    Worst Pace trio ever??

    Do you think the present Pakistani pace attack of M Sami, A Razzak, and R Naveed is the worst of all time???


    I think they are the poorest pacers ever , they complement each other by bowling poor balls.


    On top i've heard smewhere that Rana Naveed happens to be a legend in Pakistan, well no disrespect to the great guy but the way Veeru is playing, Rana will lose the remaing hair on his head very fast!

    Are you kidding? There are dozens of worse pace trios than them, regardless of how badly they might be bowling in this game. Hell, Bangladesh, Zimbabwe and the West Indies all have worse attacks right now, and New Zealand probably do as well. At least Rana and Sami have shown they can bowl well at times in the past.

    Haha, what makes you say that? I've got nothing against the New Zealand side, I just don't think their test bowling lineup at the moment is that strong. Do you disagree?

    You could also look at some of the "attacks" put out by the team of the originator of this thread.

    The Windies in recent years have put some pretty ****house attacks on the park. New Zealand have been average but theyre always been someone to bolster them - i.e. Cairns or Bond.

    Frankly I'd rather have the English fast bowlers in Hoggard, Harmison, Flintoff and Jones/Anderson rather than our bowlers in Pathan, Balaji, Zaheer, Nehra or whoever.

    As far as Kumble and Habhajan go, I'm glad they're Indian!

    But England possess the better fast bowlers, thats for sure.

    When the Windies have pace and go all guns blazing, they can trouble even the best batting sides. As for NZ, they're only medium-pace, and four of them in a pack would have batsmen lining up to face them, but with Bond and Cairns, they have been a lot stronger and their new generation of pacers is interesting.
