    Sran , when fully fit, bowls 130 k to 142 k range and can occasionally go upto 145 k. I have seen him bowl quite quickly in FC cricket even. The slowest I have seen him bowl is 127 k to 137 k range.

  5. Bhuvi should play as the 4th pacer'cum bowling-allrounder in tests in Australia. We need 5 bowling options and someone who can bat somewhat at No.8. Bhuvi can't be a top 3 pacer in Australia, unless there is a greentop. My lower order in tests in Australia. 6. Pant 7. Jadeja 8. Bhuvi 9. Ishant 10. Shami 11. Bumrah
  6. Speedguns are not operated ball by ball by humans in international cricket matches. The quality of the equipment picked and the setting up process have some human judgement factor. Bumrah was bowling consistently quick with the same speedguns in use. Khaleel gets zip and bounce off the deck ... so he looks quicker than his release speeds suggest.

    Absolutely ! Dravid did support Mavi a lot during his U19 days. I think they are trying to follow a process now and mainly including those players in A-teams, who have performed in the respective formats in domestic cricket. Shaw and Pant did very well in FC and Khaleel in List A and domestic T20s. ( There are exceptions like Deepak Chahar though, who has got a A-team berth for the unofficial tests without any notable season in FC. recently. He must have some very powerful backers ) I feel exceptions need to be made for exceptional talents like Mavi ... unless they felt that an A-team berth may mess his FC season and ensuing FC experience.

    Shivam Mavi 10 wickets from his first 2 FC matches. Includes a 5-fer and a 4-fer. All the best kid !

    I am very very happy. In my book, Mavi is the best uncapped fast bowling prospect we have in the country now ... as he combines express pace, natural bounce, big inswing and decent accuracy at such a young age. It bodes well if he picks lots of wickets.
  10. I had posted the fastest balls bowled in the Asia Cup before the final match. Khaleel was the 2nd fastest bowler of the tournament behind Bumrah, among all the teams ... and he bowled lots of 140 k to 145 k balls, even though he played just 2 matches.
  11. As I keep on saying ... it does not have to be an " either / or " scenario. If we want to develop all condition pacers who can reach the top ... we need to find pacers who combine pace and bounce with skills and temperament. Bhuvi has suffered because he lacks pace and bounce. Umesh has suffered because he lacks sufficient skills and temperament. Both are incomplete pacers and not long term answers. I don't won't Khaleel to be another incomplete pacer. But Khaleel was bowling 138 k to 148 k in domestic LO matches. And he bowled 133 k to 143 k / 145 k in the Asia Cup. And he bowled well in all those tournaments and displayed a lot of skills. And that is the whole point of this thread. It is not as if he is a skilled medium pacer who needs to increase his pace. He has the natural pace and has displayed a lot of skills at that good pace. So, why does he need to drop so much pace ? Shami has been allowed to play only 6 ODIs in the last 42 months. That too 1 or 2 ODIs at a time at huge gaps. How can you expect him to settle down in this format with such a treatment meted out ! When Shami was a regular in ODIs, he averaged 25.

    Mavi has taken 2 of the 3 wickets to fall so far in the 2nd innings.
  15. Rajpoot was in the squad for the last 4-day A-team series. Players get rotated in these games and don't play every match. He played the first Unofficial test of that series.
