    Chennai Super Kings
    The team is back after 2 years and is all set to roar once again. They have opted for some great names fast bowlers in their squad. Here they are:

    Shane Watson, Shardul Thakur, Lungi Ngidi, Mark Wood, Deepak Chahar

    Delhi Daredevils


    Delhi is looking strong on the paper this season! The inclusion of Gautam Gambhir is another advantage for them. Let’s have a look at their pace-attack:

    Chris Morris, Kagiso Rabada, Mohammad Shami, Trent Boult, Daniel Christian

    Kings XI Punjab
    KXIP did a great shopping in this IPL Auction, thanks to Preity Zinta. They have bought some superb players in the form of Ravichandran Ashwin, KL Rahul, Aaron Finch and the Sixer King Yuvraj Singh. Let’s have a look at their fast bowlers:

    Andrew Tye, Marcus Stoinis, Mohit Sharma, Barinder Singh Sran, Ankit Singh Rajpoot

    Kolkata Knight Riders
    KKR’s biggest problem is to whom they should make their captain! They have a decent side but are desperately working on the captaincy issue. Check out their speed stars for this season:

    Andre Russell, Mitchell Starc, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Mitchell Johnson, Shivam Mavi

    Mumbai Indians
    Can you imagine Mumbai Indians without Lasith Malinga? No! But this time they went for some of the best T20 bowlers in their squad. Have a glance:

    Jasprit Bumrah, Pat Cummins, Ben Cutting, Mustafizur Rahman, Jason Behrendorff

    Rajasthan Royals
    Just like CSK, they are also making a comeback after 2 years. IPL Auctions gave them some of the quality fast bowlers to their side. Have a look:

    Jaydev Unadkat, Ben Stokes, Jofra Archer, Dhawal Kulkarni, Ben Laughlin

    Royal Challengers Bangalore
    From season one, they have been the best team on papers, still couldn’t win the trophy once. Royal Challengers Bangalore would be under a huge pressure of winning the title this time. They have some quality fast bowlers in the form of:

    Chris Woakes, Umesh Yadav, Mohammad Siraj, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Tim Southee

    Sunrisers Hyderabad
    2016 Champions Sunrisers Hyderabad would be looking to conquer this time also. They have retained their best bowler Rashid Khan and are also look solid on papers. Let’s see some of their fast bowlers:

    Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Carlos Brathwaite, Chris Jorden, Basil Thampi, Syed Khaleel Ahmed

    Pandya is usually between 135-142 range. His effort ball will be around 144 from what I have seen. But its a rarity. His average is around 137k's.

    I think he acknowledged that they are Indian national team players. Talking more about up and coming talent in domestics which many Indian posters was saying are bowling at 145+ at ranji.

    The likes of Avesh Khan, Nagarkoti or Mavi or Khaleel may not get a chance again or they will have to wait until legendary bowlers like Vinay/Dinda get injured.

    The fascination with worthless trundlers is puzzling. Everyone knows that Vinay and Dinda will get smashed. But IPL still love them.

    I sometimes feel IP teams receive instructions from BCCI to play terrible trundelrs so that high scores are achieved and that is what people will love to see.

    Total stupidity to be holding back youngsters to play trundlers in IPL it has benefited bumrah/bhuvi and they have improved their death bowling 10 fold reason being they are so good in international loi death overs. Same would be true if bcci pushed teams to invest in more younger bowlers who are not trundlers at ranji/domestic level.

    What's up with the obsession with pace? I would rather have a 125 kmph bowler like McGrath instead of 150 kmph phast bowler like Wahab who is getting smashed to all parts of the ground whenever i see him bowl.

    Modern era of flat slow tracks fast bowlers make a difference have you not seen the ashes recently england had a few125kph trundlers bowling wicket to wicket were they effective?
    Fast bowling is very important to the game in modern era.

    Damnnn.

    All this tells me is that Billy Stanlake is PHAAAST!!!

    We've had a few fast bowlers here and there for the past 5-6 years but we haven't really had a proper phaaast bowler since the days of Akhtar, Lee and Tait!!

    Mcgraths pace is grossly understated

    He was bowling in mid 130s and over for most of his career

    Umesh is proper fast bowler but Shami isn't a consistent one.

    Bowling 2 or 3 145kph deliveries in a day isn't that intimidating esp if it's wayward.

    not entirely agree. Smart bowlers are needed not fast bowlers. Bowling fast is one of the variation they can add. Currently india is doing good in all three format because the bowlers are not the fastest but quit smart and bowling according to plan.

    this is why we should not compare different era bowlers. Things changed and some things evolve. Currently it is batsman friendly because public wants to see more runs on board.

    That’s because some of the fast bowling stars injured or not in the mood to play cricket now.

    Starc, Cummins and Rabada are as good as any you mentioned in effectiveness. May not be as fast.

    As and When KKR gets its senses back, Nagarkoti and Mavi will play. Nagarkoti will likely be 145 plus and Mavi 140 plus.

    Khaleel will be in 140-145 range. So will be KM Asif and Ankit Rajpoot. Khejroliya has already demonstrated that he can bowl 140 plus.

    His 150 kph balls would be smacked by Indian batsmen all over,can't wait for him to drafted back to the team to get another phainty.

    Not sure if he will ever play international cricket. That’s the effect of phainty he got against kohli and co. We too have fast bowler like Wahab. He is not even picked for this IPL. He will be playing county cricket though.

    Because the youngsters probably won't know how to bowl cutters, BCCI should make sure they take care of pacers just like they paid Shami for missing IPL.

    I can see only Hyderabad and Punjab playing fast bowlers because of their somewhat bowling friendly home pitches.

    Waiting for Khaleel Ahmed, Basil Thampi, KM Asif, Navdeep Saini, Avesh Khan, Mavi and Nagarkoti to get a chance.

    But can't fault the franchises entirely. Some 135kph bowlers might be skillful like Chahar who can swing early on. Even Siddharth Kaul has done well. But Vinay Kumar's selection is definitely a mystery.

    Many of these pacers are spray guns. But I am cautiously optimistic about the bowling of Nagarkoti and Mavi. At least they will improve and gain experience bowling against top batsmen.

    As bitter as I may sound in my usual posts, I do believe India has better quicks than Pakistan today. Shocking but true.

    Pakistan has Wahab and Sami who bowl faster than any Indian, but they are not worth international cricket. Maybe only Shinwari can approach 145. Amir too, but he's lazier than Trump with a thesaurus.

    India has Khaleel, Siraj, Thampi, Varum Aron Khejrolia, who all are wayward but 145. Plus Bumrah, Shami and Bumrah who bowl 140+ with swing and direction.

    Dude I'm 41 and beyond the age to make such efforts of posting links.

    All I said was that the Median age of 140+ bowlers is higher in IPL than PSL.

    Now don't ask me to explain how Median mode and mean differ. God bless.

    You don't seem to have the patience to follow cricket, and by following, I mean at least 3000 hours of it. That's about 400 tests at bare minimum, usually a decade.

    Or it could be that you're a new convert to Cricket's irresistible charms, in which case let me apologize and say, keep watching. Perhaps someday your love for the sport will overcome your hatred for its slowness.

    Either way, you strike me as someone around 20, and therefore almost my son's age, which makes me want to raise my glass of beer and say, welcome to the club! Let's enjoy this beautiful game.

    Your obsession with putting down anything and everything Indian is just laughable. At least spare these 20 year old kids.

    1. If you had followed the Deodhar Trophy, you would have known that even Umesh Yadav was searing in but 'hovering' around 130s on the speed guns in Deodhar Trophy.

    2. Zaheer Khan recently said that Nagarkoti and Khaleel are the two fastest young bowlers in India :

    3. He clocked 144 kph in biomechanical tests in Australia where he had gone for an exchange program last year. Also, he consistently bowled above 140 in the domestic T20 trophy, the fastest ball being 148 kph.

    Credit to India, there's definitely more pace coming out from their ranks. Pakistan only has itself to blame with the wickets they're preparing which are not receptive for fast bowling but for line and length 120 - 130k trundling green top bullies.

    Need to go back to the 90s and 2000s with the abundance of flatter wickets and thus 140+ bowlers who also had the skills to swing the ball conventionally with the new ball and then reverse the older ball.

    If Najam Sethi is the saint that he is made out to be on PP then why is he not addressing this?

    KKR is eliminating it's excess load in the initial games. Later on no players can complain that they weren't given a chance.

    Firstly Sethi isn't a saint (by any stretch of imagination) but I wouldn't necessarily put the blame on him because by design he isn't a cricket nut/follower so most probably he'd have a panel of personnel (this is what I would do if I would be in his position) to advise him on what might be needed next to enhance domestic cricket.

    Now these are the people that need to be held accoutable (along with Sethi to some degree) on why there isn't a single effort made to make domestic cricket more competitive? The problem lies that these people could have vested interets with how things are in our domestics and hence we see little to no progress at all.

    Please bear in mind that this is just a theory.....

    Yeah, He is almost 25 and just made his debut in List A and T20 cricket. Reminds me a bit of Ravi Rampaul with his action. Kerala should have played him sooner especially after Jeff Thomson took note of him in 2016 (http://www.thehindu.com/todays-paper...le14983222.ece) . Also like Rajasthan, Kerala has a problem of plenty and he may not get regular chances. So, we will have to see how he develops.

    I remember seeing Khaleel Ahmed bowl a few deliveries around 147k and 148k just a few months ago. He bowls 140+ consistently. It's a shame he probably won't even get a game this IPL 'cause he's in SRH and they have a very strong bowling lineup.

    Then there's Navdeep Saini who often hits 145k even in 4-day matches but he wasn't picked by any team. Kulwant Khejroliya is at least 10k slower on average than him in Ranji matches.

    Even Mavi bowled a few deliveries at 145 kph in the recently concluded u-19 World Cup.

    Guys like Thakur, Siraj, etc. are also capable of hitting 145+ on occasion but they're usually around the 135-140k mark. I remember seeing KM Asif hit 145k on a few occasions in a domestic match. He hasn't played a lot though, so the sample size is small.

    And besides these, there's Ankit Rajpoot, Nathu Singh, etc. who can bowl genuinely quick. Don't know if Nathu Singh was picked by any team though. I've heard Aniket Choudhary and Basil Thampi are pretty quick as well, but I've never seen them bowl so don't know their speeds.

    Oh, my bad. I was excited to watch our domestic level genuinely quick seamers play this IPL but I was disappointed to not see even one of them get a game. It's not fun watching guys like Unadkat, Dhawal, Vinay Kumar, etc. bowl their 130 kph pies.
