^^ Yet he can't find a regular place in the U/19 team. See, height is not everything.

Do you still remember Shafaq Al Zabir?

Yes but I don't want to watch a guy 5'8" trundling in as a fast bowler. I know we won't have guys who are 6'4" but let's at least get guys who are 6'. Fizz should be the shortest we allow on the team as a seamer unless Malcom Marshall randomly pops up at BKSP.

^^ If Sri Lankan selectors had the same mentality as yours, Kulasekara would never get the chance to rise to the top of ICC ODI ranking. Thank God, most people are not as narrow sighted as you are.

McInnes and Pont both focused too much on biomechanics, and tried to make fast bowlers out of guys like Shafaq, Manik, Atul Sharma, etc. Their failed trials showed fast bowling is much more than physique or height.

We have to work with what we have. Unlike West Indies, there is not too many 6+ feet pacers in our cricket arena. We don't need ATGs, we need pacers who will help us win more matches. We should follow Sri Lanka's example and develop pacers who will be effective in our conditions (where bounce is not a big factor anyway).

I dont ever recall Kulasekera being ranked #1 and I just looked his average up...its 33+ which is nothing extraordinary. Regardless the number of wins he delivered with the ball could probably be counted on the fingers of a single hand.

No matter how effective he might be, having a Sujon type 5-4 baitta open the bowling with 75 mph deliveries is not the kind of brand we should aim to advertise. I'm not arguing that we should have a Shoaib or Waqar...but at the same ti e if the Pakistanis could do it, why not us one day?

Its like opening the batting with two guys with strike rates of under 50 and expecting to win ODIs or T20s. You dont have high strike rate batsmen? Fine, start looking. First 10 guys didnt pan out, go to eleventh and the twelfth.

Taskin didn't pan out. Fine. Go to Ebadat and Mishu. If they are also busts, find Ehadat and Tishu. So and so forth.
