Thampi  first over

 

138 k , 122k , 139 k, 140 k, 141 k , 140 k

that 122 k was probably 142K, that was an error. Baba Aparajith was trying to pull that but ball hit the bat before he could get into position to play the shot.

This guy is ready for international cricket no ifs or buts, averaged 140 today and fastest about 144, n domestic guns read 4 to 5 k less usually.

Accurate at the batsmen, good use of short ball, his pace is same when he hits short or gets it on difficult good length, very athletic, good action, strong action, to me he is the best bowler I have seen not playing for India, along with Nathu, Aniket.

Nathu, Aniket, Thampi, are all ready for next level,

Thampi for shorter format

Aniket for Test

Sangwan for shorter format

Nathu for test as he gets swing at good pace.

If only selectors take of their myopic glasses and pick the thoroughbreds.

D Kulkarni, S Thakur, Unadkunt, Aravind, to me are all mediocre, don't have the ingredients to be decent international class bowlers

Thampi, Aniket, Nathu Sangwan should be looked at also, Warrier, Siraj, Aaron, R Kiran should be inducted in A team n not poor bowlers past 28 years age like V Kumar, Aravind, Dinda.

@express bowling

 

many times you are reason i keep coming back to ICF during workday, your honest phast fan reporting over the years is honestly admired and respected by fellow phast bowler fans.:adore: may we soon see an Indian express pace battery in tests in near future.

Agree 100% as a fellow fast bowling fan and cricket fan @express bowling bro is one of the top posters on ICF. Always looking forward to his posts. If you didn't watch a bowler's performance in a game best place to go to is "Speed and performance of fast bowlers" and have a look at his posts there. He owns that thread with his regular balanced posts.

NO Doubt ..

 

@express bowling  & RKT  -  These 2 are my GEMS . No disrepect to others pl.. Don't get me wrong. 

 

That's why bit surprised not to find Ankit's  name  in potential category by him. 

 

Express Ji , is there something i am missing  why Ankit is excluded by you? Would like to hear from you.

Is India becoming the land of fast bowlers? Off late, we have been producing genuine pace bowlers at well and it will be unfair to compare us with Pakistan because we are ahead of them. I think even as of today, we have more 5-6 bowlers who bowl 145+ Not a lot of teams can boast of this.

Ankit (Rajpoot) vs Aniket (Chaudhary)

- who has been bowling better?

- Aniket Chaudhary is the one in A-team now for India, right?

To me Ankit rajpoot looks ready for LOI more than anyone

He has control, pace and temperament.  His height and control will get him wkts and would prove to be economical as well. 

When i see Rajpoot he always gives me the impression even if batsman is going after him he wont loose the plot which umesh does.

Unfortunately selectors didn't pick him in Iran trophy team as well as the 2 practice games against bang and aus.

He is doing well in small trophy. Hoping he will get a chance in a team or against any visiting team soon.

2 A teams for one day practice matches against England,  a ROI side and 2 A teams for 2 / 3 day matches. So....5 teams in all.

 

And yet we have not seen either Nathu Singh or Ankit Rajpoot in any of the teams.  No Aaron either despite being fit now.  Basically, the 3 quickest pacers left out.      (  I am assuming that they were not that aware of Thampi  before SMA Trophy this season  )

 

And we have seen Vinay, Dinda, Kaul, Vignesh type trundlers.

 

This is worrying.

I have been saying this for a long time , we need a pace bowler part of the selection committee permanently.Thats the only way we will get the right bowlers rather than just picking on stats.

Yes...either that or some top cricketer like Ganguly or Laxman who keep on talking about the need to have some genuine pace in the attack as a whole.

Both quite tall above 6'3", Ankit slightly pacier have seen him bowl high 140s, Test match kinda bowler, bowls a good channel outside off, moves the ball of the wkt, gets bounce and can bowl genuine wkt taking deliveries , lanky, languid and decent action

Aniket is hit the deck left armers with good action, high release, gained pains last few years, has learned to move the ball and gets good bounce, bowls difficult length, accurate, m not sure if he can get ball to comeback often enough, n if he can he will be a major threat to right handers, bowls around 135 to 142 k

Only becoming the land of fast bowlers if it starts aggressively selecting them in all formats and rotating them.

As much as i want that to happen, my only fear is they ll have someone like Venky or some trundler who will select similar trundlers.

What to do with selectors, but atleast this selection commitee is making some good moves. Hopefully rajpoot's number comes soon. 

I hope he plays for KKR regularly, which if he does m sure he ll have a lot of wkts. Atleast everyone will take a notice then

Thanks for all the kind words.       : )

 

It must be said that if  the Indian cricket fraternity had the kind of  love for fast bowling as lots of good quality posters in ICF have.....we would have developed a fast bowling culture `15 years back.

 

Mosher, tweaker, rkt.india, Rightarmfast, laaloo, Vilander, King Tendulkar, MCcricket,  Iron Hide, VishalVir Singh, ShebbySB, Bystander, Cricketics,, Opening_batsman, MultiB48, msplash9, Bleed-Blue, speedheat, Ankit_sharma03, ......  almost all of them are good quality posters and  all love fast bowling more than many international cricketers of our country, past and present.      : )

Respect bro.  I enjoy reading your posts because of the knowledge and detail you put into every post along with your passion for Indian cricket and fast bowling in particular :)

I will be really pissed if Arvind is in the playing 11. Both Warrier and Thampi should be in the playing 11.

watch this video Irani trophy 2011-2012. Fastest delivery from Umesh is 143, Aaron 141. While when Umesh and Aaron played international cricket later in the year, they both clocked 147 and Yadav even clocked 152 on Australia tour.

This  proves what  we have been saying for many years..... domestic speed guns show much slower pace....by around  5 k.

 

And Thampi and  Nathu are all genuine fast bowlers  and  Shardul,  Rajpoot,  and Warrier  are not far behind.

 

This group needs special attention.

So....speed ranges shown in this  screen for a 5 day domestic match

 

Umesh  132 k to 144 k.....speeds in internationals later that year  ....  135 k to 148 k

 

Aaron  132 k to 141 k.....speeds in internationals later that year  ....  135 k to 148 k

 

 

 

Speed ranges we have seen for the quicker Indian pacers in domestic matches

 

Thampi   135 k to 144 k  ( T20 )

 

Nathu    130 k to 143 k   (  4-day match )

 

Warrier  134 k to 141 k  ( T20 )

 

Shardul   128 k to 141 k  ( 4-day match  )

 

Rajpoot  132 k to 142 k  ( T20 )

             128 k to 139 k  ( 4-day match )

 

Siraj    130 k to 140 k ( T20 )

           127 k to 137 k ( 4-day match )

     

Sangwan  125 k to 141 k  ( 4-day match )

 

Rahul Shukla  128 k to 140 k  ( 4-day match )

 

Navdeep Saini   128 k to 137 k  ( 4-day match )

 

 

 

We can adjust accordingly
