    Opposite - he doesn't even look like 21, but I do believe he is around 22-23 now. Came to know about the kid in 2013-14 & someone told me that he is genuine 18, which is about 4.5 years back.

    His fastest I have seen is 143.4KM, that's shed below 90mph. But, those could be technical error as well. But, he is indeed capable of reaching 140+ with effort ball even now. Unless it's a green top or hard cracked wicket, extra pace won't help his cutters, hence he doesn't try to bowl fast. If he is completely fit, he'll clock 144KM in CT.

    I call this difference of opinion. He is still young, it wont matter if he is 2 years older since he is not a genuine fast bowler rather a guy who bowls variations with an odd one 139-141k

    Extremely overrated bowler.

    He isn't the same bowler as we all initially thought him to be. His secret code has already been cracked by most of the batsmen. He'll never be as threatening as he was during on the past.

    He is struggling in the CT because there is zero purchase for the pace bowlers, atleast in the matches he has played in.

    Played 2 complete matches, was ordinary against England, did Ok against NZ. However, he did beat the edge so many times its frustrating he didn't get many wickets.

    He hasn't been as penetrative because he has been inconsistent with his line and length. When he bowls good lines he is a tough bowler to face. Also, since injury he has struggled a bit with pace but gradually will improve.

    Courtney Walsh trying to bring the old Mustafizur Rahman back in action

    Injuries affect fast bowlers and that s the truth. Ask the likes of Zaheer Khan, Shaun Tait, Mohammad Shami and the rest. Another fast bowler who has gone through the same difficult phase in his life is Mustafizur Rahman. Fizz , who was described last year as a special talent by David Warner, his Sunrisers Hyderabad captain at Indian Premier League last year, had to undergo shoulder surgery after picking up an injury while playing in the NatWest T20 Blast in August.

    The injury ruled him out of action for five months. Since the time he has made a comeback, he has not shown the same Fizz that the world used to know. Before injury, Mustafizur had picked up 26 wickets in 9 ODIs, 22 in 13 T20Is and 4 wickets in 2 Tests. The numbers took a drastic fall after his comeback as he has been able to pick up just 31 wickets in 19 matches (2 Tests, 13 ODIs and 4 T20Is).

    Courtney Walsh, bowling coach of Bangladesh, is working closely with Mustafizur and providing him useful tips and tricks to improve. It is too early to say anything apart from the fact that he is responding very well in the training sessions, Walsh told Cricbuzz after a one-on-one session with Mustafizur. "We are trying to make him bowl [from] close to the wicket but that is not the only thing as we are trying some other stuff as well."

    Walsh has also requested Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) to allow Mahbub al Jaki to be a part of his training program. Jaki is supposed to have identified the talent of Mustafizur during his early days and has played a huge role in the development of the fast bowler. We are trying to make him understand what his major strength is and looking forward to develop that, said Jaki.

    It is true that after the comeback he has bowled a lot away from the stumps and there can be several reasons behind it, but as he could not achieve much success we made him realize that he needs to go back to his old bowling formula. At present, we are making him bowl in just three to four steps close to the wicket so that it gets seated into his subconscious mind so that later when he comes to bowl in full force he is able to bowl close to the wicket without making much effort, added Jaki.

    The presence of Walsh in the dressing room has also benefited other Bangladeshi bowlers. Kamrul Islam, a right-arm fast bowler, says Walsh s feedback has helped him to a great extent to be a more effective bowler: With the guidance of Walsh, I have improved my balance while bowling and also have made some technical amendments that I hope would make my bowling more effective. I could not deliver in-swingers but currently I have been trying to master it. As a bowler, I have been trying to perfect the skills that I have already acquired. That s where my focus lies currently."

    Even though fizz has lost his initial mojo he's still the second best fast bowler in limited overs cricket after M. STARC.

    Bcb must kick out useless Walsh if they wanna get back the old Mustafizur. Walsh is absolutely useless. Bangla need H. Streak again as the bowling coach again.

    Bangla can also approach kumble for the position of head coach. His headmaster type attitude might be really beneficial for the bangla team.

    Walsh so far hasn't proved to be an effective coach. There haven't been any noticeable improvements made by young bowlers such as Mustafiz, Taskin, Rubel and the others since he took over. Mashrafe at this stage of his career knows his game and can guide himself. What are Walsh's coaching credentials? As far as I know he has only served as a selector since retiring. Was he only appointed based on his legendary playing career?

    As soon as you remove the comfort blanket of the low and sluggish home wickets, India bullied and humiliated Bangladesh bowling for the minnows that they are....

    Do you even understand quality level of Starc, a world cup winner pedigree fast bowler.

    Fizz bowls off cutters as a stock delivery. This is not a fast bowler.

    Even mentioning him in the same breath as Starc is nothing short of blasphemy.

    @Shutdown Corner checked his stats in that series. not that bad. Barely bowled in the first test due to spin domination.

    match figures of 0/21 after bowling 9 overs.

    second test he took 5/100. overall thats not the worst figures u could get.
