Vimes tells it how it is:
Re Verma - will be interesting if he turns into a decent pace bowler, considering how so many people say you either have it or you don't, you can't develop more speed.
McClenaghan does seem to have the faith of the CD guys so I'd guess that KNB will drop out and Bracewell will get promoted one spot.
Or they might just stick with the same team.
On Verma: I'm surprised people say you can't develop more pace. Mitchell McClenaghan went from medium pace to genuine quick, Ryan Harris and Mitchell Johnson are some Australian examples of gaining speed.
In other news, ND are 4/1. Michael Parlane goes lbw to McCone for 4.
I've heard people say you are either born with the ability to bowl fast or your not, and that hitting the 130's is achievable but anything 140 and above, then you have the gift. Also, it's very difficult to expect a player to get that much faster after around 21-22 years of age.
Lastly, hitting 145's at 18-19 is not that common.
