    greatness of Dhoni



    :laugh: if its Tamil nationalism how can they use Dhoni who is definition of rustic north indian for being a poster boy of it..haha


    Tamils are not clannish but are uber linguistic jingoists, but fiercely patriotic to Indian union.  


    This statement from Siddhu should not become some national debate, he is just an individual, and to a punjabi - tamil will feel alien not vice-versa as most tamils know hindi and would understand punjabi.

    Just highlighting the fact that Punjabi culture ( both Indian and Pakistani) is the most racist culture in the subcontinent, with only direct competition from the Pashtuns. 

    i think both have folks that are fixated towards skin color its pretty unfortunate to see and hear the said cases among them.

    One good thing about Aaron is, he is a hands on guy. He has a presence and demands respect from his players. Something Umesh doesnt have. Aaron also seems to be a thinking cricketer from whatever I saw on field.

    this is what perplexes me the most, when they came into the scene, i was certain Aaron is the long term guy ( may be play tests - speak well, play country grow into a good fastbowler i.e be like Zak) and Umesh is a flash in the pan ( LOI variety rustic background brute strength guy) --> turns out i could not have been more wrong...Umesh is one of our more relied test bowlers and Aaron is nobody.




    Bro i know you met him, did you manage to speak to him atall - did he sound like a motivated guy.. ?

    Aaron 135-140. He has bowled a lot of 138-139k deliveries. Ball was hitting the bat hard. Average speed has been good. But would like to see him bowl quicker. Want to see a few 145k deliveries on these speed guns. 


    Good to see Shukla bowling quick too. He was bowling around 133 -140 in his 1st spell. 

    dude domestic speed guns have always shown slightly slower speeds, if he is in high  130 - 140 that means he is bowling quick.

    Shukla is as quick as Shami. Add 5 kph speed to today's speeds and that would be 138 k to 145 k ... same as Shami.


    And his action looks closer to Aaron to me ... although not the same.


    Shukla has a very good List-A record.

    Rahul Shukla the guy who looks like a beast, when he first came i was certain he was the next Umesh/Aaron...then both him and Aaron disappeared lol..

    Varun is still fast after so many injuries,give the guy a T20 cap for just that instead of Thakur and Kaul ,that will send a great message to the next gen of fast bowlers.

    Aaron is 28 ,not that he cant make a comeback

    He still bowls fast,a reasonable domestic season should make him back in the reckoning

    If same is the yardstick for ultra mediocres like shardul,chahar,kaul,unadkat to get in the team,then Varun too deserves same amount of attention and respect

    absolutely certain that he will raise his game if he is given an international cap.

    He was not that bad when he got a chance, dont understand why even after coming after injury they did not get him back and give him a proper run.

    Probably the most interesting bowler to watch on Indian wickets at this time in a test match. Has his inconsistencies but you can’t forget where he comes from and what effect he has had on his peers in Indin cricket, especially the young generation of Indian bowlers. 


    He will always go down as the pioneers of this new Indian fast bowlers. This guy deserves credit for spreading and creating fast bowling culture and the ability to stay fit. It has rubbed onto lot of youngsters who want to perform better than him and replace him. That in itself is an achivement for Umesh and he deserves lot of credit for that. Bowlers now really want to come into the Indian team abd bowl fast like him. 


    Well done Umesh. Hats OFF


    Yup..till this season he was consistently fast which was never done by anyone before him. Even Srinath was never consistent with pace.

    He was talking about attitude and approach not playing style

    Probably true but no one is going to listen.  He meant is assertive for India like Sachin,and scores quickly like Sehwag in the top and is a left-hander like Lara with a big back-lift. But based on two matches it's stupid to put such pressure on a teenager.

    Here's his bowling action position at the crease. Back leg parallel to the crease which means a classic side on bowling action but his Nonbowling arm stays in line of his left shoulder, which isn't the ideal use of the nonbowling arm as it falls early. For a side on action bowler left arm should be coming across the right eye.


    Thats his delivery stride. What are you talking about. How can he have his hand near his face across his eyes during delivery stride..

    India is changing because of advanced training methods being incorporated finally. For the longest time, training in India was endurance based which means running long distances and that results in slow twitch fibers which resulted in a bunch of medium pacers like Prasad, madan lala, amarnath, prabhakar etc


    Now with more weight training and HIIT means fast twitch fibers are being developed which is what you see in guys like Andre Russell and which is what quick bowlers need

    Besides being desert and semi arid dwellers. Indians ought to have its share of insidents of freaks of nature like Akthar.. English are going for height advantage..india has edge there as well, tropics have natural allowance for more height while colder climes have inhibitors as longer torso expends heat more easily, provided few generations are eating balanced diet indians should be able to find taller specimens as well.

    I meant their diet habits.. being physically strong.. especially to be a fast bowler... Having fast twitch muscles is a default thing but to sustain it you need to have lot of basic strength to avoid injuries.. 

    there is proof that genetics can influence response to training in humans.


    Meaning - cardio vascular endurance, muscle type( that you mentioned), vo2 max, anaerobic threshold etc This is why with right training and right scouting you are beginning to see Indian fast bowlers bowl whole test series faster than English ones.


    but there is no proof that any particular nationality or sect has less instances  of genetic predisposition that others.
