i know a fast bowler who continuously bowls over 140 and 145 , who's name is varun aaron but the problem is that the new selection comitee headed by sandip patil are not picking him so is request the selecters to please pick him.... he has also made his t20, odi and test debut. he was picked by the previous selectionteam
There is no fast bowler after Kapil. Since we are fools who want to live in fools Paradise. We are united only in Petty Politics,Regionilism,Casteism,Corruption,Incompetence,Inefficiency,non Punctuality &slavery from Kingdom period. So we become tolerent to the point of Animals to bear the above atrocity. We are even selling our voting rights. So we will live in past Glory.We will not select players based on merit & give quoto system & regionism. We will not prepare fast & bouncing pitches. So our players are tigers & lions in INDIA & like mouse in Aus/SA/Eng/WI/NZ. So till BCCI is Governed by dirty Politicians,Businessmen,Crooked players like sunny,shastri & controlled by terrorists thro'benami cine stars there is no scope for any Fast bowlers from India.
Varun's should be able to to do well in the current ODI series, although he had a 1-off game when he went 0-66 and gave up a last ball six.
The line-n-length MRF "medium" pace academy helps budding bowlers to train for the big leagues and some of the youngsters have had trouble with the yorkers, slower ones and cutters in the initial stages.
Varun's profile even though he has pace, suits more as a versatile bowler as well and which is why I rated him higher than Umesh Yadav.
The advantage Yadav had over Varun was that he had 69 wickets in the domestics at an average of 25.91, where Varun did not play much in the domestics.
The eco rates of Ishant and Sreesanth in the 1-dayers has been 5.71 and 6.01 and had to rested for the Test matches since ODI eco rates of 5 and below is the acceptable rate which both Munaf and Zaheer have proven to have achieved.
On the other hand, Dale Steyn has an eco rate of about 5.25 along with Gul who has an eco rate of 5.01, since the arrival of free hits and power plays the bar had to lowered.
The data we have from Kapil, Srinath and Zaheer show a gradual increase in eco rates. Kapil was 3.71, Srinath at 4.5 and Zaheer now at 4.91.
I would say the designated target now should be lowered to 5.25 from 5.0 or below because of the change in the batsmen oriented one day game.
Varun's can hopefully meet this target with his pace and bowling SR should be better. Let us wait and see.
First, BCCI will be after you. They will hire some batsmen to guide your bowling who will screw your ambition up. If that fails. IPL will get you! Only focus is to bowl underarm or overarm to be economical and screw up your bowling!! If that fails, our Indian pitch will mess you up!! If that fails, you will be our Brett Lee!
There was a similar article about Munaf Patel on rediff couple of years back with a kind of similar picture. Today Munaf is a complete off spinner who can bowl occasional medium pace. Aaron - If any bowling coach/management/caption/etc ever ever tells to reduce pace and concetrate on Line, Length and other BS show him ur middle finger. ;)
