In past, the Indian cricket team has delivered great batsmen like Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, and Kapil Dev but hardly given a pure fast bowler. However, now the times have changed. Under the captaincy of Virat Kohli, the bowling department has got the admiration from worldwide.
Evidently, Jasprit Bumrah has come out as one of the best fast bowlers of India. He is mentioned as the dangerous bowler in the cricket world. Also, Navdeep Saini is the rising star for India. Saini has the ability to constantly bowl at the speed of 140 kmph.
Thus, in today’s world, there is a big shift in Team India’s bowling department. The pacers are getting the reward for delivering in crunch situations of the game. While some talented bowlers are quick and bowl consistently at the speed of 150 kmph.
In this article, we will discuss five players who can clock over 150 kmph but till now haven’t featured in the Indian team.
Five bowlers who can cross 150-mark, and are yet to feature in Team India:
5. Avesh Khan:
A tall and lanky pacer can constantly bowl at the speed of 145 kmph. He first got the eye during the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup in 2016. In the mega event, he picked 12 wickets to steal the limelight.
The 23-year-old finished as the highest wicket-taker for Madhya Pradesh in the last Ranji season, with 35 dismissals in seven matches. Like the modern-day players, he can swing both ways and has different variations under his sleeves.
The MP player had a break in his career after he surfaced with an injury. But after his comeback, he has developed to bowl at 150 kmph regularly.
Meanwhile, Avesh Khan has regularly featured in India A team. Currently, he is representing India A on their tour of New Zealand.
So, the speedster is surely in the eyes of national selectors.
