    No he will not. For 100/200m you need lots and lots of muscles to propel you. Dhoni is not there. It looks fast but it really is slow at that level.

    More indicative is the 27 Km/hr whic is less than 17 mph. Decent athletes will pull 20 mph routinely and good one can 23 mph. That is more than 35 kmph. Dhoni is good but not special.

    Dhoni got that speed with pads on.

    That flight can be 15cm or even 1.5cm but that depends on the fps of the camera.What is the fps of the hawk eye camera and what is the fps of cameras used in 1975?

    Hawk Eye uses 1000fps cameras yet separate speed gun radar is used to get ball speed.

    I am not even going into the cutting edge software and computing technology used by hawk eye.And still radars are used to get the speed of the ball.

    Isn't it possible that the tech used in 1975 extrapolate the speeds? Both things are possible. They might have lower speeds, but if speeds were  lower by 5 kph, you think Thomson was bowling 165 KPH because that is a ridiculous claim from you.

    Shaw is real deal . Needs more hype 


    icf obsessed with pant when shaw is the one ! 


    Ps hate for rahane is silly been excellent last few odi series . Honestly has . Raul I like as well and should be in squad 

    Hype was because he scored runs. If he does not score, people wont talk much about him. players can be out of form. Same Pant scored a 35 ball 50 against England in OD warmup. Shaw still scored only at 83 SR. Pant is someone who can score really quick and is bound to have a few failures with his style of batting.  We have plenty  batsmen who an score at 80-90 SR. None apart from Pandya who can scorer 110 or more. Pant can do that.

    Roberts was recorded at 150ks and Holding at 148ks in 1975.Considering these are speeds over the length of flight, the release speed can be 5kmh extra. So no doubt that Holding and Roberts bowled 150ks.



    So Holding wasn't a 95 mph bowler as spread by Muloghonto, neither was Andy Roberts.  Remember, this was a fast bowling comp so they must have all tried to bowl as fast as they could and then achieved that pace.  This may not be their usual pace that they bowled on average. Regarding Lillie, he was slowed down by 75 due to a back injury. He was at his quickest in 1971. This is Liliee at his quickest.

    I thought that to be the reason when he did not play


    But why no Khejroliya, Yarra and Kushang in this round  ?



    Karnail singh stadium pitch traditionally suited to spinners, so, Delhi played 3 spinners.  Same is probably the case with Kushang Patel. No idea about Yarra.

    Yes ofcourse. Its only his second year and he can improve a lot. Just that the wow factor was missing which was there when I first saw nathu and thampi bowl.

    You saw them bowl under speed guns and on better pitches, which had bounce.  Most bowlers wont give that wow factor on such a pitch.  To contradictory, he was standout pacer on this pitch to me. He got life out of this dead pitch even in 2nd innings.  You had to watch Sran bowl and his deliveries were barely carrying to the keeper.

    So Kamlesh/ Mavi/pant/Shaw / Gill over the age to qualify for 19 game but Shaw is only 18 I think.is he for Mumbai ranji trophy now?


    Think Arjun T missed selection 

    No, they are not over the age for U19. Pant played last U19 and he is 20 now. Kamlesh, Mavi, Shaw, Chahar, Gill they will play WC next year. They are trying some new players for Asia cup and letting these youngster playing higher grade cricekt like u23 and Ranji trophy. Both Gill and Saw have been picked for Ranji teams.

    Above team will not reach Quaterfinal of Asia cup, asia cup not schedule in India was the prime reasons 6 player got lucky to get selected but I do not think with long run those new comers has any potential to come out good.


    which mandeep is above.? Is he under 19? Can anyone tells me who will be Number 4 and number 5 from above team?

    Mandeep Singh is a fast bowler from punjab.


    From above manjot and rana opener. Harvik desai at 3, abhishek sharma 4, salman and riyan 5 and 6. Anukul 7.

    Watched him bowl in the first innings against punjab. Speed looked around 135-140k to me. Personally was not exited watching him bowl.

    140 is good for a 22 year old. Remember Mohali is one of the slowest and lowest pitches in India. It is asking for a relay now for years.

  10. Just now, Nate said:

    Because  his recent two failure vs Level B bowling ( out in single digit) was prime reasons for his exit.


    i liked the Way BCCI selects some player but No Kamlesh really strange me 

    That's not the reason. Shaw, Nagarkoti, mavi, chahar, shubhman are shoe in for next u19 wc and they will be playing higher grade cricket.
