In the last two-three years, one of the main talking points in Indian cricket has been the performance of the pacers. And what has come as the icing on the cake is that they are now leading the show even on home soil.
India, famous for producing world-class batters over the years, now boasts of having one of the most lethal pace attacks in the world. The performance of the Indian fast bowlers across venues in the world has been a revelation, quite naturally drawing high praise from cricketers of both past and present.
In the just-concluded three-Test series against South Africa which India won 3-0, the pacers led the way as the Proteas batsmen had no answer to the bowling attack even in Jasprit Bumrah’s absence.
