    And compare how the smaller Shami and Bumrah outbowled Australia's six footers and won the last series in Australia. And both 6 foot five Starc and Hazzlewood averaged over 30 in that series on their own homeground and even the likes of Pant smoked them. And shall I remind you about tall and phaast Shaun Tait and Billy Stanlake? Their height couldn't mask their mediocre skills.
    jamieson looks real good though. skilful bowler. Might be my new favourite from non indian and non south african players.

    This height theory is nonsense. By default most of the bowelrs are tall. Few inches here and there won't make you a super man. Let us break down the averages of taller bowlers like 6'4" below " and 6'5" and above. Let us see who has done well overall among the great players.

    India - 122/5 after 55 overs.

    Tea break.

    NZ are slightly ahead but India aren't out of the game yet. Should be an interesting final session.

    how about over 6 foot vs under?

    slight edge to over 6 foot in non sub continent conditions I presume.

    You won't find many great bowlers under that height. As i said most of the top bowlers are mostly 5'10" above. Mohammad Irfan would have been world beater if that is the case. or even Tuffey, Jacob Oram.

    Chris Tremlett operated ad pretty much exactly Jamiseon's speeds and had some success in Oz.

    Joel Garner (pace fluctuated).

    Peter George (Australian domestic).

    That' a decent list for something as uncommon as a "slow" tall bowler.
    Walsh,Joel and Mcgrath are legends. Tom Moody averages 68 from his five tests in Australia. I wont call it as anything near success. Chris Tremlett has upped his pace pretty much when he had success in Australia. And domestic records doesn't count.
    My point is that low 130s isn't going to help you much in pattas in Australia and certainly NOT in India unless you know how to reverse the SG ball like Zaheer.

    Scrambled thinking while batting in LOIs. Mostly pre-determined shots. When he reacts to the ball he looks better.

    I was giving a list of slow, successful bowlers in Oz. So Moody makes the list.

    And it seems to me your criteria are both self serving mystifyingly illogical... domestics don't count... I'm supposed to find good slow, tall bowlers to succeeded in Oz... but you throw away the 3 most successful examples on the basis that they were to successful??? That's some interesting reasoning there.

    Tremlett did NOT raise his pace in Australia. They are my home series, I watch them all on TV or at the ground. So you've now thrown away the 4 examples- a pretty solid argument imo, for nonsense reasons, especially since Tremlett operated in precisely the speed range you say won't work here...

    Then you throw out Zaheer, a 5'10 (?) swing bowler as the counter example?

    But yes, please show me the part where I said just anyone who is tall will instantly succeed. In fact I spelt it out slowly & carefully that it is one path to success. Of course you need to be skilled too. It's Test cricket mate.

    NZ obviously is a fantastic country to live in but NZ cricket board doesn't have much money/sponsors. Cricket is like a dead sport there. Rugby is #1.

    Yes this is why Indian tour/Australian tours are important for them. But with so many T20 leagues cricketers are not going to be poor anymore.

    they have wealth. they are a rich country. Good facilities. GDP is far higher than all sub continent countries. Better nutrition, diet and standard of living. Naturally they will be competitive. Sub continent teams don't have these advantages barring population.

    India are getting there though in terms of GDP.

    When I meant success, I meant against INTERNATIONAL batsmen. Not against domestic lallus. Else even Vinay Kumar and Dinda are legends. And I gave Zaheer's example as a slow bowler whom I thought was successful in India as he could reverse swing the SG ball at lower speeds. But now I look at his stats in India, it wasn't that great either. I must have been fooled by some of his matches in the later part of his career.
    My whole point is that to bowl well on pattas in Australia and India you need some pace and skills. And now if you bowl slow like Jaimison, your skill level needs to be very high.
    And this whole discussion started as reply to a poster claiming Jaimison is a proof why pace doesnt matter much.

    Exactly. Just read about Yashaswi Jaiswal. Dude had to live in a goddamn tent with no toilet in a cricket-crazy city like Mumbai even after being so talented. I don't think even a D grade cricketer from Newzealand has to go through what he went through.

    Here is Tremlett getting Johnson's wicket in that Ashes at 89.4 mph which is definitely greater than what Jamieson bowled today:

    Unlucky that india didn't get the opportunity to cash in during the evening session. 230 or 240 - allout today and bowling in the next day morning would have put india in a better position.

    But Now India will get bowled out tomorrow morning without scoring much and NZ will cash in the last two sessions.

    Firstly poor team selection.You don't need a spinner in these conditions.Saini can bat too.Even if you do,Jaddu has done much better with both bat and ball recently

    Shaw over Gill is debatable since Gill has been the backup opener and done well in A team in NZ

    Props to select Pant over Saha

    Even the next 4 days weather forecast shows cloudy weather. This will be a rather low-scoring affair. A score of 250 will be decent by Indian team but will take a lot of effort to reach there.

    Considering the difficulty of the surface, not a bad effort. I'm sure NZC went for such a wicket to play to their relative wickets. We all saw what happened to their team when they played on true wickets in Australia.

    It's not such a difficult surface as we played.Shaw,Kohli and Aggarwal all played rash shots.

    With just 3 pacers,I expect NZ to make 300 here

    I think they simply found Jamieson's bounce a little too disconcerting.

    If we didn't have a wicket like this we'd be seeing a boring 600 vs 600 draw. This is the only way to get results here but that gives the team bowling first a huge advantage.

    How do different bowlers get different speeds off the pitch? That is a quality of the pitch alone.

    Yes, Simon Doull or Ian Smith, it was, also said the same. It's always a case in NZ even when India toured previously also.

    Debutant Jamieson rips through India on rain-hit opening day
    NZ v Ind, 1st Test, day 1, report


    Debutant Kyle Jamieson tore through India with a three-wicket burst to headline a rainy start to New Zealandís two-Test series against world No.1 India on Friday, 21 February.

    Making the most of an overcast Wellington morning, Jamieson snuffed out the two biggest threats in the opposition, Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara, in his opening spell, before returning to account for Hanuma Vihari, after Kane Williamson had little hesitation in deciding to field first upon winning the toss.

    Jamiesonís efforts reduced India to 40/3, before Mayank Agarwal and Ajinkya Rahane staged a very brief recovery with a 48-run fourth-wicket stand. By stumps, India were 122/5, with only R Ashwin and the tail to follow.

    While Jamieson did the bulk of the damage, it was Tim Southee who opened the gates, when a ripping outswinger whizzed past Prithvi Shawís outside edge and flattened his off stump.

    It was a classic Southee delivery: full, swinging away, and luring the batsman into the drive, which Shaw did, without moving his feet to cover the swing, and paid the price.

    Jamieson then produced the most decisive blows on the day in back-to-back overs. First, Pujara prodded forward to a fullish delivery, angled into the right-hander, but was taken aback when it straightened and kissed the outside edge before sailing into the hands of wicket-keeper BJ Watling.

    Kohliís dismissal was down as much to the batsmanís own undoing as it was to the bowlerís brilliance. Jamieson, to his credit, pitched the ball around the 10th stump line to the Indian captain, who has a penchant for chasing deliveries that are well outside his reach.

    And while they sometimes produce the most crisp cover drives in world cricket, often times, they bring about his downfall, as in this instance, when Ross Taylor, playing his landmark 100th Test for New Zealand, snaffled a tumbling catch, off the outside edge, at first slip.

    Agarwal and Ajinkya Rahane then kept New Zealand at bay for the next 17 overs. At lunch, India were 79/3, but any hopes of consolidation after the early morning advantage begins to wear down were crushed when Agarwal, having ground it out for 83 balls for his 34 runs, miscued a pull shot against Trent Boult, off the top edge, to long leg, where Jamieson was once again in the thick of the action, snaffling the ball in front of him.

    Vihariís brief stay ended on the first ball after drinks, when Jamieson, returning for his second spell, produced the outside edge to have him caught behind.

    Rishabh Pant, playing his first match on the tour, shelved all his attacking instincts to play well within his body, as he and Rahane got down to blocking out everything New Zealandís bowlers threw at them.

    They did so for 14 overs, before the rain came down at the tea interval and the players stayed inside for the rest of the day.

    Spinner would be effective in giving the bowlers a rest. The wicket will be a road by late day 2 if not 3.

    Although the overhead conditions may keep something there for the bowlers.

    You can't just keep on changing the Fab4 once a week. They were formed on the back of consistent performances in test cricket for atleast 2-3 years.

    Babar still has a long way to go.

    Kane has hardly set the world on fire either. Kohli even out of form has been more proflic than him.

    Last time he was going over 4.5 runs per over. Wasn't effective by any stretch of the imagination. Atleast Ashwin has variations. Jaddu has become an absolute darter who will do nothing.

    When was this? If you are referring to last NZ tour,you must know that he has improved with both bat and ball in last 2 years or so.See his performance in Aus last year.Equal to Ashwin with ball but better with bat whose batting has gone down significantly

    Anyway the main point is why to go with spin at all?Saini can bat and Vihari can bowl the filler overs to rest pacers.

    When you have Umesh why do you need Saini? Umesh is a better bat anyway. Also in good Test match form.

    Tuffey ran through us as well. First day nightmare in NZ. But i have to say apart from two stupid shots from Kohli and Agarwal India didn't do that terrible in terms of application. Pujara was really rock solid until he got a peach. Just one of those situation where you are going to 2 or 3 wicket taking balls every over. As a bowler you don't have to do too much.

    Yes Jadeja could have been probably a decent option, especially considering that NZ only has 2 lefties in the top 7 against while 5 right handers. Ashwin is good against lefties but there arent many in NZ lineup.
