    Avesh Khan vs Shaheen Shah Afridi

    Both look international material, but Avesh looks much more lethal.

    Yes, he's much elder(4 yrs) than Shaheen, but still he looks like a real deal.

    I can already see Avesh being a good test bowler as well.

    Exciting times ahead for us.

    Anyways, let's see as to how these 2 do for their country.

    Atm

    Avesh > Shaheen

    Bhaiyon Hamera paas bhi bowler hai. PACE BOWLER.

    Avesh is not even in the pecking order. Also, looks one dimensional with pace and length. I like the other kid Mavi better. Right now SHaheen is better than both. I watched him bowl in PSL. He has much better physical characteristics and variety.

    Not sure 2-36 in a 150 score is reason to put up a comparison thread

    What happened did Avesh Khan got a 5fer in Pyjama League? No matter how many fast bowlers we have we are still going to field trundlers like thakur, unadkat, sran, mohit. Don't waste your time. It's like saying we have the gun but we don't know how to fire because we are good at horse riding(batting).

    Not based on 5fer. Neither of the 2 have done anything notable.

    Comparison is based on potential, and how they do in the future.

    Today Avesh hurried the likes of Finch, Rahul and forced them into false shots.

    Avesh needs to be seen in a few more matches. But he is definitely quicker than Shaheen. Regarding skills, it needs to be seen. So far, Avesh seems like a short of a length bowler with good pace and bounce. Pretty much a replica of Plunkett I felt.

    Lets see how he does in the next few games. But an impressive 1st match for him this year. Miles better than Unadkat, Siraj etc.

    When was the last time you saw a talented under 19 guy making a debut for India?

    Just like Sachin, Yuvi, Irfan, Kohli, Kaif did?

    Even though Shaheen got a phainty in the Under 19 World Cup final. I think because of the fast bowling culture in Pakistan he is going to win this race against Nagarkotti, Mavi etc. Same is true for young indian batsman. They have a better chance of succeeding when compare to young pakistani batsman.

    Too early at this stage to have a versus thread. Both can go on to be excellent cricketers or crash and burn, or one may succeed while the other falters. At the moment it's like shooting in the dark and hoping for the best.

    However, the difference is Shaheen is four years younger and already in and around the Pakistani LOI setup. He has guys like Amir, Hasan, Junaid and Shinwari for company. Hard to assemble a better "coaching staff" than that. He will play under their tutelage for a while getting a game here or there until he is ready to be a regular part of the first eleven.


    Avesh on the other hand has played his first IPL game just now (or maybe he has played before idk I saw the thread was made today so I assumed he debuted today and performed). It remains to be seen when Avesh is picked for the national side to further hone his skills. If he remains in the IPL/domestic circuit he will not really improve.

    What happened to Babar vs Unmukt?
    Sanju vs Hussain?
    Aslam vs Sarfaraz Khan?
    The recent trends have shown that India have wasted so many U19 talents

    No sorry.

    The whole "setup, under XYZ's tutelage" etc only matters when we are talking about Bharat's team culture, not ours. Just ask Root!

    All of them were batsmen which we have in plenty.Avesh is a phaast bowler who can hit 90mph.Massive difference.

    Bumrah and Bhuvi improved a lot while playing in IPL.Most of the IPL teams have international bowlers, good trainers and support staff.So there are plenty of opportunities to improve.

    Looks like you are still in the 90's. Btw, the same can be said about most fast bowlers. Its silly to expect any fast bowler to be bowling at 90mph throughout. Ofcourse the likes of Shoaib and Lee were exceptions.

    Afridi has a better FC average than Avesh, in fact a brilliant average of 17. He bowled a special spell in PSL, took a 5-fer in a T20 game, which is a big deal for any youngster at his age. Bowled an economical spell on his International debut against WI. Had bowled a special spell in the U19 WC against Ireland. Some few special ingredients, hence hyped.

    SSA has played 2 FC matches. Thats nothing.

    SSA bowled to Indian U19 batsman. He was good but not exceptional as you are claiming to be.

    Not SSA's fault, some of the Indian under 19 batsman were exceptionally great at this level and potential to become great international level batsmen, particularly Shaw, what a talent.

    I think you are confusing Avesh with Nagorkoti. Havent heard about both of them since quite a while.

    Anyway, Shaheen is miles ahead.

    Don’t be jealous bro. He was the most defficult to pace on that day as well. He had a good wc for a reason. If you are denying the potential of this kid then I will just call it ignorance.

    He went for 60 plus in 10 overs and was not that great. The other pacer who was bowling quick was causing all the trouble.

    Not to mention, SSA had an early chance of his also dropped within the first ten overs.

    That SF was a carbon copy of the WC 11'.

    It was a carbon copy because...

    1) IND got off to a great start. In the U19 WC, they were 150 odd for 3 wickets down.

    2) IND batted first and with fire in the first half while failing to accelerate and settled at the end with a below-par score, below 300. (Given their start).

    3) Pakistani fielders dropped the main scorer multiple times (Tendulkar dropped five times and Gill with a drop and no-ball wicket).

    4) Pakistani batsmen failed to handle the pressure and collapsed and in the U19 WC, it happened a lot faster than expected.

    SSA had an off day but that’s not to say the Indian batsmen, particularly Gill got lucky. In fact, they played extremely well.

    Of course.

    The scoreboard does not keep track of whether or not the batsman was dropped or caught off a no-ball.

    But it helps in deciding the quality of the innings.

    A ďno-ball wicketĒ means he was OUT but it was an overstep by the bowler. Therefore, it does not count.

    However, I understand the terminology may have sounded confusing.

    Strange comparison. Avesh is yet to play for India and Shaheen has already played for Pakistan. Avesh has good potential, so do Nagarkoti and Mavi but unless they play for the national side, there should not be any comparisons.

    Afridi much ahead at this moment as international wickets against a team like Australia counts better than any domestic league. Avesh might be faster than him but his length is pretty short and copped a lot punishment in IPL due to that. Also I dont think his domestic stats are anything great.But he is only 21 and was already hitting 149 clicks in IPL. So pace and age is on his side, need to master some skills

    Shaheen hits around 145KPH at the age of 18. Even the commies mentioned that in the last match. I dont where this Avesh is faster theory comes from.

    I don't know a lot about Khan but I think it's an unfair compairson as 1 is playing international cricket and the other isn't. We can only guess how Khan will do at international level. Just because Shaheen performed against Australia doesn't guarantee he will be successful at international level.

    But surely, as things stand, Shaheen seems to be on a higher trajectory.

    I am not talking about potential, but achievement to date. Khan might or might not achieve more, but as of now, Shaheen needs to get benefit of doubt.

    Having said that, why do we need to compare two kids? This comparison was made when neither of them had played international cricket, or even the same tournament. If both of them had played the IPL or PSL, then there was an argument. A proper comparison can only made after 1 year of regular international cricket. Otherwise, its only based on pace, ability to swing, the bowling action and stats of domestic competition (which cant be compared as they both play in different competitions).

    Did he hit 149 kph yet? Avesh has hit that speed in IPL and bowled many deliveries north of 145 kph.So unless Afridi breaks that speed, Avesh will remain faster.End of story.

    What speed was Avesh bowling when he was 18? Looking at his u19 speeds, it's not even a competition.

    U19 speeds are not necessarily the point where you compare fast bowlers. Fast bowlers can get stronger up to 23-24 and will be at their fastest around 28, when a person reaches physical peak.

    I read somewhere Shoaib gained that extra 5 mph after 18.

    That's exactly the point.

    Following the general trend Shaheen should get faster than what he is bowling at the moment. He is already reaching speeds of 145 kph. So you can't directly compare the speeds of Avesh (at 21) and Shaheen (at 18). That is utter nonsense.

    Lo.Extrapolation doesn't work in sports, dear friend. Where is the U 19 hero Anwar Ali now? How fast was Hassan Ali bowling in England Test series? Why did Amir slowed down from his pre-ban days? Afridi will be called faster than Avesh when he actually bowls faster than him.End of story.

    Why can't we produce a bowler of Shaheen Shah Afridi's caliber?

    Sick of these Unadkat, Sran, Thakur, Kaur, Chahar, Shankar.

    We've played so many youngsters and not a single bowler looks to be of Shaheen level.

    Whereas Pakistan gave a cap to one and he's already above all.

    Population of 125+ cr and this😢

    I am not even counting their main bowlers like Amir, Hassan, Junaid or their second level like Usman and Raees.

    Looking at what our Trundlers are have to offer off lateit looks as if Shaheen has already won a WC.

    Coming to the performance.

    Match 1 against AUS, top wicket taker.(FINCH, MAXWELL and SHORT)
    Match 2 against AUS, the most economical bowler, when FINCH and SHORT was going berserk.
