  1. I feel that our fast bowling revolution is due to atleast 20 different factors ... and Arun is one of those factors.
  2. I would like to see highlights of some top test matches rather regularly. My top picks would be the tests we played in 2018 and 2019, where our fast bowling unit was on fire.
  3. Would be looking forward to this series.
  4. He was returning from injury early this year. Bumrah was devastating in tests in Australia in 2018-19 as he was in tests in SA, England and the WI in 2018.
  5. Hostile spell by Shami in Australia https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=v6S_4EgW3es
  6. Devastating bowling by Bumrah in Australia. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=svJkadBf8Z4
  7. Hi bro ! I hope you and your family are safe during these tough times.
  8. A young Bumrah bowling. He was still awesome then. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=7nTxaFiyw2I
  9. Being a good bowler does not need one to be the fastest bowler. Ambrose was a much better bowler than the quicker Patterson. Akram was better than the much quicker Akhtar. McGrath was better than Lee. What is needed is having sufficient pace and / or bounce to hurry batsmen regularly and show hostility to gain psychological advantage. And sustaining pace is very important too for long format bowlers. Most Indian and Pakistani pacers have sufficient pace and bounce now. It is the other factors which will determine or have determined how they will evolve or have evolved as bowlers.
  10. Shami, with his extra pace and skiddy reverse swinging balls, could have been difficult to handle on this low pitch.
  11. At the end of the day, actual performances are what will count. Rahul has turned a corner and must go on in the same vein.
  12. McGrath's pace is very under-rated. Regular speed gun usage was not there when he was in his 20s. People just remember him bowling 132 k at age 35. But in 1999 WC, he was regularly bowling 135 k to 142 k. Plus he got steep bounce on a regular basis throughout his career.
  13. Saini was the Man of the Series in the T20I series vs the WI. Was dropped in the very next 3 T20I games. Kuldeep took a 5 fer in the last test in Australia,. Doing that in a test in SENA is no joke for a spinner. Has not played s test since then. Pant scored 2 centuries in the last 5 tests he played in the 2018-19 season. But was dropped for the 5 tests in the entire home season of 2019. Iyer was averaging 40+ at a SR of 100+ when he was dropped from the ODI squad in 2018. Nair was dropped in the very next test after scoring 303. And has played just 2 more tests in the next 40 months since then. Vihari was the Man of the Series in tests in the WI. But Rahane was the default choice as the 5th batsman whenever we played 5 batters in the next 2 series. The policy of this team is clear. A youngster will get chances only if an older player of similar profile is injured or unavailable. Current ability or form are not the considerations. Whenever such things happen, youngsters are bound to lose confidence.
  14. Akashdeep 3 for 41 Saurashtra. 206 for 5 Bengal's quickest bowler has picked up most top order wickets on a flat pitch.
  15. Wicket is flat. I am interested in seeing how Porel bowls on such tracks. Medium fast bowlers often look good if the ball is moving ... but look innocuous if there is no movement. We need all-condition pacers.
