    Who will be the next bower to do a "Johnson"?

    A few years ago i'm sure many would have laughed if someone would have suggested that Mitchell Johnson would turn into the monster he currently is now, and it got me thinking...if you had to put your money on any other pacer out there today who could rise up and totally dominate like that who would it be? a Neil Wagner perhaps? Shami? what about the seven foot Pakistan pacer? You just never know what can happen as Johnson is proving.
    One day world cup winners- Champions trophy winners- T20 world cup winners- 29 test series without defeat record- Highest run chase in test history record and some think we're minnows? :P

    Johnson always had the ability. None of the others do.

    The Jacket can bowl in the 150's and is a Johnson clone.

    Ishant Sharma isn't doing too bad atm.

    Well...now you've asked!!

    We have young Sheldon Cotterrell who's a lefty just like Mitchell, big, strong and QUICK too!!..never had a great test debut in India but tbh he wasn't even fit having come off a injury. He has all the tools to do it though if he works hard.

    The only person that I could think of having the same effect would be a returning Mohammed Amir

    I reckon there will be a point where Trent Boult goes into God-mode for a while. More Philander-like than Johnson-esque though.

    Or Matt Henry. He could be a very interesting international prospect.
