  1. Speed and performance of pacers and spinners in important matches

    Bumrah 146 k Consistently in the 138 k to 146 k range
  2. Speed and performance of pacers and spinners in important matches

    Bumrah gets his second wicket with a very similar delivery to his first Bowling a very good length and line with pace
  3. The batting conditions have become harder with every passing day in this test. Flat on day 1, swing from day 2. some balls up and down from day 3 plus increased swing. Some balls climbing sharply, some balls keeping low and some balls seaming sharply. Scoring 153 with the next highest score in his team 46 .... down 1 test in an away series in SA ...... Rabada, Philander, Morkel, Ngidi, Maharaj bowling ...... superb test innings from Kohli.
  4. Speed and performance of pacers and spinners in important matches

    Bumrah gets Markram LBW in his first over with a 139 k delivery that seamed in a lot.
  5. 100 test wickets for Mohammad Shami

    The most complete test match pacer I have seen from India. Has wicket-taking ability, pace,bounce, ability to seam and reverse swing the ball. Can sustain pace throughout the day. Is reasonably accurate. If only he can maintain his fitness.
  6. 100 test wickets for Mohammad Shami

    Excellent strike rate of 53.9 while reaching 100 wickets.
  7. Speed and performance of pacers and spinners in important matches

    Bumrah bowled in good areas in general and extracted whatever bounce and seam movement was on offer. Only one spell of 2 overs was bad. I expect him to take wickets in the next innings.
  8. You can't reason with inferiority complex.
  9. Nagarkoti's line and length is quite good.
  10. Australians have generally bowled quicker than Indians at the U19 stage. That has been the case till 4 years back. They have also reached full pace at an earlier age than Indians, like Cummins bowling 140 k to 150 k at a very young age. This is the first time I am seeing Indians bowling at this pace as a group in the U19 stage. Also, we are seeing many Ranji pacers picking up speed these days as they play more ... like Saini, Sangwan, Shardul, Aniket C etc.
  11. Speed and performance of pacers and spinners in important matches

    The ball has moved with a certain consistency on day 2 ... both while we were bowling and while they are bowling. There was not much movement yesterday. SA pitches and conditions change nature rather fast.
  12. They were standing side by side today and Nagarkori looked taller than Mavi. Nobody can be sure of these things by watching on TV though..... unless one has been watching the player for many many matches.
  13. RAFbhai .... I am guessing too. Wasim could easily be 6'3". and Srinath was same height. I think most players are taller than the impression we get on TV.
  14. Australians are known for bowling quick .... fastest ball by Australians in this game was 140 k ..... average speed of both Nagarkoti and Mavi were quicker than this by 2 k and 3 k ..... this should give these people some perspective.
  15. Indian fast bowling factory

    Many reasons 1. Much improved economy of India. We have one of the highest GDPs in the world now. This is leading to improved infrastructure and coaching. 2. The above point has also led to Indians becoming more confident and aggressive.... traits needed for bowling quick. 3. Gym and fitness culture ..... pacers have become fitter, stronger and have more stamina. 4. Srinath, Umesh and Aaron made young Indians beleive that Indians too can bowl fast for multiple years. 5. IPL .... gave young Indian cricketers access to international bowling coaches and fitness regimes. They are rubbing shoulders with top international players, bowling to them and becoming more confident. 6. Regular use of speed guns .... young Indian pacers have a quantifiable target to achieve .... Bowling 140 k+. Speed guns have also shown Indians that they can be as quick as anyone in the world and have given them self belief regarding generating high speeds. 7. Quite a few lively pitches in domestic cricket. 8. Captain Kohli likes his pacers to bowl quick .... and youngsters are seeing this. 9. Choosing players from all parts of India, including small towns and vilages. This is giving access to a much larger talent pool. 10. All the above points have brought about fast bowling culture in India ..... and everyone wants to bowl fast and hit the deck hard.
  16. Akram was always said to be 6'2" ..... and Imran looked about 2" shorter than him. If Imran was indeed 6'2" then the height of most pacers is more than what we think. Umesh could be more than 6 feet then.
  17. Yeah .... either 5'11" or 6'0" Even Lillee , Imran were just around 6'0"
  18. Marshall, Waqar, Thomson, Larwood, Tyson, Trueman .... all were less than 6'. One of our best pacers, Shami, is less than 6' too.
  19. Left arm quick Arsdeep Singh He can be pacy too in spells and is quite tall.
  20. He is taller than Mavi
  21. Speed and performance of pacers and spinners in important matches

    Bowling speeds in the 2nd test 1st innings vs SA Bumrah Fastest 148 k Average 140 k Shami Fastest 144 k Average 136 k Ishant Fastest 143 k Average 137 k
  22. So how long is the rope for Saha?

    Some people keep on underestimating the tremendous importance of a good keeper in test cricket.
  23. Speed and performance of pacers and spinners in important matches

    Great bowling performance by the Indians dismissing SA for only 335 on a flat track at their home. Ashwin 4, Ishant 3 and Shami 1 wicket. We have generally bowled in good areas with pace or turn.
  24. What are they saying ?
