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

    Shami is bowling so much better in ODIs than Kaul, Chahar Khaleel, Shardul and Umesh. Good channel balls at the beginning and middle ... nice indipping yorkers and slower balls at the end ... top bouncers throughout. It is a shame he was not played in CT 2017 and all these mediocre guys kept leapfrogging ahead of him in ODIs in 2018. How do you completely ignore a bowler averaging 26 in ODIs, with a superb wickets per match ratio ... and who bowls 135 k to 145 k ! Yes ... rest him in some bilateral ODI series ... don't play him in T20Is ... but at least keep him in the loop. He seems to have solved our 3rd fast bowler woe for WC 2019.

    Got some bounce with a couple of deliveries. But was not going for pace and bounce today at least.

    Speed guns have been correct in Ranji Trophy this season. Saini bowled 144 k, 143 k etc. last match. Kaul bowled 130 k to 140 k in an earlier match ... his normal pace. Pitch was green and zippy.

    In Ranji Aniket C bowled 2 overs today. Was trundling at 130 k to 134 k. Deepak Chahar was super trundling at 120 k to 127 k.

    We need to replace Rayudu from his #4 slot ASAP !!!

    Batting monster out for 24 off 36 balls. SR of 66.67 with required strike rate of 103 when he came in.

    Siraj - not impressed

    Poor in his first 6 overs. But his last 4 overs give me some hope. He is one of those bowlers who becomes more accurate when he bowls quick, meaning that is his nature pace. He is also someone who gets emotional in debut matches ... saw him being very emotional on his T20 debut too. I would play him in the next match too.

    For me, the only reaĺly interesting ODI prospect among young quick bowlers is Nagarkoti. And maybe Mavi. Our test match prospects are much more promising.

    The last 4 overs by Siraj were better than his first 6. We saw some good quick indipping yorkers and a couple of good bouncers. His slower balls are not that good.

    Inaccurate bowlers may take wickets at lower levels ... but they rarely become regular wicket takers at international level.

    Siraj bowled some good indipping yorkers and some poor slower balls in his 9th over. But finishes with a poor full toss. 12 runs off that over plus leg byes.

    But very expensive and inaccurate.

    Rajpoot, Saini and Deshpande are the 3 next-in-line ODI pacers. How they will perform in internationals, nobody can say ... but the selection process has to be based on qualities displayed by pacers till now.

    Good 8th over by Siraj. Just 5 runs. A good yorker and a decent slower ball bowled. Speeds 135 k to 140 k.

    Siraj has a habit of picking wickets in his last spell, even on bad days. Can he emulate it today ?

    Shami picks up Stoinis with a 140 k channel ball. Bowling lots of 140 k to 142 k balls in his 3rd spell too.

    Thing is ... most of our 2000s decade pacers bowled slower than they did in their first 2 years. Bumrah, Umesh and Aaron all bowl or bowled 140 k to 150 k spells in test matches.

    Agree with every point. Even on a bad day, he has to show glimpses of some quality that is supposed to make him an interesting international prospect.

    Good 5th over by Siraj. Some outswing. Better lines and lengths. Economical. But still no zip off the deck. He is not hitting the bat hard enough.
