    Highest average speed in test cricket since 2010

    Hazelwood is a pacer who operates at different speeds in different innings. In some innings he bowls 130 k to 140 k range and in others he bowls 135 k to 145 k. ( I am not talking about spells but entire test innings )

    Highest average speed in test cricket since 2010

    From 2016, Shami has been very consistent in terms of high bowling speeds. He has bowled some slower spells only in South Africa.( because of brewing tensions with his wife ). Barring that, he has rarely dropped under the 135 k to 145 k range in the last 2 years, even when he was playing with minor injuries. ( Check my post in the Speed in Performance thread where I had listed the High and Average speeds of Indian quicks starting mid-2015 in all the test innings they have played ... with links ) ( I will let you know the page number ) His average speed of 137.1 k is still very good in test matches ... and would have been higher but for the year 2014, when he was a rookie test pacer and had not developed the stamina to bowl quick in all spells in tests at that stage in his career.

    Speed and performance of pacers and spinners in important matches

    1) There is a difference between attacking the stumps and bowling poor deliveries on the leg and down the leg. 2) This pitch has good to decent carry. Wicket keeper collected the balls at proper height. 3) If the strategy is attacking the stumps then they needed to bowl much quicker. 4) Umesh was basically trying to bowl outswingers ... and attacking the stumps was not his strategy most of the times. Ishant was trying to attack the stumps ... but at just fast-medium pace.

    The Afghanistani batters are very poor technically. I hope this does not give our bowling unit a false sense of security if we bowl them out cheaply. There have been very few edge inducing channel deliveries from Ishant despite having 3 slips and 2 gullies. Umesh has bowled some good outswingers but also lots of on the pad 4 balls.

    135 k to 143 k in the first 8 overs.

    Speed and performance of pacers and spinners in important matches

    Not that happy with our first 8 overs against a weak Afghanistan batting. We are going at over 4 runs per over in reasonably helpful conditions. Too many on the pad deliveries and half volleys. It is true that we don't have our 3 low average pacers ... Shami , Bhuvi and Bumrah. Yes, Afghanistan is 35 for 3 which includes a run out. But we need more discipline in England.

    Navdeep Saini bowling with genuine pace now

    Avesh is in that list. Check again. But, it had been decided by the selectors that most selections to Team India will be via our A-team. That means Avesh is being considered as a prospect ( as he was flown to SA ) but not " near national team selection " as he is not in our A-teams yet.

    Navdeep Saini bowling with genuine pace now

    Shardul will probably get the nod ahead of Saini ... but Saini is miles ahead of Shardul as a test prospect. I hope the pecking order is broken.

    Navdeep Saini bowling with genuine pace now

    Very happy to see Saini in the test team. Deserves it thoroughly. He should be in the playing 11. Then our team management will know where he stands as a test bowler ... and whether he can be played in England.
  10. There is a huge huge difference between test cricket and T20s. Moreover, experience of playing test cricket plays a big part too.

    What's common among ATG players?

    When exceptional talent and tremendous will to succeed is found in the same cricketer.

    Bowling combo in England

    Almost all Indian pacers have shown the ability to sustain pace in every session in test matches from mid-2015 onwards. The list includes Umesh, Shami, Bumrah, Aaron and even Ishant.

    Arjun Tendulkar breaks into India Under-19 squad

    I think Mohit Jangra maybe one.
  14. Isn't it a big risk ? Shardul may perform against minnows and look awful against strong teams. Rajpoot and Saini are comfortably ahead of Shardul as test prospects ... but it is Shardul who is getting selected !!
  15. I am a Pandya fan but he does not need to be " in " as a matter of certainty in test matches. We need to be flexible for the sake of effective team selection. ( And this issue applies to every player ). I am not sure whether he will add value as a test batsman in swing oriented England. Better to play 4 specialist pacers.
