  1. All English pacers bowling 130 to 140 k mostly. Haven't seen much real pace yet. Only occasional quick deliveries by Plunkett.

    We need Aaron and Bumrah together in all formats

    Earlier this year, in limited over matches, Khaleel was bowling in good areas at high pace. Hitting the deck hard and getting small seam movement and good bounce. And was bowling good yorkers and slower balls in the end-overs. Had a good bouncer too. All this resulted in him having really good domestic 50-over and 20-over 2017-18 season and earned him a berth in our 50-over A-team, where he performed again. He bowled somewhat similarly in the Asia Cup too. But, after that, either Zak or Arun or both tried to " improve " his bowling action and ball release. And these aspects are sort of messed up now. Now, he has lost pace and is just placing the ball there. If there is no swing on offer ( which is most of the time ) Khaleel is looking rather innocuous with low pace, inadequate seam movement and not sufficient bounce. Have we lost another promising pacer to bowling action and ball release tinkering !!
  3. Shami bowled 21 overs today. Blatant violation of BCCI diktat by Bengal captain. Should be punished for this.

    Australian medium pacer ... Beherendorf ... 43 runs off 4 overs. Australia playing 3 medium pacers ... the others being Tye and Stoinis. Only 1 fast bowler in Stanlake.

    Zaheer himself said on TV about advising Khaleel regarding a few things during the WI series. Which is why I am strongly again Zaheer becoming our bowling coach.

    Indian pace bowling in LOIs is back to the 1990s. One fast bowler in Bumrah ( Srinath in the 1990s ). And lots of trundlers in Khaleel, Bhuvi Kaul, Chahar etc.

    Now Khaleel drops an easy catch off a rising short ball by Bumrah. Needs to work on his fielding.

    Trying to change pacers' actions and ball releases have destroyed many Indian pacers in the 2000s and 1990s. Bharat Arun doing the same now with Khaleel and Umesh.

    Khaleel 14 runs from his 3rd over too. 42 runs from 3 overs now. The Team management want consistency ... and Khaleel is consistently going at 14 runs an over.

    Even in ODIs. They cannot comprehend a lot of things.

    Khaleel's line and length today isn't that good either. Plus ... line and length have to be coupled with either pace or bounce or movement or all the qualities together preferably.

    He is not bowling with any kind of effort bro ! Just placing the ball gently. We have 2 trunders now bowling under 133 k with no movement.

    Khaleel 28 runs from 2 overs. Just placing the ball gently at medium pace and batters tonking him for big 6s. No pace ... not sufficient bounce even in Australia ... no movement ... no effort ! Disappointing !!!!

    Khaleel looked very slow in his first over. Speeds 127 k to 132 k.

    Khaleel Wicket off his first ball ... a length ball that bounced a bit extra.

    Bhuvi has gone back to his original pace of 125 k to 135 k in the last few months.
  18. Gavaskar wanted to drop Kuldeep desperately. One of the reasons he used for that ... he wants the 2 spinners to turn the ball in different directions ... Krunal plays as the batsman and turn the ball away from the right hander ... so the other spinner should turn the ball into the right hander ... which ofcourse is Kuldeep in reality ... but somehow, in Gavaskar's mind, that is Chahal. Classic case of personal bias showing ... and getting caught up in wrong logic.

    Mavi 21 - 6 - 44 - 4 Another 4-fer for Mavi and economy rate of just 2.10. Picking wickets again and not giving away runs. Superb ! Rajpoot 25.2 - 7 - 74 - 4

    Ankit Rajpoot has taken 14 wickets from his first 2 Ranji matches. And 3 more wickets in the unfinished 1st innings of the 3rd match. He was arbitrarily and unfairly dropped from the 4-day A-team. Good reply by him. Why would we not want to develop a tall and accurate fast-medium pacer, who has both bounce and swing, is beyond me !!!!

    Shivam Dubey is a highly underrated allrounder. Medium-fast ... but tall , bouncy and accurate. And big hitter. Should be playing for India-A as we need backup seamer allrounders.
