Gone are those days when the Indian National Cricket Team had the problems with their bowling attack, especially in the Test format of the game. However, everything changed for Indian cricket at present with the emergence of quality fast bowlers. The Indian bowling department got the latest supporter in the name of Dale Steyn, who believes the Indian attack is the best at the moment in Test cricket.
The major highlight of the modern-day Indian National Cricket Team is all about their fast-bowling department. They have got the lethal fast bowlers, who can deliver the goods across the formats with ease, irrespective of the conditions.
The Indian pace battery, which consists of Jasprit Bumrah, Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Umesh Yadav have been performing exceptionally well in the last two years.
Recent stats say that the current strike-rate of the Indian fast bowlers is the best in International Cricket for the last 67 years. It shows the impact of the fast bowlers for the Virat Kohli-led side, who are staying on top of the ICC Charts for a while now. As a unit, they average 15.16, and this is the best for any team in any calendar year in the last 67 years.
