    Shaheen's stats may prove that he is better at this stage but we can't say much as of now.
    Khaleel is bowling on pattas, while shaheen is playing on low scoring uae pitches.
    Secondly
    Our U19 guys were able to thrash shaheen so i reserve my statement until shaheen plays outside UAE. As much as i have seen he doesn't move the ball much. He relies on pace variation.

    Both height and body mass. Shaheen looks stronger.

    But disagree on the pace part. Khaleel has shown higher peak pace than Shaheen at the moment. But to be honest i dont know about the average pace comparison of these two.

    Khaleel is another name in the long list of trundlers we have produced, why is he bowling so slow? It is not like he is incapable of bowling 140+, his current style of bowling may pay dividends in SC but not in England where the WC will be played.

    May be Venkatesh Prasad paid a visit to Khaleel and taught him the advantages of bowling slow

    Khaleel has world class facilities available now and diet will not be an issue. There should be no excuses for not bulking up a bit.
    Shaheen looked very frail during the U19 WC last year. But he surely has worked hard in the gym and you can see how his body responded.

    Bro, chill It's just a tactic to increase the number of pages.

    Speak something controversial and escape, the thread will change into Faheem vs Pandya.

    Speaking the truth, both are really good but, we'll see their worth at the world cup.

    At this point it feels like Shaheen is thrown into the deep end and he is coming up aces. Khaleel has been a support bowler and has been doing a decent job. Shaheen is leading at this point

    At this point, Shaheen seems to have greater potential. He is taking bucket loads of wickets on UAE pitches.

    Khaleel is a decent bowler who has potential. Can develop into a very good bowler if nurtured properly.

    I'd like to judge Shaheen once he has bowled in non-sub continent pitches. Need to see if he has the ability to swing which will truly make him a dangerous bowler in ODI and Test cricket. If he offers no swing then like Junaid and Aamir, he will eventually fade.

    There will no be worse conditions for fast bowling than the UAE.

    He has exceptional height (Hasan lacks it), game awareness (Wahab never had), and the variation of the left-arm angle (always an added bonus because it is equally effective from either side of the wicket).

    The kid has followed his predecessors with a great start but it remains to be seen if he can maintain his initial burst.

    Hasan Ali and Trent Boult went at 7 an over today. They bowled on the same pitch.

    I know but if there is one thing I learned then its to take my time in judging players. We've had likes of Umar Akmal, Amir who made one hell of a impact but fell off dramatically - at one point they were potential world class. Hasan and Fakhar going through similar 'phase' too. We haven't had a consistent youngster come through the ranks in over a decade IMO.

    Shaheen just needs to do what he is doing now but for sure look to develop. His PR team seem on their game - hopefully a county contract can be secured.

By the way what's happening to those india u19 bowlers who outbowled Shaheen in world cup?? Looked great mavi and nagarkoti but have since dissapeared.

    Indian selection panel is one of the worst in history at the moment, they are sticking with only seniors, thankfully these young bowlers have IPL to perform and multi-crore salaries to fall back on. The World Cup 2019 team should have been filled with youngsters like Mavi, Nagarkoti and Batsmen like Shaw, Ishan Kishan, Sanju Samson etc.

    Keep in mind the opposition so far as well:

    SSA: Afg, Bang, Ind, NZ, NZ, NZ (6 matches total)

    KA: HK, Afg, Wi, WI, WI, WI, WI (6 matches total)

    This makes SSA's start look even better compared to KA's.

    However it is early days, should reserve judgement until after the world cup. KA may well pull ahead.

    Need to also remember I think it was 5 or 6 dropped catches already off Afridi’s bowling.

    If you analyse the U19 WC game last year, Mavi, Porel and Nagarkotti outbowled Afridi who went for 61 runs in 10 overs. So we hv better bowlers than Afridi in domestics but selectors decided to give Khaleel a go who is clearly an inferior bowler.

    Reason - Well, we know why.

    Shaheen is playing for his national team whereas guys like Porel, Nagarkotti and Mavi are not even in team management's plans thanks to IPL legends like Thakur and Kaul who keep getting selected.

    In my opinion Shaheen is a better bowler at the moment. Also I don't know why Khaleel is bowling at 130-135k range. He used to bowl above 140k in domestic cricket.

    You can’t judge a player by his performance in one match. No doubt the Indian pacers are talented but you can’t say they are better than Shaheen based on one match.

    Even Shaheen will play in PSL...that has nothing to do with the topic we are discussing here. Issue is not premier leagues, even Khaleel played for Delhi Daredevills. The problem is our national selectors are ignorant.
