  1. Thommo - how quick was he?'

    well if you can get to 165 then 170 isnt impossible and then onto 175 and onward..
  2. Thommo - how quick was he?'

    you dont need such high fps ,you might get precision in meters but we dont calculate bowling speeds to that extent
  3. Thommo - how quick was he?'

    to measure speed 200 fps is enough you dont need 1000 fps ,1000 fps is for slow motion and also they are not used all the time as it is too expensive. hawkeye cameras use different angles to determine the speed and trajectory of the ball,its a different technology compared to fps .
  4. Ranji Trophy 2017/18

    i hope he hasnt lost pace ,he wasnt that fast if he loses any more it would be pretty bad,he should take his time hopefully no more injuries.
  5. ind has produced only 1 genuine wrist spinner in all it's history ,maybe we shouldnt look for that either ,in any case we have more pacers now than ever in our history so it shows that things are not that elusive after all.
  6. Thommo - how quick was he?'

    yes 1/2kmph or max 1kmph could be lost if done properly ,ofcourse errors can happen as we see even in hawkeye
  7. Thommo - how quick was he?'

    i think they lose more speed , close to 30-40 ks over the distance on a slow pitch but most of it is lost after the ball pitches,they lose little pace due to friction in the air,5kph is a lot to be lost at the release due to the blindspot of the camera.
  8. Thommo - how quick was he?'

    even if we check the blindspot of the 200/400 frames camera, for sake of argument that the exact release speed is not measured, it will be somewhere around the 15cm range ,now how much pace can be lost in 15cms ? if you say 5 ks then over the next distances as well you will keep losing pace and will be down to nearly 0 kmph over 500 odd cms which clearly isnt the case.
  9. Thommo - how quick was he?'

    these days they use hawkeye cameras not speedguns,even guns vary in pace they are not not all the same, remember in nz the speeds used to be quite slow till they got an uniform setting
  10. Thommo - how quick was he?'

    i saw somewhere roberts had clocked 159k.... whatever these recorded speeds tells us there is no doubt they were quick, as quick as modern day pacers ,the debate is whether they were super human and bowled a lot quicker than anyone we have seen over the last 25 years.i can tell you one thing we wll never see a bowler who bowls over 150ks all the time as long as we live
  11. i think kohli could look to bowl some rollers like chris harris used to, may be the ball will grip a bit more off the surface ,his little floaters are useless
  12. of what i have seen mostly under 130
  13. yes ,even kedar never bowled ,he had to to get in the team.
  14. Ranji Trophy 2017/18

    has sran lost pace? only 2 wkt for 250 runs since coming back
  15. they should look to improve the batting of the pacers in junior and domestic levels,the spinners seem to bat better,ppl like ashwin jadeja,axar, jayant, karn ,mishraji even chawla ,kuldeep too has potential
  16. rubbish,by this logic one will never improve.
  17. Thommo - how quick was he?'

    yes ,its like claiming pollock was quicker than hayward or mcgrath was quicker than lee,or philander is quicker than aaron
  18. Thommo - how quick was he?'

    lol ,where has he said akram was medium pace or a trundler ,he categorically said he was fast-fastmedium,
  19. Thommo - how quick was he?'

    ppl like anderson have maxed out at 145 147 ks ,there isn't a lot of difference among int bowlers in terms of speed ,it's down to skill, vaas was a better bowler than fernando , doesnt mean he was quicker, you are putting the cart before the horse if you claim better pacer means quicker ,and no one here is saying bowlers of the past didnt have pace but that doesnt mean they bowled 153 ks all day or we cant judge pace by watching people on tv,
  20. Thommo - how quick was he?'

    so now you have discarded your garbage theory and acknowledge we can judge speed from a 2d image projection of a 3d object , now its just down to a certain range lol
  21. Thommo - how quick was he?'

    yes like if you watch me and holding bowling on tv you wont be able to tell who is quicker
  22. Thommo - how quick was he?'

    nonsense no batsman can measure pace
  23. Thommo - how quick was he?'

    no batsman can tell the speed of the bowler he is facing
