Lara compares current Indian bowling attack with past West Indian bowling attack
Former West Indian player Brian Lara compared the current Indian bowling attack with the former bowling attack of West Indies which is regarded as greatest of all time.
The current Indian bowling attack is receiving praise from everyone around the game. Specially Indian fast bowlers are doing a great job for the team in all three formats of the game.
Indian cricket team struggled with the bowling department for some years, especially during MS Dhoni’s captaincy period. Now it’s completely opposite in the team as Indian fast bowlers are dominating in all their recent tours as well as in-home.
Former West Indian skipper Brian Lara is the latest addition in the list of praise for the Indian bowling attack. Brian Lara credited that he saw the old Caribbean bowling attack in the present Indian bowlers.
“Unbelievable. I saw them in the West Indies. When you look at the quality- (Jasprit) Bumrah, (Mohammed) Shami, (Umesh) Yadav, all these guys, and the guys on the sidelines, like Bhuvi (Bhuvneshwar Kumar) are unbelievable,” Brian Lara told reporters in Mumbai.
“It reminds me a little bit of the (pace bowling) strength that the West Indies had in the 80s and 90s. The reserve strength is very important in assessing a team’s ability. It means that your attack has quality,” Lara added.
The former West Indian left-handed batsman will be seen with the bat again in the Road Safety World Series which is going to be played in India next year, along with the greats like Sachin Tendulkar, Muttiah Muralitharan.
