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

    I quoted from the BCCI website and provided the link. This was just the 2nd innings ( just a few overs ) These are the first innings speeds I posted earlier in this thread 1st test 1st innings against SL Shami -- Fastest 145 k Average 136 k ( despite dehydration and cramps ) Umesh -- Fastest 141 k Average 135 k ( bowling much slower in the last 4 months. Why ? ) Bhuvi -- Fastest 139 k Average 133 k http://www.bcci.tv/india-v-sri-lanka-2017/match/01
  2. Speed and performance of pacers and spinners in important matches

    On being questioned about Bhuvi's performance, Kohli said that Bhuvi is bowling a heavy ball these days and that is resulting in more wickets. Many of us had talked about this issue earlier and it feels good to see that view being endorsed by an international cricketer.

    1st test 2nd innings against SL Shami -- Fastest 144 k Average 138 k Umesh -- Fastest 140 k Average 137 k ( bowling much slower in the last 4 months. Why ? ) Bhuvi -- Fastest 137 k Average 131 k http://www.bcci.tv/india-v-sri-lanka-2017/match/01
  4. Hasan Ali from Pakistan seems like a fantastic bowler.

    He was running out of steam in test matches.
  5. Hasan Ali from Pakistan seems like a fantastic bowler.

    His strengths according to me 1. Ability to get the ball to bounce extra from just short of good length. For such a short pacer, this ability assumes even more importance. 2. He gets zip off the deck. 3. Knows how to set up batters by combining lengths while keeping lines similar.
  6. Why cricket craze declined so much

    Indian cricket lacks a rivalry like the Indo-Pak rivalry between 1978 and 2008. As it is not possible for us to play Pakistan now, we need to create a new rivalry.
  7. Not including Bumrah is appalling. We have a pacer who combines wicket-taking-ability + accuracy + pace + bounce + seaming ability + ability to learn + international cricket experience ..... and he is not in our plans for SA tests !!!!
  8. 1. Rahul 2. Vijay 3. Pujara 4. Kohli 5. Rahane 6. Shankar / Pandya 7. Saha 8. Jadeja / Ashwin 9. Bhuvi 10. Shami 11. Bumrah / Ishant Shankar on seaming tracks and Pandya on flat tracks Both batting and bowling looks balanced
  9. Vijay Shankar can be a solution Proper batsman and decent support seamer .
  10. Why cricket craze declined so much

    Options available to people, regarding what to do with their free time, have increased many-fold with the advent of smart phones, laptops, internet and loads of TV channels Earlier, cricket was one of maybe 10 options and now it is one of maybe 100 options.
  11. Why cricket craze declined so much

    Smart phones, laptops and loads of TV channels are taking up a lot of free time.
  12. 5 specialist pacers of my choice for SA 1. Shami 2. Bhuvi 3. Bumrah 4. Ishant 5. Ishan Porel ( one unknown, quick and tall pacer can be useful ) Pacer-allrounders -- 1. Pandya 2. Shankar
  13. We slumped from 192 for 1 to 281 for 7 on the 5th day on this pitch .... SL then crashed to 75 for 7. In the post match interviews, players were talking about consistent seam movement, cracks opening up and inconsistent bounce of this pitch on day 5. Batting was not easy on the last day and Kohli was the only one who crossed 30 from either side and went on to make a century.
  14. Playing 11 for Test 2
