express bowling got a reaction from Straight Drive in Team for Australia series
We can't develop a player with so few games left before the WC. Where is the time to give him a consistent run ?
Rahul is definitely not a finished product yet for the ÒDI format
And in ODIs, it is not just about building an innings but also about rotating strike constantly under pressure.
express bowling got a reaction from BrantFUGH in Navdeep Saini bowling with genuine pace now
Fast bowler Navdeep Saini has been doing well for our A-team and in other FC matches in recent times. Picked up 7 wickets from 2 FC matches on the last A-tour to SA.
Today, in a Ranji semi-final, speeds were being shown. As @Mosher pointed out in the Ranji thread, his speeds were
Fastest 144.4 k
Average 138.6 k
Bowled quite a few 144 k and 143 k balls. That is very good pace in a domestic 5-day match
He was sustaining pace and intensity in his last spell of the day too and that is an important trait for an aspiring test pacer
He gets zip off the deck , hits the bat hard and has a good bouncer.
Can swing and reverse swing the ball and gets seam movement also.
Was bowling in good areas today, mostly targeted at around top of off stump...... picked up 2 wickets and could have had another on a pitch not offering much movement
FC stats ... average 24.5 .... SR 53.8 .... very good
Should be sent to SA as a net bowler and considered as a serious contender for a future test slot.

Pant(reserve wk/middle order bat)
Unless either rahul,pant or shankar fail completely in the upcoming series i am sure this is the team that will go to england based on the team picked against australia.

Check properly. I am sharing 3 links so that you can refer easily. He was pathetic in ODI. Those 80 runs innings were in FC.
13 runs in 25 balls sr 52
42 runs in 77 balls sr 54.54
0 runs in 1 balls sr 0

Unadkat, who has only sporadically played for India since his debut in 2010, is suddenly back in contention after a good Ranji Trophy season where he led Saurashtra to the final.
Unadkat is a matured bowler now with more variations and an increase in pace. He is also more experienced courtesy his IPL stints.
FFS hope the 4th pacer is not Unadcutter. Selectors are *ing dumb if they pick Unadkat based on his Ranji performances. Saini/Rajpoot need to be given chances instead of recycling tried and tested spinners.

Take out test cricket and all that is left is a masala game.T20 is just entertainment and money,nobody gains respect from t20s.Even in ODIs,only knockout trophies have enduring value.I certainly wouldnt watch cricket if test cricket wasn't there,just tune in once during ODI world cups.
