    That is good I guess, it'll make the batsmen work hard for runs and test their quality rather than the flat roads where the points are decided on the first innings lead.
    Is this your homework Larry?

    Rubbish,

    Both the teams were happy about the wicket. Then why is there so much noise made about it.

    It was turning from day 1 even in the previous game where Railways won against Baroda.
    Group B: Baroda v Railways at Vadodara, Nov 14-17, 2013 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo
    The difference was that Railways planned well and were very patient in their approach.

    The reverse will be true for the bowlers. I'm not saying flat tracks are good, but a mix would be nice.

    We want all possibilities. Tracks that turn square. Strips that seam on all days. Flat decks that make bowlers work hard for their wickets- the slow-and-low kind as well as the bouncy ones. Pitches whose character change over the game. That way, every player gets both chances as well as challenges, across the season.

    How so? He bowled a bit short in the ODIs against West Indies and then overcompensated with half volleys some times.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Yeah, I suspected I was unclear. I meant is he improved from his bowling in the ODIs and in what ways?

    Nothing spectacular, just hitting good areas and getting movement off the seam. Kaul was the only one who looked like he could cope with the movement the quicks were getting. Didn't watch the lower order recovery.

    I think just a minor adjustment to his length will turn him into a successful international bowler. That being said, I thought the same about Vinay Kumar.

    He's just not quick enough I think. On decks without much assistance he'll be practically useless.

    It's not like he has great control over his seam movement or something that can compensate for the lack of pace either.

    He was around 130-135kph in ODI cricket. He was more 135+ in IPL (due to shorter spells obviously) and that is the pace at which the success will come. He doesn't need to put on much pace to be much more successful but definitely some, imo.

    Also because this was the televised match.

    Yadav's had a disappointing return since his injury unfortunately. Has anyone here watched him bowl this season?

    I'm sure people on ICF had seen him bowl and said the pace is fine but he is a bit all over the place. He was poor in the Challenger Trophy earlier in the season too. Seems seriously out of form, probably best to keep him away from the starting XI in South Africa if he is in such bad form.
