    Yes it's the best. Vaas and Murali are certainly ODI greats and Malinga is emerging as one. Jaysuriya and Dilshan are among the best of the part-timers out there. When Fernando bowls well the attack becomes really formidable and one of the all-time best in ODI's. We will have to see if he can maintain the kind of bowling he has shown in the last couple of games.

    I think more than anything they have great variety to their bowling attack.

    They have most bases covered when it comes to bowling, with the likes of Vass,Murali,Malinga,Fernando and Jayasuriya backed up well by part-time options of Dilshan and Arnold.


    So on any given surface their bowling attack can be effective due to the variety and quality of their attack.

    What has shocked me is how well Fernando has bowled. For someone who I thought was a worse bowler than Dilshan, he's really stepped up in this WC.

    I agree regarding Fernando, this is by far the best I have ever seen him bowl. Whenever he has toured New Zealand he has been about 5km slower and always looked far less accurate and threatening. He has really stepped up though, and filled in the weak link in Sri Lanka's bowling attack.

    He's bowled way better than I was expecting but TBH he's done that for a game or two before.

    IMO New Zealand's attack is the best at this World Cup. Bond /Oram/Styris/ Vettori / Mason or Franklin... and sometimes complimented by Jeetan Patel seems to be better all round bowling combination whereas SL 's 4th and 5th bowlers have been known to struggle, NZ does not have any such issues with Styris being the star all rounder of this World Cup so far.

    And Australia's attack will go up one or two gears if the need arises ...But so far their batsmen have done enough - so the bowlers haven't needed to do anything spectacular - also because apart from SA and West Indies they have not played any top 8 teams... SA game was on a belter ...so you can't compare bowling in those pitches to other games...

    McGrath/Bracken/ Tait/Hogg/Watson +/- Symonds haven't needed to anything spectacular so far.. but one feels in crunch games coming up they will go up a couple of notches on their performance.

    If Aussies haven't played against any top 8 sides expect SA and WI, then how many top 8 teams have NZ played against in this WC [ they have only played against ENG and WI].

    Does it matter who has played the top sides? everyobody who got to the world cup deserves to be there. A good team can get the job done against both minnows and giants.

    Yeah Fernando's been hitting the deck extremely hard, and getting good pace. On top of that, he's cut down fairly well on his extras, because he used to have a ridiculous no-ball problem.

    Let's see how he goes for the rest of the WC.

    Was his no-ball problem bad? I never knew about it.
