    Starc, chameera, amir, rabada or Joseph

    5 exciting quick young bowlers who are likely go on to lead their countries attack for many years..but who do you think has the potential to be the best
    Amir for me he seems to have every fast bowling skill covered and his pace is up at 90+ even though he has been away from the game for 5 years.

    KG as he is the youngest of them, the only one with a 10 wicket haul in test cricket atm and most importantly not a cheater who shouldn't be playing international cricket.

    Amir and Rabada are nailed on ATGs.

    Chameera has been impressive for me. Like this guy.

    Got no idea. I googled him and came up with this guy

    Alzarri Joseph | West Indies Cricket | Cricket Players and Officials | ESPN Cricinfo


    So maybe it's a reference to the recently concluded U19 World Cup?

    Ah.. ok I suspected that. Way to early to group him with the other names.

    I'd put my money on Starc, I keep getting the impression he'll suddenly crack the code in 5-day cricket and go on a ridiculous run like his namesake did for those 8 glorious Tests in 2013-14 (though hopefully his lasts a bit longer). He dominated the last World Cup individually like no one has done since Klusener in '99.

    Amir is gun, the only question mark over him is how will he bowl in tests outside pitches which are dead?

    Starc has the potential to be much better than Johnson because he does have the ability to move the ball both off the seam (in helpful conditions) and in the air..which means potentially he can take wickets in places not called Australia or South Africa. He just has to be bit more consistent about it and rely a bit less on the yorker the way he does in LO cricket. If the yorker is your main wicket taking delivery in tests, then it won't take the best batsmen much time to figure out how to neutralise you.

    I think he can develop the swing/seam skills to a more consistent level, there's no stopping him in test cricket.

    You know what's interesting Amir being in the side tends to coincide with Pakistan playing mostly away.
    2009-10 - Sri Lanka, Australia, England
    2016 - England, New Zealand and Australia (with a potential WI series in between at UAE).

    I'll be very interested to see how he bowls in UAE as well because ultimately Pakistan does play most of their cricket there and he will need to figure out a way to bowl well there.
    I know he can reverse the ball, so that will come in handy. Rahat Ali and Junaid (at his best in the past) were able to find movement with the new ball albeit for a short period.
    So Amir should pick it up as well.

    Not sure on either right now. Rabada is bound to take a lot of wickets. However, to be ATG he would have to take them at a terrific rate which doesn't always happen. Example: Ntini, Harbhajan. Amir, we don't know how long he will last. If he keeps performing for a year or two, we might be more confident on his lasting.

    Starc for me as well. He keeps improving. It has been nice to see the progression the last few years.
