    ShoonyaSifar got a reaction from Suhaan in Pakistan is producing the likes of Shaheen Shah and Naseem Shah whilst India is producing nothing   
    What exactly are we complaining? Our fast bowling reserves have never been better. Unfortunately our coach and captain have no faith in younger seamers and would prefer to stick with Bhuvi, Chahar and Shardul. Else Saini and Prasidh Krishna if picked for the right formats are not bad choices at all. Need to be given some confidence and a proper run. 
     
    BTW here are comparative stats from pace bowlers over the last two years
     
    Tests: IND 13 tests. 160 wickets@19, Pak 14 Tests, 113 wickets@33
    ODIs: IND 36 ODIs.152 wickets@32, Pak 28 ODIs, 112 wickets@37
    T20Is: IND 30 T20Is. 101 wickets@25, Pak 19 T20Is, 50 wickets@34
     
    Our pacers have been producing the results. The other set seems to be more hype and less performance, as has always been the case with Pakistani obsession for phasssst bowling. 
     
    If pace alone is the criteria, in this IPL alone we have had Saini, Prasidh, Mavi, Nagerkotti, Tushar, Rajpoot  all hitting peak speeds of 145+ and Natarajan and Siraj around the 140 mph mark.

    ShoonyaSifar got a reaction from Laaloo in Thala didn’t see any spark in youngsters   
    The same guy got seniors kicked out from international cricket to establish his authority and run the team in an autocratic way. However, when it comes to franchise cricket, he has exact opposite opinion for some reason. 
     
    I am glad he's horribly out of form and is getting exposed match after match. Totally deserves this humiliation and a disgraceful ending to his career. It's cringing to see his PR still trying to manage things by focussing on one of two good catches, or Start Sports commentators trying to show his discussions with bowlers as some work of genius. I do hope he has the guts to drop himself midway of the tournament to make way for Jagdeeshan.

    ShoonyaSifar got a reaction from speedheat in KL Rahul has got the Orange Cap, but it's hurting Kings XI Punjab   
    Kohli PR at work to downplay KL Rahul's growing stature in T20. He's quite clearly the best Indian T20 batsman, how can the Kohli PR brigade accept it.
     
    BTW among Itop 15 batsmen, only Mayank (159) and Dhawan (143) have got a better strike rate than Rahul (136) among Indian players. Look at this list below
    Mayank 159
    Dhawan 143
    Rahul 135
    Iyer 132
    Rohit 129
    Rayudu 129
    Kohli 127
    Paddikal 122
    Gill 122

    ShoonyaSifar got a reaction from speedheat in Should Pakistani players be allowed to play in the IPL?   
    What exactly do they bring to the IPL? In an earlier when we did not have pacers bowling 140+, they still brought some variety, now we have so many of our own pacers clocking 145+.They have not been missed at all. I wouldn't want them anywhere near the IPL.
