He reminds me more of Holding than Garner. One thing we have to keep in mind is, at nineteen Seales' body hasn't filled out yet. So he will get quicker.

Holding started young too and wasn't express in the beginning. But, he maintained a good line and length with lateral movement just like Seales.

Then, when Holding added the extra pace he went from a very good bowler to a great bowler.

Folks, we have a gem and his name is Jayden Seales. I just pray we manage him well and don't over ball him.

Am I exaggerating? I am suggesting a young West Indian quick on debut has the potential to become something special. With all due respect, based on Seales performance today, I don't think I' m exaggerating.

We are struggling to bat 40 overs. I don’t think Seales will have a future if he hang around West Indies cricket

We soon might have to rename him "$eales".

Will say from seeing him at U19 the youth could hold a line and continuously hit his spots. This is something our bowlers have not been able to do consistently for years now. When C Holder is on he does the same thing. Smith also looks to be able to do it. Constant pressure makes it hard for batsmen to get you away.

I see a more A. Roberts in the youth. Just because he attacks all the time. As he gets stronger he will become a force with continued hard work.

In reply to Rascalp I don't see any exaggeration from him. He is simply stating that Searles shows he has all the tools to develop into a world beater as he fills out and becomes a full grown man m by mid twenties age. What's wrong with that? He has shown so far the mental strength (patience) to not try too much and put the ball in nearly the same spot each time - or try to. Other with more experience have failed to be consistent that way Gabriel sprays balls down leg side 25% of the time. Joseph tries too many things when the batsmen simply wait. Holder since new Zealand has been trying to be what he is not an out and out quick.

I watched the replay when I got home and Searles was bowling at the same speeds as the Saffies with his quickest at 137ks, with the exception of Nortje who only hit 140Ks three times with effort balls that got nothing before he stayed at the 135Ks level. The pitch will help the bowlers who don't over-bowl ie. try to bowl every ball at express pace -that lets the ball movement do the trick.

Searles will be fine as his body fills out and develops. I don't want to see him get stress fractures like Lee did at 18 and Taylor did at about 19-20. Not everyone comes back as fast from that. lets just enjoy the young man's efforts so far and not try slight of hand comments to put him down
cool

Seales action looks so familiar, was wracking my brain trying to figure out who else has a very similar action. The commies just pointed out Rabada, and I agree. Releases from a higher position with similar wrist action.
Really good debut so far. A run of 5 to 6 games will provide an insight into consistency, endurance and concentration.

Rabada... yes. And Vanburn Holder. If any of you remember him.

Yeah, remember him. A nice rhythmic run up and slightly bow legged.

When did Holding add the extra pace? he was fast very fast as a school boy which is when he debuted for Jamaica.
By the time most West Indians saw him in FC cricket between '73-75 he was already lightning fast. Wasn't much
added by the time he got to Oz in '75 and England in '76. Holding n Newman were two very, very fast schoolboys
for JA and WI youths

Bro Holding himself tells how at first he couldn't bowl a straight ball.
His action created natural outswing/leg-cutters. Because they used to drop
his catches his Mom encouraged him to learn how to bowl straight and in-swing
Based on what I know of his school days his accuracy came on at 16-17
