10-for for Munaf Patel


England just got bundled up for 158 in the second innings, and a humiliating loss, to a second XI side within three days on a pitch more green than brown, is on the cards. A very promising fast-bowling performance from MM Patel helped set up this victory. I suppose VRV Singh must’ve done something really well to be picked ahead of Patel (not that VRV’s likely to play in the first Test). What’s amazing is that of his ten scalps, seven were bowled! Boy, I’d love to get some footage of his wickets.  Does anybody know how fast he bowls?

    He used to bowl fast but i think he has reduced his pace for accuracy. I remember he broke finger of my friend Jaydev about 3-4 years ago and he described him as the fastest bowler he had played in Ranji. I think he is bowling high 130’s but he has got a real good height so he might be able to extract some bounce.
