B Thampi - Kerala Fast Bowler

Recommended Posts

Guys, if possible tune into Star Sports to watch T20 match between -Kerala and Andra 

 

-Kerala Fast bowler named Thampi is bowling with fair amount of Pace. He is hitting more than 140 KPH almost every ball which is rarity in Indian domestic. He looks faster than Sandeep warrior. As I type he has beaten H.Vihari for pace

 

Anyone knows about him. Looks a prospect for national team

Really impressive 2nd over from Thampi bowling consistently over 140K and hitting 144K. Bowling stump to stump line and  got the wicket of Vihari LBW. Warrier from the other end is impressive too. He has given just 5 runs of his 2 overs and has picked up 2 wickets.

I fail to understand why this guy Warrier has not been picked in any India A since he played for India U23 in Singapore. He was really impressive in that tournament.

I hope Basil Thampi and Sandeep Warrier get a lot of games in the IPL to showcase their talent

 

Hope the IPL scouts and the selectors are watching this game

This is the problem .we look far too much to ipl . If up coming fast bowler for example how on earth can you impress in ipl ? Flat pitches , short boundaries , bowlers grave , all about not going for 8 an over !! Faster you go the further you go .

 

but seems selectors and icf look at this mainly . And it's wrong !!! 

 

Also if solid defensive bat with good technique v pace and short ball which will do well in international cricket how can ipl show case this ???

Thampi is not a regular in FC matches for his state side.

 

We have seen him bowl well in a T20 game only and have not seen him in a 5-day match.

 

I think you have not seen him bowl....Basil Thampi  is bowling accurate, inswinging yorkers at will with high pace, bowling good slower balls and looks like an ideal bowler for the shorter formats.

 

Belittling the platform that the IPL provides is being impractical in my opinion.   fast bowlers Bumrah and Pandya came to the lime-light after doing well in the IPL and are now regulars in the Indian team.

he debuted for Kerala 2 seasons ago and has played 11 FC games but because of his below average FC performance, he has not been regular.

Lot of IPL talent scouts watching. Hope Thampi is picked up by some IPL team. A good performance in IPL will push him into the limelight. In Nathu and Thampi we have two youngsters who can bowl yorkers at will. Good prospects for LOI's.

Looks like the ball is reversing. That was an awesome yorker!

This guy got ideal action and pace for the reverse swinging Yorkers at death overs. Should be fast tracked to limited over side ASAP! Atleast fast bowlers with potential have to be introduced early. No point in bowling them to pulp in domestics.

And he looks strong enough with athletic body.

 

But signs are promising. Hope he will serves India some day

See the talent of the guy basil thampi!! And our idiotic selectors will select who??? Buddha nehra vinnu the great Kumar and ohh yaa not forget hurricanes of jai dev jai dev jaidev unandacut

Most teams use the shortest format as a talent showcase platform, while we use it to pension off the past sell-by cricketers.

Warrior too bowled well. But the other guy was mighty impressive. Sandeep seems to get more bounce

Both are of similar height but warrior has high arm action so he gets more bounce.

Yes he hit the deck harder and if you see the trajectory of some of his deliveries, it was all because of the kind of bowling action he has and how far up he was bringing his arm from whoch gave him a better bounce.

It's not about these players . But if you 90 mph bower who looks to same areas i.e. Hit top off and nibble away which is perfect bowler you will get spammed in ipl doing that . So just focusing on how they do in ipl don't mean a lot unless looking just at limited overs formats . Even then for limited overs 50 over formats not sure ipl will show case much if fast bowle . Faster you bowl further you go in ipl 

 

and as for test matches do you really get an idea on fast bowlers or even any bowler ? Yes nice to see them action so icf can take view point . But if selector watching Bowles live in ground in many formats surely much better idea 

 

we hold for too much value to ipl performances . How did jadhav and Jayant do in last ipl ? 

 

You here it sp often . Go has awesome ranji and clearly good player. But you here comment yeah but had poor ipl !!! Iyer for example in this

It depends on which format a player is being selected for

 

If a test player is being picked, how he does in FC matches, especially A team games and the Deodhar trophy, where the opposition is good, is what matters.

 

I am not talking about total runs or wickets for the season here.  For a batsman, it has to be seen  whether he has a good off-stump game, how he handles bounce, how he plays spin etc.  Extra marks for doing well on tough tracks or tough situations.

 

For a pacer, you look at his pace, bounce, ability to move the ball, is he targeting top of off-stump with most deliveries, does he have a good bouncer etc.

 

Iyer has not come to the fore, not because he did badly in the IPL ....but because he was playing the short balls very awkwardly on the A tour to Australia as well as in a knock-out Ranji game.

 

Similarly, the ability to bowl in T20 matches as well as the ability to bowl at the death in ODis....is often displayed well in the IPl and other T20 games.

 

You pick T20 players from these tournaments and sometimes good ODI players come up too....like Bumrah and Pandya.

 

We have seen Thampi bowling quickly and accurately in a t20 game.  So I  talked about the IPL.  

 

If i were impressed by him in a FC match....i would have talked about him being picked for the A team and Deodhar trophy.  

 

I hope I have made my point clear     : )

selectors dont look that closely at pace or methods of bowling ...hasnt performed much after 2012-13 season in list a

 

 

we are gettng more quicker pacers now than at any time in our history ,selectors need to pull up their socks and back these guys to the hilt also kerala needs to produce some quicker tracks for their pacers if they get home matches in the future,the pitches i saw in that ranji match was so slow and low  pathetic

Basil belongs to the part of Kerala which is considered as the hot bed of young athletes. KCA is doing some good work to attract these athletes to cricket by giving proper guidance and decent stipend. Hopefully we will see many more talented cricketers from Kerala in the coming years
