    India ' bowling attack for England test series

    The bowling attack which did well in SA comprised of Bumrah. He is absent here and thats going to make significant difference. So, lets not get hyper excited.

    1st Test vs ENG : Pick your All Rounder and Bowling Lineup

    Ishant Umesh Shami Ashwin Kuldeep. This is a no brainer.

    Indeed! Unless you don't like Shastry, I can delete that sentence

    India ' bowling attack for England test series

    Despite having possibly the best resources ever, India has gone with a mediocre attack. Dog forbid, if Shami was to get injured, the Indian team is going to fall flat like a pack of cards!

    How fast was David Johnson?

    No, I mean the England match only. Speed gun wouldnt show the speeds on television, but the speeds used to come next day in press releases.

    Tbh, at times its difficult to ascertain pace just by looking at videos and having no other references. I remember the 99 world cup match against england. Debashish Mohanty was bowling red hot and was getting serious bounce. None of the english batsmen were comfortable against him. because of that bounce, it looked like he was bowling at a great pace. We all thought he was bowling express, but later the speed gun results showed his pace around 115-125!
  7. Next time, try watching cricket with eyes open
  8. Thats why he is playing KL Rahul in every match.
  9. Thats exactly what I am saying and thats exactly what the truth is. I think you have been living under a cave for a while.

    Dale Steyn, the greatest fast bowler of the century

    Steyn has to be the best. On virtue of effectiveness. Plus, he has been express in the first of his career, post that, still been genuine quick. Akram is overrated. He could bamboozle batsmen, but he wasnt effective when it came to taking wickets of top order batsmen.

    Lets not forget that this guys has not been involved in any ball tampering or any other controversies ( I am not aware of, correct me if I am wrong ). So, even if waqar matches him in strike rate, his career was not as clean and his success maybe owed to other factors. And Steyn, although not express, has been generating impressive speeds throughout his career. Had it not been for his injury, Steyn would have been better. An absolute gem!

    I'll be damned Btw, is this David Johnson on the other side? Or his digital marketing agency's associate?
  13. My 2 pence. These problems will keep happening. Not because we do not have talent in India. But because the power is concentrated too much with a few people. Sadly for Indian cricket, these people have always abused the power. Indian cricket team loses not lose because they are bad, but because of design. Kohli and Dhoni will not let proper talent come in. Even after the U19 win, Kohli had specifically made a comment that its going to take 3-4 yrs for the young talents to be considered. In hindsight, Kohli wants to hang on to his supremacy and not let any champion player come in and question his dominance. He has always anyway been a selfish, rude person. Why do we think he has changed? He hasnt, its just a PR stunt. So what's going to happen is, by the time all these young batsmen and the genuine quicks are brought in, they would have lost their steam already. And if we think that the Indian team is going to regroup and try to make changes, we are fooling ourselves. I have seen enough of Indian cricket. About 30+ odd years to understand that no change is going to happen. They are going to bully a weaker team sometime in near future and all will be forgotten!
  14. I dont see India proceeding ahead of the semis.

    Umesh Yadav - As brainless as ever

    Atleast give him a good pitch for a few matches and then decide.

    Indian cricket preparing itself for failures

    Except, its not selectors. Its Kohli who is running the show.
  18. I am glad. What we need to do is, welcome KOhli, shastri and dhoni with tomatoes, rotten eggs and slippers.Thats what they deserve and that would put them back to their place. They are all sell outs. Selling their country's honour for money. Kohli is 1000% getting money out of this, and so is Shastri. Dhoni is playing his dirty game again and getting money from sreeni boss. What a bunch of B*%stards

    Speed and performance of pacers and spinners in important matches

    Why cant the bowlers just try bowling yorkers and not length balls?

    Speed and performance of pacers and spinners in important matches

    He bowled 90mph + just a week back. I think its an instruction from the management to bowl within 140.

    Speed and performance of pacers and spinners in important matches

    Exactly. And lets not forget that there has been only one Mcgrath in the history of cricket. Pollock tried walking on the same path, but he ended up being just a toothless trundler towards the fag end of his career. Mcgrath perfected his art for years. People do not realize that Mcgrath was an almost average bowler when he had started off. And then he worked on his line and length and bounce and his minimal movement. Something that he could do on any pitch. It took years for him to perfect it. And let's not forget that to back Mcgrath up, there was a red hot Gillespie bowling at genuine pace more often than not, and later Brett Lee. And I am not even mentioning Shane warne. So, the pressure was never off of any batsman. It takes a lot to make things work and it worked for the Aussie team through their collective work.

    Mcgrath clocked 92mph in 99 WC? That's news to me. Although, like he mentioned, he was quicker in 95 in WI and even in 97 series in WI, he bowled pretty quick.
