The Wall of Indian cricket, Rahul Dravid, recently said that the current Indian fast bowling unit is the best that the country has ever had. Rahul Dravid has given his reasons to support his claims, and if a man of his stature asserts something about the game, it is only natural to recognize that he has a very valid point.
The Indian fast bowling unit, especially in Test cricket, has gone on to rule the world. The last 2-3 years have seen a rise in quality in the Indian fast bowlers, and they have become the most lethal pace attack in the world. A glimpse of it was evident during India’s tour of Australia in 2018 when the India National Cricket Team won its maiden Test series in Australia as the Indian bowlers rattled through the Aussie batting line up.
Now, Rahul Dravid has come out in support of the Indian bowlers and said that this is the best India fast in the history of the country.
Rahul Dravid Heaps Praise On The Indian Fast Bowling Unit
Former India captain Rahul Dravid was asked about his views on India’s pace battery during his live chat on Sony Ten Pit Stop. Dravid said that India has in the past had good pacers but never had the kind of depth in their fast bowling cupboard as they have now.
“As a collection of fast bowlers I think this is the best fast bowling attack we have had. We have got great fast bowlers like Kapil Dev, Javagal Srinath, Zaheer Khan,” said Rahul Dravid.

“But as a group and in fact even outside the main group, the likes of Navdeep Saini, Siraj, Shardul Thakur have been doing well at the A team level. What’s different is that you don’t have to worry about which three bowlers you will put in the park. They are all doing well,” the former India Test number 3 said.
Rahul Dravid said that the Indian team today has fast bowlers who are all different from each other and that makes them a potent combination.
“India has developed depth in fast bowling and they are all peaking right now. Also they are all different. Bumrah with his angle, Ishant has height, Shami is skiddy and swings the ball more, Umesh is slingy so they are all unique in their own way,” Dravid said.
