India currently boasts of a strong bowling attack comprising of an impressive battery of fast bowlers, led by Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami and Ishant Sharma. The team has risen to the pinnacle of Test rankings credits to the pace attack that hasn’t been as strong as it is now the reason why the team has had an outstanding run in the longest form of the game.
The three spearheads along with Umesh Yadav and Bhuvneshwar Kumar continued their dominance over the batsmen for quite a while now and received immense praise from cricketing heads from all over the world. The latest addition to this list is the former England spinner, Graeme Swann who heaped them with praise for their incredible performances.
Now a popular television commentator, Swann, watched the Indian bowling attack in action during their tour of West Indies in September last year. Talking to Sony ten’s chat show ‘Pit stop’, Graeme Swann rated the Indian bowling attack as the one which has the ability to bowl out any side cheaply.
“I thought it was incredible and I said at the time, this Indian team right now would bowl out any team in the world cheaply with this bowling attack. The way they’re bowling right now, and I stand by that it’s incredible,” Swann stated.
Jasprit Bumrah was incredible: Graeme Swann
He skipped the Ashes series (as commentator) as the Men in blue toured West Indies to play their first series as part of the World Test Championship. Throughout the series led by Jasprit Bumrah who was in mesmerizing form, the pacers picked up a colossal 33 wickets out of 40 and played a mammoth role in the 2-0 win against the West Indies.
“England were playing the Ashes, they wouldn’t have watched it. We were there and that was an Indian team, an Indian bowling attack in unbelievable form. Jasprit Bumrah was in incredible form in that series,” Swann added.
As termed by Mohammed Shami recently, Team India may have the best pace attack in the history of Test cricket brushing aside the frightening West Indies pacers of the 1970s and 80s. India will play their next Test series against the Aussies in November after a possible stint of Indian Premier League in UAE.
