    The bowler that Starc reminds me of is Bruce Reid, which is no bad thing. It is really way to early to have any sensible idea of who may be best. If all goes right, Australia could have a seriously good pace attack.

    And if Hazlewood can overcome his injuries, he might be better than all of them.

    Agree. Probably the worst of the three at the moment but, as long as he doesn't keep getting hindered by these injuries, I'm backing him to finish the best of the three.

    Are we talking test cricket here? Would comfortably back a fit Cummins to be more effective than Starc.

    Yep.

    Would comfortably disagree tbh. Starc has noticeably improved quite a bit since his Test debut and Cummins's one Test was pretty flattering compared to how he usually bowls as such. Don't get me wrong - as I said, I think Cummins will be the best of the bunch unless he keeps getting bitten by the injury bug, but I'd take Starc ahead of right now fairly comfortably, even if he was fit.

    Reckon a lot of people will be shocked when they see Starc play in Australia this summer. He is going to tear **** up. **** is the real deal.

    Starc has improved, but not enough for me to think he'd match Cummins' consistency. Starc still gets his lines wrong too much for my liking.

    i mean, we're still taking about two inexperienced 22yos and an injury plagued 19yo. I'm not sure how anyone can really say with great confidence which one (or 2) will perform best in a test match. Although i guess i should note i'm still shocked at how pattinson and cummins started off.

    I think Starc should be first choice in ODers and T20's though. no debate for me.
