  1. Thommo - how quick was he?'

    now see Umesh Yadav on 2012 tour. varun aaron
  2. Thommo - how quick was he?'

    it is trivial listening to them. They all exaggerate and use hyperbole. I have already an example of that in this same thread when a juicy half volley from Len Pascoe was called a yorker by Ashley Mallett. There were no speed guns in those days so no one had any clue what speeds they were facing or bowling and poor batsmanship also exaggerated their pace. As soemone in this thread said batsmen were not used playing high pace and bouncers and boucers used to be prohibited before Lloyd and Chappel started them again. This exaggerated things even more.
  3. Arjun Tendulkar selected in Mumbai U-19 squad

    he has already started playing for Mumbai U19.

    subroto bannrjee is his bowling coach
  6. he was unfairly discarded after just one test
  7. Dhoni needs to follow Nehra

    he debuted for India in 1999, so, 18 year career but he has not played much due to injuries. Zaheer has played more than him despite having smaller career. Where is the question of resting when he did not even play much. he played 17 tests in 18 years, 120 ODIs that is less than 7 ODIs a year. Just 90 FC macthes
  8. Thommo - how quick was he?'

    as I said even a 135 kph bowler bowling bouncers to poor batsmen without protecting gears will look quick. Like in women cricket, their fastest bowler bowls 120kph and that is super quick for them but it is military medium for men cricket. If i go by our logic, i shouldn't even say Holding, Thommo, Marsall were fast because i cannot just their speeds in a 2D video but i can actually they were fast through those same 2D videos while this isnt the case of some others who i dont consider fast.

  10. Arjun Tendulkar selected in Mumbai U-19 squad

    dropped after two poor outings
  11. Dhoni needs to follow Nehra

    this is like glorifying the past.
  12. Dhoni needs to follow Nehra

    what extended time. It is not like he was bowling 90 mph like Umesh and Shami does. He was a 135 kph bowler and would go down to 125 if he had to bowl many overs in tests. He always lacked fitness and stamina. Only in his 30s, he started working on his fitness. He barely played much for India when he was young as he was always injured.
  13. Ranji Trophy 2017/18

    i actually dont even want them play and take a place of some youngster.
  14. Dhoni needs to follow Nehra

    yes, blaming BCCI is foolish. It is not like he played a lot. He was never fit to play in the first place. He was just fragile. Some guys are like that. Cant do much about it. Look at VRV Singh. Every time, he tries to make a come back in domestic cricket,. he gets injured. Could only play 29 FC matches in 11 years since his debut. His FC record is still stellar but his body just could not last.
  15. Dhoni needs to follow Nehra

    Mitchell Johnson had 4 back stress fracture by the age of 24. The reason he debuted so late for Australia in test cricket. He worked hard to become stronger and fitter. Not like he was born with that body he had.
  16. this thread is about T20, not ODIs. T20 is not his game. he has never been really good in IPL too. One can score quickly in ODIs doesn't mean he can do that in T20s. T20s need six hitters. Dhawan is great example of being good in ODI and below average in T20.
  17. Seems to be a tough pitch to bat on
  18. Thommo - how quick was he?'

    It doesn't at all matter what they say. County is still a domestic cricket. What ever Videos I have seen of him doesn't look fast. Anyway for batsmen without protection gears, even 135 kph is very fast.
  19. Indias struggle with unknown bowlers !!!

    dont remember seeing him bowl live but he looks quick here. While Beherendorff is mainly a swing bowler, will struggle with no swing an Johnson was pretty quick when he debuted. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqHk3dXMyyg
  20. Thommo - how quick was he?'

    how is it ego? Did I say Holding wasn't fast? Did i say Thommo wasnt fast? Did i say Marshall wasnt fast? These three were all fast. I only said Gray wasn't fast. Sylvetser Clarke was not fast. I go by evidence which are videos. Videos show Thommo, Holding, Marshall were fast. Videos show Clark and Gray not that fast. I said Duncan Spencer was fast who bowled to Viv Richards in 1994 and made him look like a novice though Richards was at the fag end of his FC career. While I posted Gray bowling in 1992 and did not look fast. Now it cant be that videos are making others look fast but not Gray or there is some visual illusion in videos of Gray.
  21. he isnt a T20 player neither is Jadhav.
