    No at all, not sure about speed guys. Both guys were able to clock 138k in first round. Rana Adil is just 19 years old and other guy also from Faisalabad is 23(4 year older then Adil).

    That's with a tape ball. These trials are with a cricket ball.

    Correct, he will gain some pace we are working on it. Also just to let you guys know that Rana Adil is my younger bother. Bye the way one of the guy from Islamabad hit 137, but that was a no ball.

    After camp we are going to improve fitness level more, I wanted him to be the best in the rest, hope for the best.

    I will be getting more info and I will share with you all.

    Quotes from Intikhab Alam and Dav Whatmore re today's Round 2 trials in Lahore

    "We were looking for bowlers who can clock at 140kph, but unfortunately, we didn't find any today." Intikhab Alam
    "We'll not be announcing any winners as we are waiting for the outcome of the Karachi trials. The top speed here was 136kph." Intikhab Alam
    "The main problem which bowlers are facing is their physical fitness. The bowlers who rolled their arms today were not fit." Intikhab Alam
    "We have set standards for the centrally contracted players and will arrange fitness camps for these bowlers as well." Intikhab Alam
    "We will conduct beep tests for these bowlers in a bid to enhance their levels of fitness." Intikhab Alam

    "It must be a very difficult task to find fast bowlers in Pakistan as it is a big country." Dav Whatmore
    "These trials should be organised every year as it will aid in discovering the hidden talent." Dav Whatmore
    "The fitness is a very major issue. You don't need to bowl one fast delivery every over, you need to be consistent." Dav Whatmore
    "Bowling fast is necessary, but you should also stick to your line and length and bowl in the right channel." Dav Whatmore
    "There is a vast talent in Pakistan. It just needs to be identified, hence proper structure should be in place." Dav Whatmore

    Ian Pont is fast bowling coach and consultant. Adil will definitely improve his speed if you contact him.

    dude, increasing your pace is not something you should dream about
    what ian pont says is the drop step front foot block, it takes about 400 to 1000 tries without using a bowl to incorporate it in your style, further you have to condition your knees so that they can sustain any stress.
    And i agree that if you do that drop step stuff the pace will increase, not to mention minor adjustments in the style. But to do that you need to have an initiative a drive, which people dont have.
