  5. Dhoni: when will the torture end???

    Dhoni wipes the floor with that Sarfaraz Khan.Twice a day. He is fitter than the entire Pakistani team put together.
  6. https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/sports/cricket/news/pakistan-will-play-in-icc-world-leagues-only-if-india-honours-mou/articleshow/61119268.cms?from=mdr PCB begging continues.This time trying to hold the ICC leagues hostage.Shameless people.
  7. Iyer and Siraj called up for T20s

    Iyer will not get to play 1st two T20s.Will likely get 2 overs in last T20 and then dropped.Same happened to Pant.
  8. Pakistan captain Sarfaraz was approached by a bookie in Sharjah before the 3rd.He reported the matter and ICC is investigating it.
  9. Dinesh Karthik in the team over Manish Pandey

    Kartik has stopped keeping.

  14. Bigg Boss 11

    The show is finally showing some promise this week.
  15. Thommo - how quick was he?'

  16. Thommo - how quick was he?'

    We already have 4 bowlers breaking 160ks in last 15 years of use of speed guns.Why 165 is a ridiculous claim? I agree that 170 or 180ks as claimed by few is ridiculous but 165 isnt.
  17. Thommo - how quick was he?'

    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.
  18. The Indian team seems to be a bit afraid to experiment.They just want the same 11 playing every match.The problem is that in other conditions 2 spinners may not work and another pacer may be needed.An injury to either Bumrah and BK will mean we may play a novice like Thakur or someone who has not played LOIs. The swiftness with which Shami has been discarded after one match, when he is arguably the best fast bowler in Asia is astonishing.Someone needs to tell the team management that while BK can hold runs Shami is more likely to take wickets. Very disappointed with the present tactics.
  19. Thommo - how quick was he?'

    The cameras measure trajectory and the speed gun measures speed.They are then integrated to show a combined graphics to the viewer. Cameras cannot measure speed unless they have integrated speed guns.But you can calculate speed of ball over the flight using cameras.
  20. Thommo - how quick was he?'

    They use integrated technology.Hawk Eye Cameras,speed Guns.
  21. Thommo - how quick was he?'

    At his peak Holding was 95mph.Not all day long like mulo said but top speed.
  22. Thommo - how quick was he?'

    How can cameras record release speeds?The frame rates are mentioned because thats how they calculated speed. Using the frames to calculate the time taken to cover distance from hand release to pitch point.Then calculating speed. Only speed guns measure release speed.
  23. Thommo - how quick was he?'

    http://www.espncricinfo.com/cricinfoat20/content/current/story/661125.html 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.
