    The day an Indian hits 90mph in his teens.I will be happy.

  5. Bigg Boss 11

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

  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.

    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.
  11. Thommo - how quick was he?'

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

    At his peak Holding was 95mph.Not all day long like mulo said but top speed.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. ICC approves Test Championship, ODI league

  16. IND ODI Sqaud for NZ series announced : Rahul Shami and Umesh out

    Karthik And Shami dropped?WTF. He played 1 match.
  17. Well done Sri Lanka

    After being thrashed by India 9-0 at home they have come back strongly to whitewash Pakistan in UAE. Karunaratne and Chandimal batted very well and Herath destroyed the Pak batting. What a brilliant turn around.
  18. Is Shreyas Iyer ready for international bout

    Yes.Very much.
  19. Guwahati is perenial troublemaker.
  20. So this very tall bowler from Australia, capable of hitting 150ks was last seen in the IPL. He did play couple ODIs and T20s for Australia. I thought in the absence of Starc,Cummins,Hazlewood,Pattinson he will get a chance.But seems CA chose Beherendoff, a 27 year old journeyman.

  23. Arjun Tendulkar selected in Mumbai U-19 squad

    He was clocked at around 130ks in England.
  24. How does Surya Kumar Yadav earns more than Pujara? Whether one wants to be test only or not that decision is to be his and not anyone else's.
