  1. Kaul doesnt look quick at all . I doubt the 147 kph reading . Dont think he will ever replicate that . Bhuvi has upped his pace quite a bit in the last few years . Him bowling 140 plus is no surprise . The most exciting should obviously be the u19 quick clocking 140 plus and bowling well. in a high pressure environment .
  2. In t20 cricket those speeds are actually a little dissapointing tbh . The benchmark should be 147-150 kph and not 140 .for reference there were around 15 Pakistani pacers if not more that clocked 140 plus in the Psl from 6 sides which basically means pretty much everyone that rolled his arm over.
  3. 145 -150 kph should be the criteria for fast bowlers in t20 cricket . 90 percent will bowl a few at over140 kph . What's the fastest Stanlake has clocked ?? He seems like the only one capable of breaching 150 kph this IPL.Want to see if he can get upto 155 kph . Riaz got upto 154 kph in the Psl.
  4. Bumrah needs to be protected . He is massive for India's world cup campaign.
  5. Lol no . I posted the data in the other thread . Wahab was much faster clocking high of 156 kph . Anyways this is not the thread for this discussion . Ill see myself out.
  6. And yet no one in the history of Indian cricket has ever come close to bowling as fast as Wahab did in the test series vs England The fastest Indian bowler right now is Bumrah perhaps snd he gets upto 148 kph max.

    Hasn't ball tampering always been a concerted effort?

    Lol you are talking about Kapil dev . Perhaps the most influential pace bowler in Indian history . Sure he did not have any influence . I believe you Lol. Doesn't matter what kapil says . Its irrelevant . We are discussing what the umpire has said about him . I was just pointing out his very averge bowling record inspite of such allegations .

    Lol umpire holder has specifically mentioned Kapil . Kapil wasn't some junior in the side who would be forced to bowl with a tampered ball by Prabhakar . I am not dragging his name . Neutral umpire holder is . I am just suggesting that despite tanpering some bowlers still have mediocre stats .

    Lol . Would Kapil have averaged in the 50s if he did not tamper ?? : John holder The likes of srinath and zaheer were surely club level if sachin and dravid werent playing the roles of Banctoft and duplessis at the time . Lol what a stupid argument . Pakistan have just been better at the sport over the years . Move on man .

    Kapil has a pretty ordinary record for someone involved in ball tampering doesn't he ?? Prabhakar wasnt too flash either . John Holder saying nothing new here . All teams have indulged in the practice in one form or the other.
  11. 95 3 mph from Wahab riaz . Haven't seen that sort of pace in the Uae in a long long time . Fastest bowler in the world at 30 plus . What a supreme athlete .

    3 games into Nidahas Trophy, what have we learned so far?

    That the pace bowling backup is non existant beyond the two Bs .
  13. What's with the back to the 90s pace bowling attack ??

    Pakistan fast bowling factory

    Not 1 . He bowled 3 in an over above 150 kph to sarfaz . He is in good ryyhm . I think he along with Starc and fergusson is the fastest bowler in the world right now . Wahab has lost his mojo in limited overs after the 2 new ball rule but he actually has been pretty decent in test cricket and has bowled some crucial match winning spells of late . There are better bowlers coming up though .

    Pakistan fast bowling factory

    Not really it was the manner in which he bowled and his attributes rather than the batsmen he dismissed . Shoaib Malik , Ross whitely and Junaid khan are hardly Pakistani batting prospects.

    Pakistan fast bowling factory

    Wahab riaz bowling 150 clicks . Wahab in good rythm is the fastest bowler in the world . Good to see some hostile left arm fast bowling from Wahab and Shaheen after watching Unadkat the other day.

    Pakistan fast bowling factory

    Shaheen Shah afridi . 4 overs. 5 wickets for 4 runs. 17 year old bowling 140 -145 kph . Beautiful action . Mouthwatering prospect.
  18. LOL .Why are you so defensive . This is a gully level attack . Now that you have derailed the topic this Srilankan team could barely face Fahim ashraf let alone the other backup pacers in limited overs . If you like Unadkat than that's fine man.
  19. India pre 2000s had some really orfdinary bowling lineups but there was always kumble.
  20. What's up with this Indian bowling attack . Some club level bowlers in there . India needs to prepare a better back up for Bumrah.
  21. Born and lives in Islamabad apparently . Parents i guess are refugees who came over a while back .Been playing age cricket here . The story of him not making the afghan team is stupid because his best chance of making it would actually have been with afghanistan .
  22. Injured . Hopefully doesnt affect his bowling . Could be all hype but these guys are good .
  23. So far 144 kph shaheen afridi 140 kph arshad 140 kph musa Really want to see ali , hasnain and munir in a televised game . So at least half a dozen 17 year olds who can clock upto 140 Shaheen is a special special talent . I like arshad too . Could make a good tall test match prospect in the future . Visible bounce and seam movement.
  24. No it does not worry pakistan fans because pakistan is a pretty sucessful t20 side mainly due to the bowling . Alao im not really worried about the pace attack becauae i follow pakistan cricket and i know that there is plenty of pace bowling talent around.
  25. https://www.icc-cricket.com/match/3620#hawk-eye_bowl-speeds Wahab alone has clocked 150 kph more times in test matches than all indian bowlers combined in pretty much all venuea. Anyways bowling 4 overs might not be the same but no other quartet around apart from the Aussie boys can clock those speeds . India with its improved pace attack ?? Still no chance.
