full Ranji Trophy season itself, the bustling pace bowler has carved a niche for himself by becoming the third top wicket taking bowler at the end of the quarterfinal phase with 41 wickets.

After poor time last season where he played in only one game against Service, Siraj was able to take only one wicket but selectors looked at him as the one for the future.

 

In the following season, the selectors continued backing Siraj along with the likes of Ravi Kiran and CV Milind and the move paid off for the association.

 

“We benefited hugely as Arun sir played a big role in making me a more incisive bowler. I could get my yorkers and the in-swingers right. It made me feel good. The coach never told me to sacrifice on pace.’’

 

Siraj’s best came in the last match against Mumbai in the quarterfinals where he took nine wickets, including five in the first innings. “I felt very happy when I bowled Shreyas Iyer with the ball coming in sharply. It was also my first five-wicket haul in first-class cricket.

You will never see this happen with Mumbai or Gujarat, take R Dias poor guy got only one game , nepotism runs rife in Mumbai, Delhi n Gujarat, if selectors n captains don't understand value of having a pace bowler n don't look to develop one n play ultra Trundlers like Sandhu, Baja , Malaria what. Shame, whereas. K Khan who was a left arm Malinga like bowler not getting into U.P squad, or M Aamir, Suyal, Javed Khan into Ranji teams n we have seen the Indian bowler play for UAE bowling at 140 at 38 years not getting into a mediocre side like MP.

Franchise based state teams loosely based on IPL model would be good for domestic team, atleast quality will go up, as talent scouts will find n support talent, whereas domestic cricket is right now like a BMC state where teams are mediocre and they compete with each other.

I don't see any player from Mumbai or Gujarat side get Into AUS or Eng county side.

I was looking at the Ranji season stats after seeing the Irani trophy squad.  This guy should have been a close contender.  One to watch out for definitely.  Let's see how he does in the IPL and next year Ranji.

 

 

Reading the article in the link above - :hatsoff:son of a rickshaw-driver and house-amid.  Good luck to him, hope he at least snags a 100K + contract in IPL at least.

Videos of him please.....if he is just 135+ with no swing or movement of the seam,I will set myself up for disappointment because have seen plenty of such bowlers...Likes of Ishant,Yadav and Aron stood out for being able to hit 150's....Shami stands out for being able to hit 140+ with movement of the seam.

 

ANything less than 140 will be a disappointment.

     The one clip i had seen  the ball came in a lot . Now at high pace of 140+  it cannot come in so sharply . Atleast not conventional swing. 

    I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT BOTTLE CAP REC=VERSE SWING!.  Seems more of 130+ ish at the moment

His pace could be around 135k. Otherwise there would have been a lot of hype already in media about the next fast bowling sensation. If one looks at recent warm up and irani trophy teams, it seems like selectors are not even considering him.

 

Stats in ranji looks promising (41 wickets from 9 matches. avg: 18.92 and sr: 39.58). I'll be glad if we get a wicket taking 135k bowler rather than another varun aaron.

as long as you can get wkts in int then pace ,accuracy, movement ,variations, bounce nothing matters

Action Looked a bit Like Balaji, Good height but a tad bit skiny (not the agarkar kind, weaker skinny), but i hope i am wrong and its a camera glitch, hope they nurture him, fast bowlers are always a welcome addition in the Indian Team.

I'm glad he is in the team, looking forward to seeing him bowl

 

Do folks on here think S. Kaul is a real prospect? I was hoping Chama Milind would be in the RoI team instead of him

No, Kaul isn't a prospect. Would have liked Aniket Chaudhary.

Watched parts of the first day being telecast on Willow. Here's my observation on the 3 seamers on view:

 

Siraj- is a medium pacer, not fast. Not as accurate as the other medium pacers but could get there. Still a little too raw. 

 

Kaul- fairly accurate bowler but more in the mould of Balwinder Sandhu, a yard quicker than him. I did not see any aspect of his bowling that could trouble international quality batsmen. 

 

Pankaj- easily the most impressive of the 3 seamers. He can move the new ball both ways. The first over he bowled was a gem- 4 outswingers and 2 inswinger and batsman was clueless finally got out lbw last ball. Bowls at about the same pace as Siraj, but with a lot more skill. Very unfortunate to have never got a chance to play a Test in India. We should give him a chance in India first. Perhaps he is not skilled to bowl with Duke or Kookaburra or on foreign surfaces. But definitely, he is one of the best medium pacers in India if you look at his FC consistency on different wickets in India.
