Would have taken Labuschagnes wicket but Bumrah dropped a catch. Against Bangladesh Ishant and Umesh got the wickets but Shami was also nasty to face.

But I see your point.

Is Hardik bowling though?

 

 

Plus Shami could not bowl in the 2nd innings.

 

Shami brings a lot of hostility to the attack plus the ability to pick a wicket every 49 balls.

Mohammad Shami and 

Navdeep Saini

 are likely to join the Indian team from the third Test against England in Ahmedabad.

 

The two pacers have recovered from their respective injuries and have been asked by the team management to not play the Vijay Hazare one-day tournament from Feb 20. The selectors are slated to announce the team for the next two Tests after the second Test ends in Chennai.

Why not turn Navdeep into an out and out genuine pacer to force results giving him short spells and ask him to bowl as fast as he could

Anyway Saini has gone down in the pecking order i believe

You mean, expect Virat Kohli to 'think' and come up with such a solution? 

Its a good idea, but the Indian team doesnt have that kind of foresight.

Saini is a little overrated in the  long format from what I saw. He cannot land the ball at will at a good line and length . Apart from the 3 experienced quicks - bumrah , ishant and shami , the only one who can do that is siraj. Which is why it us imperative that he regains pace. A Siraj who is 5ks quicker and with the same skillset would be terrific.

It is easier to master line and length and movement than gain pace after early 20s.

Siraj was quick just 2 years ago. They just need to identify the reasons for his loss of pace. That front knee of his  collapses way too much  currently . He hasnt had any back stress fracture of the back or anything that can cause a permanent loss in pace. He doesnt need a whole lot either. 5ks quicker and a higher release from a fully braced knee would do wonders

I think we choose to be fast in judging why someone has lost pace. At times, we should also introspect as to why someone bowled quick on a particular day. What if the days Siraj bowled fast, he was in good rhythm? What if Siraj has been choosing to bowl at a pace he is most comfortable with? 

There are days when bowlers are in great rhythm and just naturally bowl quick. And vice versa. 

 

I see no reason why Siraj at this point should stress himself out on bowling quick. He may just be bowling at his comfortable best. Its not as if batsmen are hitting him out of the park for his pace. On the contrary, he is bowling well, scaring the batsmen and outsmarting them. If he increases his pace, well and good. But if he keeps taking wickets at this pace, who cares?
