    Best Bowling Attack - Tests

    They all seem pretty even for me, so I want CW to rate them.

    (Not counting injuries so include your Steyns, Edwards, Taylors and Bonds)

    A fully fit Australia I say.

    SA, Pak and England are all pretty close. NZL in the first test at Dunedin was as good as any attack can be especially considering O'Brien brilliant form of late however with him retiring and Bond's injury woes that would peg them back a bit. Indian seamers are underrated in swinging conditions I feel though the full impact of Kumble's retirement is still to be seen.

    Roach,Taylor,Edwards sounds tasty too

    Without O'Brien I think NZ will fall away from the top tier even with Bond in the attack. West Indies with all their fast men will be one to watch in years to come.

    I think its all very interesting atm.

    Aamre,Parnell,Morkel,Roach,Ishant,Southee all look good prospect but they are all umproven currently.Next couple of years will be interesting.

    Aus and SAF are good. But put them on a turner, and that attack is docile. Pakistan potentially has the best all ound bowling attack. With Aamer, Asif, Gul, Rana, Ajmal, Kaneria and Afridi to pick from. That attack can prosper on any surface. So my vote is on Pakistan.
    Supporting players: Dinesh Chandimal, Roshen Silva, Kusal Janith, Nuwan Pradeep, Kasun Rajitha, Lahiru Kumara, Akila Dhananjaya, Dhananjaya de Silva

    Oh I did not see there are three votes. I would put SAF and AUS as well. But if everything goes well and bowlers manage to be injury free, SL will be up there soon with Thushara, Malinga, Prasad, Fernando, Kulasekara, Welagedara, Mathews, Herath and Mendis to pick from.

    Afridi has retired from Tests.

    An attack of Johnson, Bollinger, McKay and Hauritz shouldn't be in the top 3 in the world.

    Still Ajmal and Kaneria will walk in to any non-subcontinental side.

    Tough. Not too many attacks I truly rate as top quality at the moment, really. Pakistan don't have a fifth bowler and Aamer hasn't actually done anything yet, while South Africa are having problems finding their second and third seamers. I'm actually really tempted to be controversial and pick England in my three.. I certainly would have done so before Flintoff retired but it does look a little bit thin without him.

    In short, I have absolutely no idea as it stands so I'll hold off on my vote.

    Yeah but that wasn't the question - see what Athlai said in brackets. The Australian attack that should be considered for this exercise is, I guess:

    Hilfenhaus
    Siddle/Bollinger
    Johnson
    Watson
    Hauritz
    North

    Nah ATM, Steyn they are their only good bowler, all the rest are unproven. As aforementioned definately AUS at fully strenght.

    Oh yeah true, that does look a little better. I'm going to sit on the fence, I don't know which 3 look the best, must say it's impossible to leave out Pakistan though.

    Kallis and Ntini are proven performers too.

    Which Australians would you consider proven?
