    World Fast bowling stocks on the rise?

    Are we seeing a 90's type revival.Currently in the Under 30 category we have.

    Aus-Mitch,Siddle & Hilfy

    Eng- Broad, Anderson

    India- Ishant, Sreesanth, RP

    NZL-Southee

    Sl Dhamika Prasad, Malinga, Kulasekara

    Pak-Asif,Gul, Aamir

    SA-Steyn, Parnell, Morkel

    Wi-Edward, Taylor.

    Currently there are 19 under 30 guys who have shown performance or potential and then you add some established above 30 performers like Zaheer, Flintoff, Lee, Clarke,Akhtar and Nitini so it all add up to atleast 25-30 good quality seam bowlers.

    Now I have doubts we are going to see many Ambrose, Donlad, Mcgrath,Wasim out of them but its till something to be excited about

    The bowler I see becoming an all-time great out of that list is Wayne Parnell. Bowlers like Steyn and Johnson will touch that status but won't be able to maintain it as long as what most would call the very best.

    Siddle has a good shout too.

    Asif if returns and keeps his head screwed the right way can. Parnell, Ishant and Aamir are 3 who could really develop but are still too young to make a call.

    Asif has the most potential out of the lot IMO. Was so impressed when I saw him bowl against England.

    Is Aamir actually 17, because if he is, that is seriously impressive. Reckon he'd get 10fers week in week out if he played in our u17s league.

    I think Aamir is genuine 17 PCB has become quite stringent in this regard for the last 3-4 years.

    None of these are a patch on Atul Sharma!

    What are the chances of Mohammad Asif making a return? His seam movement is second to none.

    Asif, Steyn, Johnson & Siddle are the ones most likely to reach the all-time great status ATS.

    yes we do see to have some decent young bowlers appearing. But nothing (atm anyway) that could match the likes of Ambrose / Walsh / McGrath / Akram / Donald etc.
