    That is due to the far greater volume of Cricket now than there was 10-15 years ago.

    To suit ur argument you have named only ex-cricketers, then they didn't use to play the amount of cricket which is played now.

    Today we have a situation when every second fast bowler is getting injured in every second series. Jason is hardly ever fit, Bond is going to make a come back after a long time, Zaheer Khan and Nehra are injury prone & McGrath too is still not fit.So its stupid to pin point one bowler for being injury prone really.

    We don't need Shoiab and Lees, we have quality left arm pacers and in terms of sheer speed we have Munaf Patel, who is bowling faster than before and will easily derail both Lee and shoiab.

    And that is just one speedy guy, in next five years we will line up the cricket world with express fast bowlers.

    FRAZ, all i have to say to you is WAKE UP! i'm sure all indian supporters DREAM of india being the best side in the world, having the best batsman and bowlers in the world, and being the perfect side

    HOWEVER...MOST indian supporters know the difference between fantasy and reality..unfortunately, you seem to be one of the disillusional ones, where you cant' tell the difference between your fantasies and reality..rather unfortunate... But the thing is, your making yourself look like a total idi0t infront of the rest of the CW community. TO say that zaheer,nehra, agarkar are the best bowlers in the world is utterly ludicrious...With bowlers like pollock,ntini,mcgrath,warne,murali etc. etc. out there! heck EVEN pathan is better than nehra.....BALAJI is better than nehra... yet you placed him as number one in the WORLD! he can't even get a game in the indian sidE! shows alot about YOur judgement

    seriously mate, stop kidding yourself, and try not to make a fool of yourself

    Actually Deeps you got Fraz wrong. He is NEITHER an Indian fan nor did he ever claimed that Zaheer,Ajit and Nehra are best bowlers.He was simply passing a sarcastic remark on some dumb Indian kid who has written on his website that Akhter ,Lee & Sami are chuckers and Zaheer Nehra and Ajit are the fastest bowlers in the world!

    Well sorry, but since i thought the kid was considering Zaheer/nehra as the fastest bowler in the world, he must have some reservation about the action of Lee.

    and akhtar, and sami,and ntini,bond,gillspie?,williams?, blignaut?

    just to name a few that are pretty quick, and most faster than nehra,zaheer and agarkar in terms of consistent pace..and in some cases, max speed as well

    Once again you are wrong , That dumb kid (all the kids of that thinking) was saying legal fastest bowlers are these three and also the best legal bowlers.and That dumb kid said one more hilarious thing that AA has the best Nippy action in the world .( Should have said nappy). And that dumb kid (kids) had a pacific target of one country which they deny playing .

    I FORGOT ...... I wont say that again , But you know what , I hate media . and you said "that dumb kids own web site" . I never said that .It was actually a very famous web site and these analysis were done by there journalist . I've never been against any one for no reason . but sorry to say "chooray" , your country men even in this forum , always try to degrade others especially their neighbours and their toung has different hidden disses and unwanted criticism which are called taunts in other words . Not just me who has started this thread . there are so many other threads started like a latest one which was (lol, its old ). But any one saying this thing is considered to be saying Pakistani thing , No matter if the person who is speaking the truth is Pakistani or not. Only because Pakistanis are the first to identify these hidden worst disses and replying them . I mean cricket is a game one wins and other loses . Doing stupid analysis and only remembering one's own victories is not a very wise thing to do . So ,may be you are considering me a Pakistani , Then let me tell you one thing , My dad's one, But my mom's an Indian . And my grand ma is pure British , And I am some what Canadian. So it is unquestionable for me to do a baseless cricticism on any one on race basis. Its just the journal conception and the macro Idea which comes under consideration. Now some one even dragged an issue of " A pakistani scientist is involved in Atomic leakage so India should'nt visit Pakistan." Now the answer is 800 US scientists , 1265 Russian scientists , countless french and 1000's more even one Indian foreign minister have been invoved in such illegal activities and were found guilty . And no one has ever raised this issue in the media like this . If one Pakistani is found then I dont know why Indian media is putting peppers on the wounds like this . And now some forum members who after watching VB finals have certainly remembered this issue and presented a sugar coated venom to avoid the Pakistani tour ... I hate these things and I keep on replying these . Any ways sorry ........... Thanx a lot
