“As a collection of fast bowlers, I think this is the best fast bowling attack we have had. We have got great fast bowlers like Kapil Dev, Javagal Srinath, Zaheer Khan.”

With this Dravid said

“But as a group and in fact even outside the main group, the likes of Navdeep Saini, Siraj, Shardul Thakur have been doing well at the A-team level. What’s different is that you don’t have to worry about which three bowlers you will put in the park. They are all doing well,”

Talking about the quality of all bowlers, Dravid said

“India has developed depth in fast bowling and they are all peaking right now. Also, they are all different. Bumrah with his angle, Ishant has height, Shami is skiddy and swings the ball more, Umesh is slingy so they are all unique in their own way,”

Cricket has been stalled since March due to coronavirus. In such a situation, when the cricket is restored, the ICC has issued new guidelines for it, which also prohibits the use of saliva on the ball. With this new ICC rule, the fast bowlers will face problems.
