    There used to be a time when thoughts of Indian bowlers clocking 145 kph mark, or 90 mph, was seen as fanciful. However, current India pace bowlers have shown that they are capable of really fast deliveries.

    At the ICC U-19 world Cup opening league clash between India and Australia at the Bay Oval, Maunganui in New Zealand, 18-year-old Kamlesh Nagarkoti, an India pacer from Rajasthan, bowled consistently in excess of 145 kph with one express delivery touching 149 kph.

    After India amassed 328/7 thanks to skipper Prithvi Shaw’s 94, 86 from Manjot Kalra and 63 from Shubman Gill, Australia started their chase confidently.

    But after two solid overs from Nagarkoti, the 15th over of Australia’s chase changed the complexion of the match.

    After bowling the first ball at 144 kph, Nagarkoti got Max Bryant with a 144 kph delivery. The third delivery, at 146 kph to the Australian skipper Jason Sangha, was close to the off-stump. After conceding a four on the fourth ball and bowling the fifth at 144 kph, the final delivery was clocked at 147 kph, which got the cricket world talking.

    Syed Mushtaq Ali Twenty20 Trophy: Bengal register third straight win
    After a pacy three-over spell, Nagarkoti came back in the 35th over and again bowled three deliveries at 143, 145 and 145 and got the wicket of Austin Waugh, son of former Australia skipper Steve Waugh.

    Following the wicket maiden and a decent sixth over, Nagarkoti cleaned up Will Sutherland, the son of Cricket Australia CEO James Sutherland, with a 145 kph thunderbolt in his seventh over. His superb spell of 7-1-29-3 complemented the batting display and ensured the Rahul Dravid-coached Indian cricket team’s 100-run win.

    Nagarkoti found out he had produced a scorching 149 kph delivery off the fourth ball of his sixth over, 37th of Australia’s innings.

    “In England in a televised game, someone told me it was 143 kph. Today, I was told it’s 149,” cricket website wisdenindia.com quoted Nagarkoti as saying after the match.

    Nagarkoti’s magnificent bowling is the latest of India’s glory moments in ICC U-19 World Cups. Virat Kohli’s side and Unmukt Chand’s team won the title, in 2008 and 2012 respectively. In the 2014 World Cup, Chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav took a hat-trick against Scotland, the first by an Indian bowler in the tournament’s history.

    With his display against Australia, Indian fans will be hoping Nagarkoti’s career too gathers pace like his deliveries.

    Making too big a deal of one bowler clocking 90MPH. Good achievement at that age, but does not mean much in the big scheme of things. Have already seen what happened to Varun Aaron.

    Lets not hype a 17 year old. We have in the past hyped a lot of u19 players like Chand and he is nowhere near team selection now. We need to let these players develop and if after a year or so if they are making headlines in domestic cricket, then they will get their due chances.

    149 (if thats an accurate reading) is serious pace for an 18 yo even in England or Australia. Lockie Ferguson is getting oohs and aahs for that pace and he's a grown man.

    Indian under 19 fast bowlers have pace beautiful action and possess great talent. As they are not very strongly built, the only challenge for them will be to keep themselves injury free and stay fit. Many young fast bowler exert too much effort to bowl fast, injure themselves and end up changing their action and become another medium fast.

    Chand must be the biggest disappointment, so far. The knock he played in the WC final was pure-Kohli. He even managed the edgy fool at the other end and ensured no wicket was thrown away to nerves..

    I would like to congratulate Indian posters for finding some Ďrealí fast-bowlers!

    With the emergance of the youngsters and seniors like Bumrah, India now have a pretty solid bowling-unit as its spin department has always been top notch.

    Hopefully we also find some good batting talent...

    pakistanis trust bowling instincts, indians trust batting instincts. they will induct any talented youngster into the batting line up and every now and again they get a gem.

    also with shami, bumrah, yadav, ishant, bhuveneshwar, etc, they dont need any quickies any time soon.

    To be in the Indian team, they need to be better than Shami and Bumrah, doubt anyone in Asia, let alone India is better than those two.

    Mavi is playing domestics and so is Porel. Mavi has done very well.

    Nagarkoti got injured and was out for more than a year. He is now fit and with the India U23 squad.

    But for the pandemic, it would have been the third successive Indian Premier League (IPL) season for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) without young fast bowlers Shivam Mavi and Kamlesh Nagarkoti. When the franchise invested Rs 6.2 crore on them in January 2018, they were teens who had exploded in the Under-19 World Cup. Since then, the journey has been so fraught with injuries that cricket, at best, was an interruption.

    After a good debut at Eden Gardens where his first wicket was former KKR captain Gautam Gambhir, Mavi played eight games in 2018 and missed IPL 2019. Three seasons with KKR, Nagarkoti is yet to pull on the purple shirt because he hasn’t played competitive cricket since February 2018. That could finally change in the UAE where KKR begin on September 23 against defending champions Mumbai Indians.

    “If I get a game, I will tell myself that I am realising a dream. Now I feel like I can handle anything,” says Nagarkoti. “With three-four days to go, I am at almost 100 percent,” says Mavi.

    “Nagarkoti has become very strong. They are both bowling at over 140(kmph) and that is challenging for any batsmen,” says KKR batsman Nitish Rana.

    In separate interviews to Hindustan Times from Abu Dhabi where KKR are based, Mavi and Nagarkoti spoke on the importance of staying positive and how the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru was a home away from home. It was at NCA that they mended stress fractures and back injuries. They are occupational hazards of being a quick; Mavi and Nagarkoti’s breakdowns possibly compounded by the fact their bodies weren’t fully mature for such rigour.

    “NCA is a great place for rehab. They give you a clear schedule so you know when you have a gym session and when you need to go for a run. Also, good physios are hard to find in India but at NCA they have so many good physios that you get a positive buzz,” says Mavi.

    It was at NCA, Nagarkoti met Varun Aaron, the Jharkhand and Rajasthan Royals fast bowler who has played nine Tests and nine One-day Internationals. “He (Aaron) said he too had a lot of problems with his back and had to remodel his action and get stronger. And Rahul Dravid would speak from time to time. He would tell me that the more positive you are, the more you think of cricket the better you will be. Work as hard as you can to ensure that you don’t have to go through such times again,” says Nagarkoti. Dravid, head of cricket at NCA, was the under-19 coach in the 2018 World Cup which India won.

    Dravid had also told Nagarkoti about Pat Cummins’ struggle with injuries before becoming the world’s No.1 Test bowler. Cummins will be a teammate and Nagarkoti has said injury-management would be a big part of their conversation once he joins after Australia’s tour of England.

    Nagarkoti also draws inspiration from Ashish Nehra’s long-drawn battle with injuries in an international career that spanned nearly 9 years. “He kept coming back, his last comeback after so many years was a great achievement,” says Nagarkoti referring to Nehra, then almost 37, returning to the India T20 team in 2016 after five years. “He (Nehra) always tells me if you are a pace bowler, you will have to deal with some problem or the other. How you handle it, how you get stronger is entirely up to you. He has inspired me to get stronger.”

    Back after long spells of no cricket - Mavi’s hasn’t played after his back played up in December 2019 - KKR’s Kiwi bowling coach Kyle Mills eased them into nets in the UAE last month. Mills, says Mavi, has been good “because he has a lot of international experience and clear answers to everything we ask at nets.” Mavi says Mills also gives a lot of options and letting the bowler choose what is best at nets.

    That the wickets would tire and aid spinners going deeper into the tournament has been a recurrent theme ahead of IPL13. On Thursday, Mumbai Indians’ skipper Rohit Sharma referred to the Asia Cup in 2018 where “there was a lot of difference between the wicket in the first game and the final.” Sharma also spoke about the need to adjust the length and said some reverse swing would happen.

    Mavi, 21, accepts the strips wouldn’t be pacer-friendly like Eden which has led to KKR investing in young Indians fast bowlers ¨- Nagarkoti is 20 and Prasidh Krishna 24 - but says it won’t be too different from playing in Delhi where it is dry. “At practice, we have got used to that somewhat. After a couple of games, we will be used completely. It won’t be as if we are going to play in England.”

    For the first time since they were signed as cubs, Shubman Gill, Mavi and Nagarkoti are available for KKR. Mavi and he talk a lot about workload and if the “body is feeling tight,” says Nagarkoti. “For India under-19, we had a good partnership,” says Mavi. Both took nine wickets in six games in the World Cup where Gill finished with 372 runs and Tom Banton, who joined KKR this season, 233.

    In the time they repaired their bodies, Gill established himself as a top-order batsman with four half-centuries in 27 games over two seasons. Banton too has caught the eye in the Big Bash and for England. Mavi and Nagarkoti know they have some catching up to do.

    very difficult to get into the indian team. I would like to see these young pacers play in t20 for india but now its seems like all the established stars want to hog the limelight even in t20s too as it increases their brand value. Its really unfortunate but in india once you establish yourself as a star, its very hard to get displaced.

    I hope we can use these young kids atleast for bilaterals in odi and t20. However to attract crowds that would again be a huge issue as people genuinely want to see the super star players play rather than young unknown prospects.

    AUstralia and england never worry about playing their key players in bilaterals especially aussies. Starc and even smith seldom ever play bilaterals. They are always well rested for tests and WCs hence they remain fresh whilst top players from india in particular have a very busy and packed schedule.

    Tuned in and watched him bowling for Kolkata. His body doesnt seem to have grown much (Height looks less than Musa). Is bowling late 130s and few early 140s kph which I think is decent pace post injury but nothing to write home about and not really close to what the impression was.

    Needs to improve his fitness and physique a lot, not good enough for a 20 year old in my opinion considering he has had back issues as well. He needs to get stronger to keep on playing cricket and especially if he wants to play longer formats. I understand he is coming back from injury but, he should have put on some muscle and overall strength during rehabilitation which is important while recovering from back injuries so that chance of reoccurrence can be reduced.

    Finally makes his IPL debut. Great to see him bowl after nearly 30 months. Bowled mostly in late 130s and a few above 140. Has made a few minor tweaks to his action.

    Not bad for someone who hasn't played a competitive match for so long. He will only get better from here as he becomes more confident about his fitness and body.

    Man anything and everything is better than that Musa please don’t even mention him in anything related to cricket it’s a disgrace for Pakistan for giving him a test debut in Australia. On the other Nagarkoti is a serious bowler if you don’t know he was suffered a severe injury which really affected his career a lot because he was basically out for like 2-3 years. His pace is still great and it’s only gonna get better even his line and length are very good too he’s still young on top I’m not saying he will be a great but way better than musa nothing wrong in admitting that India has some better young fast bowlers than us coming through

    I mentioned Musa with regards to his height. I also mentioned Nagarkoti's back injury and how he should have worked upon overall body strength during rehabilitation.

    I am a cricket fan and I have thoroughly praised other players and teams including India (Anyone can see my posts in different threads) however, I cant say that some of the young Indian bowlers are something extraordinary or better than Pakistani counterparts.

    But, hey thats just my opinion and we can all agree to disagree. Players develop and deteriorate all the times, so maybe some of them can up their game going forward.

His pace is still great and it’s only gonna get better even his line and length are very good too he’s still young on top I’m not saying he will be a great but way better than musa nothing wrong in admitting that India has some better young fast bowlers than us coming through

    Yes .....the list is growing....day by day like their economy ......

    He has become a trundler.
    So dissapointing. Both him and Mavi.
    Unable to hit 90 mph.
    Archer bowling miles quicker.

    He has played 2 matches after 2 years. Mavi after 1 year.

    Nagarkoti clocked 143 plus today.

    He was much quicker a couple of years ago.
    Mavi has lost even more pace by the looks of it. Hasnain and naseem both had similiar injuries.
    I expected him to be quicker than buumrah.

    He hasn't played a match for 2.5 years before the IPL. It will take him time to return to peak speed. Mavi too os returning after 1.5 years.

    Mavi clocked 149ks in 2018.

    in my opinion if you can't bowl consistently above 135 then you shouldn't bowl and probably should quit cricket unless you have the ability to bowl bouncers, slow ball, in swing, out swing, Yorker at will.

    One thing is sure, heís a horrible t20 cricketer at the moment, doesnít bowl as quick as he used to and he currently bats like a number XI. Hope Iím wrong but playing IPL right now is only going to wreck his confidence in other formats too.

    Not impressed by him or Mavi. More hype merchants like our own young fast bowlers.

    He has clocked 146-147 ks in the IPL. So he hasn't slowed.

    He hasn't been helped by a stupid team selection of KKR that packs 6 bowlers in the team because apparently they need to play all big name foreigners.

    As I pointed out a few weeks ago, both Mavi and him have lost their zip. They may get it back but Mavi in particular hasn't got the same action and its a long way back.

    Mavi is playing in IPL after a 9 month injury lay off, Nagerkotti after more 2 years. He will get better as he plays more. Nagerkotti will travel as a reserve pacer to Australia. Needs to gradually move to increased workload.

    Both are only 21. Long way ahead in their careers.

    Even Varun Aaron bowls 90mph what's your point?


    Why is Monday so far from Friday, and Friday so close to Monday?

    They may have done but they don't like the bowlers they were. It may be temporary but particularly in Mavi case, it looks more serious.
