    express bowling got a reaction from UrmiSinhaRay in Pre-IPL 2019 discussion thread !!!   
    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.

    He should play in place of Pandya as our 5th bowler.

    I believe he was injured recently..I know you'll reply "then how is he playing"  Not sure if he has recovered fully from that.

    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.

    NZ 71/0. Chahar going for more than 5rpo. Saini too has been a bit expensive.

    Exactly  !
     
    And Khaleel used to bowl 135 k to 145 k too and even higher.  Just needs to go back to that.
     
    His skillsets are really impressive and near-complete as you pointed out.

    Will be such a regressive step. His selection as a keeper in the test side is blatantly wrong. I hope we don't make the mistake of picking him in the Test 11 now.

    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.

    express bowling got a reaction from UrmiSinhaRay in Khaleel Ahmed needs to go back to bowling 138 kph to 148 kph ... like he was doing in early 2018   
    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.

    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.

    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.
