    Not fair to judge SL on the basis of one, admittedly horrible, series against an English lineup in prime form, and where they were struggling with injuries and Malinga's retirement. Would expect them to do much better in their next series at home.

    England vs SA at the top is contentious but I'll go with that. Depends how much credit you give Swann, really.

    You've ranked the West Indies too high. They're doing well on very helpful pitches this season but it's a very recent development. Should be below Aus, India and Pakistan.

    Australia are too low. There's a lot of talent and skill in the Aussie attack, they just need to sort their **** out. And select properly.

    i certainly rank swann. though i am also interested to see how he goes against the massive indian lineup this summer.

    the lack of a decent spinner is what makes me rank the aus attack on the low side. but yes, perhaps they are ranked too low. maybe hauritz could, if given a longish run in the side, really help balance the attack.

    the west indies attack could, conceivably, have roach, edwards, rampaul, taylor, lawson (heard somewhere he was back to full fitness - is this correct?), bishoo, benn, and the other tall spinner whose action was questioned. not bad at all.

    Reckon the aussie attack is really underrated on here due to one bad series.

    They might have done better if the selectors just stuck with the 4 or 5 best bowlers + Watson as all rounder instead of picking 10+ over the last 7 tests.

    History tells you that chopping and changing looking for the magic formula rarely works, occasionally you stumble upon a good one but it is more by luck than judgement.

    We have a number of decent of pace bowlers but they're all performing averagely atm with no clear stand outs - Hence the continued shuffling of the attack

    I also think England have the strongest attack since SA are pretty ****ed if Steyn or Morkel break down

    Depending on how you think they went in India last autumn, it's either two or three.

    On the one hand they stopped India, in India, from posting over 500 in four attempts, and got into a position to win in Mohali.

    On the other hand, India got 400+ in both first innings, couldn't get rid of the tail in Mohali or defend a decent score in Bangalore, and still lost both matches despite batting reasonably well.

    Then there's the Pakistan series, where there's no question the front line bowlers performed badly.
