    Bengaluru, October 6: Ian Pont has good amount of success as a bowling coach. The Englishman has been imparting lessons on how to increase pace combined with accuracy over the last three years through Ultimate Pace Foundation (UPF). Pont, who coached international teams like Bangladesh and associated with top-of-the-shelf pacers like Dale Steyn, will conduct clinics across India in cities like Gurgaon and Vadodara to help aspiring Indian quicks gain in experience and skill ahead of sterner tests. Pont took some time off from his hectic schedule to talk to Mykhel.com about pace bowling, UPF, contemporary quick men among others. Excerpts: UPF....how's it coming along over the last three years? I started the UPF in Bengaluru in January 2014. Since then we have had 14 camps and have others planned. It's tough without a sponsor but we have spread the word to Delhi, Pune, Vadodara and Hyderabad. The coaching is based on my Four Tent Pegs developed form 20 years of research and how technical fast bowling shares many crossovers with javelin and baseball pitching - both sports which I have taken part in. Our website www.ultimatepacefoundation.com has had more than 220,000 visits in this time. Unlike other well-funded places like MRF Pace Foundation, UPF works exclusively on developing speed and teaching bowlers how to bowl quicker and more accurately. You are a regular to India in this period, have you noticed any change in the approach of young Indian bowlers? Indian bowlers bowl far too much in my view. Often they bowl for hours on end and get very little in return. It becomes very hard to develop talent without technical input and interaction. When I first started coaching in India, players were hesitant to respond and really just sat there. But now, their mindset towards learning fast bowling as changed. I believe that you should coach others as you wish to be coached yourself. In the present Indian set up, pacers get as much significance as spinners. Glad to see this cultural shift within cricket? It is great to note that India is focusing less on spin to win matches. It is terrific to see quicks doing well. But the challenge of any great quick is to take wickets overseas and win Tests in foreign conditions. The second thing is producing bowlers regularly bowling 150 kph to challenge the best batting techniques. We have yet to witness either yet, so India has work to do in this respect. As I said there are some good signs and it would be good to see the world's fastest coming out of India soon. https://www.mykhel.com/cricket/mindset-of-indian-fast-bowlers-is-changing-ian-pont-070712.html

    Good to know that khejroliya is playing test matches. He seems to bowl at a brisk pace as it was also mentioned in news that he was generating some good pace and was hitting the deck hard today. Here' what Indian express reported about his bowling today. "Another impressive performance came from left-arm pacer Khejroliya (1/46 in 18 overs), who produced decent pace with a 70 plus over old SG Test ball. It was sheer pace that sent Assam skipper Gokul Sharma’s (51 off 172 balls) stumps cartwheeling. Kulwant was hitting the deck hard and getting deliveries to rear up awkwardly where some of the others couldn't get it above knee roll at times."

    Excuses. Apologists for the "innocent no-baller" are never short on excuses. Amir is a poor man's Bhuvi at this point in his career. A very good ODI bowler who is only effective in tests if the conditions give him some help. In test matches, you need a better quality of bowler, like Shami, Yadav etc to take wickets without help from the pitch. And over-hyped Qaidi # 5 can't get it done. Ishant is not a world beater - he's the 4th choice pace bowler for the Indian team. But on dead tracks like the one that Amir is playing and leaking runs at 4.7 RPO with the new ball, I would say a hard-working stock bowler like Ishant may even be a better option. Pak has a better version of Ishant in Wahab - I would expect him to take more wickets this match than Qaidi. Poor Hassan Ali, dropped for no reason to accomodate the golden boy.

    He is living in past glory and doesn't understand anything about T20's to be precise .This old hog needs to understand T20's is not just about building ...A player who can score 30 runs of 18 balls or so is a better than one who scores 50 off 48 balls .

    If the problem is just UAE tracks, why does Amir average 48.5 in Australia, 36 in NZ, 43.5 in Sri Lanka? And in all those places his average before and after the ban are very similar?

    Will Mohammad Amir be dropped in 2nd test?

    It was always true, besides the phateechar bottle topper khan, akram and waqar they haven't produced a single great pacer (ok maybe akhtar could be added in this category but he took too few wickets in tests) Their golden era of phaast bowling started in the mid 80s and ended in 2000, they were phateechar before that and they have been phateechar since then.

    Leaking runs at more than 4 runs per over. When SL isn't even trying to score quickly, crawling along at barely above 2 RPO. Impotent bowling from the pace bowling paaverhouse factory. Could it be true, like some ICFers have posted multiple times? Camera ne inkaa kaat diya?

    Viv Richards said the same during our WI tour 2016. Said that Shami was very similar to Marshall in terms of pace and height. Also, said that Garner was not an out-and-out fast bowler but depended on steep bounce. One of the few past cricketers who does not try to glorify his era too much.

    One aspect of Rohit sharma is not often discussed. He is a six hitting maniac. Last 4 years 117 sixes in 66 matches. Much better ratio than Guptill/ABDV.

    Actually trundler reputation only made a comeback during the MS Dhoni era. Otherwise Since Sourav Ganguly's captaincy, India have always had a crop of genuine fast medium bowlers. Since Kohli has returned, he has reignited the tradition started off by ganguly and dravid. In fact i would say currently, that Indian bowlers are quicker than their Pakistani counterparts.

    one can gauge the distance on tv ,if you mean by how far the keeper is standing as in metrics then one cant say that accurately but you wont be able to do that even in the stadium . pataudi batted in test matches with one eye how did he manage it if you cant judge the position of the ball in 2d ? even 3d images are illusions . read up on it before sprouting nonsense.

    No bowler has bowled 95mph throughout the day, since speed guns have been in use regularly.There is no proof that while athletes in all other sports have got better the cricketers have gone worse. Do you have any list of the other competitors of Holding in 1970s or 60s for that 400mt trial?You automatically make him the better runner.Lol. No one is denying that Holding was likely a 90mph bowler.But that is not equal to bowling 95mph throughout the day.

    Overrated....even the average IPL slogger would just move his back leg across and smack him. even 125k without helmets etc can look super phaaast. Thompson at max was probably a 140k bowler...English and Aussies usually overrate their players. Hear Ian Chappell speak, mention any great player and he always has an equivalent player who played Sheffield shield in Australia who was that good lol.

    Dude, what does that even mean??? " a 2d image projection of a 3d object to gauge distance." You seem to be obsessed with this point. Did you just learn it? I can accept that its tough to gauge the speed of ball merely by looking at a video, but your logic about us judging the distance of the keeper is hilarious. That can be gauged very easily. You can also just try to judge the boundary behind the wicketkeeper, as a matter of fact. Which gives indication of the distance and speed.

    there is no evidence of holding nearly qualifying for olympics nor of holding bowling exceptionally fast and how are you judging all this if we cant even judge the distance of the wk how can we judge the speed/bounce of a bowler .

    Nice videos and some really interesting and valuable debate is going on here, i think its difficult to judge the pace of the ball from videos with no speed gun as any batsmen with zero technique will make even binny look like Brett Lee , we can only guess it, holding, garner,Thompson are looking quick around 140kph to 145+kph but certainly not 150+kph or 160kph which was hyped.

    Nagarkoti was bowling 83 mph to 89 mph in the televised match and commentators said that he touched 90 mph So, it is a 133 k to 145 k range , which is quite high for a 17 year old. Check the 2nd video of his above .... looking very sharp

    Most of the fear (and concomitant exaggerated respect) came from batsmen not having helmets, prevalence of unfriendly pitches with uneven bounce, and no bouncer laws.

    All the intl bowlers we have are either fast or fast medium.Shami,Umesh,Ishant,Bumrah,BK all are fast or fast-med.Even Hardik is capable of 140-145 kph.All the upcoming bowlers for India are sharp too. At least 10 of them.

    He lacked two things. Firstly, he lacked the fast bowler's temperament. Secondly, he lacked a proper awareness of what length to bowl (although his line was quite good)

    your terrorist community comment was clutching at straws to undermine the motion in Canada's Ontario that officially recognized the sikh genocide. Sikhs all over including India have advocated for justice for the atrocities in 1984. In India, Sikhs don't glorify the Indian police or government for the atrocities against them in 1984. Fact is sikhs were killed, raped, and burnt alive for multiple days straight and the police simply ignored all of it and the PM of India, Rajiv Gandhi merely justified the carnage by saying when a tree falls, the earth below shakes. Numerous reports and investigations have revealed that it was systematic and organized and worse than a genocide. You can call it by whatever name but it doesn't change the fact that thousands of sikhs were killed, burnt alive, and raped in India in 1984 and the decade that followed in punjab. if you want signatures, a simple google search yield those results. i think there's no point in reiterating the same thing over and over again. If you want a better understanding, go do some background considering you have ignored the articles I've posted here. again you keep on deflecting the main points. peace out
